Porsche Macan, Countdown To UnveilingBy: Jennifer Curra - October 13, 2013
Only thirty-eight days left. No, not until the release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Only thirty-eight days until the unveiling of the new Porsche Macan.
Known for the unique combination of sleek style, refined amenities, and controlled speed this vehicle boasts to being made for a life that does not succumb to conventional restraints. Not bad for a vehicle that means “tiger” in Indonesian.
The Porsche website has this to say about the new Macan.
Build a compact SUV? No, we’d rather think outside the box.
We’ve built what we always build: a Sports Car. Five doors, five seats and yet intimate with the road; boasting plenty of space for hobbies, leisure and sport. But no room for compromise. Compact, concentrated and intensive, but still powerful. Practical but never ordinary.
The Porsche website goes on to liken the Macan to being the epitome of excitement as shown from the following description.
The new Macan – built for an intensive life in which the thirst for experience and thrills and spills are ever-present, Built for a life that refuses to be hemmed in by conventions. A Sports Car that gives us what we’re looking for: that feeling of being alive.
The new Macan. Life, intensified.
Besides the five doors, the Porsche Macan will also include two turbo engines and LED quad headlights. The price varies depending upon selected amenities with the starting range being $52,000.
There is much hype for the anticipated selling power of the Macan. Daniel Schwarz, who is an analyst at Commerzbank AG, shared his thoughts about the potential market performance for the vehicle.
“I expect Porsche earnings to rise next year. The Macan is set to be the key earnings driver in 2014, especially in the second half of the year,” Daniel Schwarz said.[Images Via Porsche]
