2015 Porsche Macan: I May Have Sold One
October 1, 2014
Carroll is spot on in her assessment of the new 2015 Porsche Macan S. It was parked in my driveway this weekend when my neighbor walked over to check it out. He owns a pickup, a 911, and his wife currently drives a Volvo SUV. He wants to switch her into the new Macan, knowing that its compact size will appeal to her and the Porsche-ness will appeal to him.
Over the years as their children have moved out of the house, they have been downsizing their cars. They both recently retired so he no longer needs his work truck, or the other larger vehicles they've driven in the past. They've had a Ford Bronco, an Excursion, and now the Volvo. It's time to get a vehicle just for them, something smaller and fun to drive.
I gave him a tour and he asked if he could bring his wife over later. (And if I would help convince her.) No need. As soon as she sat in the Macan she loved the seats, remarking how comfortable they are and how they seemed to hug her. She also liked the carbon-fiber trim and quiet cabin. He does not like the carbon-fiber trim, but likes the twin-turbo engine, paddle shifters and massive tail pipes.
After driving them both around the block, she wanted one. No convincing necessary. I wouldn't be surprised to see one in their driveway by the end of the week.
