2015 Porsche Macan: Functional Styling Subtleties
October 28, 2014
So our 2015 Porsche Macan S has been sitting in my driveway for several days now which has given me plenty of opportunities to observe the subtle merits of its design. One of my favorites is also one of the least obvious.
Every Macan is twin turbocharged and twin intercooled. And in this case we're talking about air-to-air intercoolers which need fresh air to perform their cooling duties. Those who pay attention to such details recognize that means Porsche has to package the intercoolers in a place with real airflow. On the Macan they're located in the two ducts flanking the grille. But the packaging is subtle. You've got to look deep into those ducts to notice that they're highly functional.
Just a little detail demonstrating this SUV's performance roots.
