12. Porsche Cayenne
Ever since the first Cayenne appeared in the early 2000s, the market for quick luxury SUVs was born. This Porsche with four doors, a raised body and all-wheel drive may have offended a lot of brand purists.
But it also brought a lot to the segment in terms of driving dynamics, performance and prestige. Up until that point, Porsche only made two-door sports cars. However, with the Cayenne, it became a force in the SUV market, as well.
