2015 Porsche Macan S: Center-Mounted Tachometer

April 9, 2015

2015 Porsche Macan S

That our 2015 Porsche Macan S utilizes a center-mounted tachometer speaks volumes about its purposeful design. Center-mounting the tach says "this is a priority." I've driven cars with sporting intent which place less emphasis on knowing engine speed. Fiat 500 Abarth, I'm talking to you.

Engine speed should never be an afterthought, at least in cars with internal combustion engines. And placing it prominently in the center only feels right in a vehicle that will ever be driven with purpose - even an SUV. Porsche manages to do so without compromising the other primary job of the instrument cluster - displaying vehicle speed - by making it redundant via both a digital readout and an analog gauge.
