Those who prefer to blaze a trail of their own don't need to follow the lead of others. We're thinking specifically about cars known as compact SUVs, characterised by five doors, five seats, all-wheel drive – and, of course, a higher sitting position. But aren't they lacking a certain something?
Something that adds a little life, lets us enjoy a more intimate relationship with the road and delivers intense driving pleasure. A concept that boasts plenty of space for hobbies, leisure and sport. But no room for compromise. Compact, concentrated and intense, but still powerful. Practical but never ordinary.
It is by these standards that we created the new Macan, and saw it emerge with four distinct guises. Each one a sports car. Each one unmistakable in its own segment. Each one a genuine Porsche – from design and driving dynamics to equipment specification. From the allrounder to the ultra sporty S variant, and from the efficient marathon runner with diesel engine to the Turbo that sets new performance standards in its vehicle class.
All Macan models were developed, tested and built in keeping with the Porsche philosophy. That's where we take sporty style and performance from the racetrack and inject it into everyday driving. We make it as efficient as possible – and, of course, just as safe and comfortable. No efforts were spared until our engineers achieved their overriding development objective: the first sports car among compact SUVs.
The new Macan – built for an intensive life in which the thirst for experience and thrills and spills are ever-present, and in which new challenges are a permanent driving force. Built for a life that refuses to be hemmed in by conventions and feels all the more authentic for it. Direct and intimate.
A sports car that gives us what we're looking for, even in our everyday life: that feeling of being alive.
