Porsche likes to take their Macan über-grocery getter to the track, but of course they do—they’re a fast-car company that doesn’t want to be called a sellout for building crossovers. Fortunately, owners are now trolling 911s and other like sports cars in a crossover capable of pulling 1.13 G in a corner. It is…
Renault’s resurrected performance brand Alpine may be most associated with classic sports cars, but sadly, sports cars just don’t pay for themselves like they used to. So, Alpine’s taking a page from Porsche with a plan to build a performance SUV to rival the Porsche Macan and more importantly, make bank.
I’m about to complain. Not about the 2017 Porsche Macan GTS, that thing is damn near perfect. I’m about to complain about my life, and you’re going to hate me for it.
There are two ways to think about the four-cylinder Macan: either as the least expensive way to get a Porsche, or a really overpriced, lifted hot hatchback. It turns out, a lot of Macan buyers don’t care about the number of pistons under the hood.
I’ve just learned of some truly distressing news. Porsche North America is recalling 243 2017 Macans over some potentially faulty front anti-rollbar links. The fear is that these links could cause the cars to “oversteer.” Shit!
The Porsche Macan looks more “tall hatchback” than “small SUV,” but you won’t feel much relation to either behind the wheel. What do you need to know before you buy one? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
You there! Did you buy a Porsche Macan in April? Hey, there’s a solid chance the answer to that is “yes.” Last month, the German maker of sports cars and luxury SUVs had its best sales month ever in America, and it’s all thanks to their new small crossover.
Automakers are always going on about "aspirational" cars, so Porsche devised a plan to stoke the flames, transforming unwitting shoppers' cars into the new Macan with its "Magic Mirror".
Well, not just any crossover but the 400 horsepower Porsche Macan Turbo, one which is faster than any crossover has a right to be. The good people over at EVO took a Macan Turbo and an M3 to create a highly useful piece of consumer advice.
"It's the sports car in its segment." That's the phrase used to describe the 2015 Porsche Macan by Porsche management. But what, exactly, does that mean? And is this the sportiest crossover you can get?
Today at the official press introduction of the 2015 Porsche Macan, we learned Porsche's future product plan for their new baby SUV. And it includes electricity, oil burning, and fewer cylinders. Get ready for the variants.
The Porsche Macan is actually surprisingly compact, squat, and handsome in person. This 360 degree view should give you a better sense of how the car is more than just a shrunken Cayenne.
UPDATE: Porsche says the Macan will not be built in China, so that was easy to figure out.
Porsche is celebrating the world premiere of the Macan crossover utility vehicle at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.
About 10 years ago, Porsche introduced the Cayenne, an SUV that was hated by purists but has been a financial boon for the company. The idea of a high riding Porsche is no longer heresy. And that's why the time is right for this, the Macan.
The Audi Q5 With A Bodykit, er, excuse me, I mean the 2015 Porsche Macan, is inching closer to production. Its power specs just hit the Internets, however, and the engines under the hood are most certainly not Audi Q5 With A Bodykit numbers. We're talking solid amounts of power for a small SUV.
