The Touareg always looked better in my opinion and both are coming off the same assembly line in Slovakia anyway - then "finally assembled" (i.e. putting the last couple of screws on) in Germany so as to have the "made in germany" thing. Anyway, if I wanted a Porsche, I would get the GTS. Definitely not the V6 nor the TDI - that just looks like I can barely afford the SUV. While I own and love VW, I would most definitely NOT want a pure VW engine in my Porsche...no thanks!
