2015 Porsche Macan: Impersonating a Cayenne?
September 3, 2014
If you buy a 2015 Porsche Macan S expect to have this conversation. A lot.
"How do you like your Cayenne?"
"It's a Macan."
"A Macan? I haven't heard of that. Thought it was a Cayenne. Do they still make the Cayenne"
"They do. This is new. It's smaller than the Cayenne."
"Cool lookin'. Looks like a Cayenne. Heck, I thought it was a Cayenne."
And kill me now.
The first time this happened I thought it was a fluke, but it keeps happening. I've had this conversation with everyone from valet parkers to my own father and after ten or twenty times you gotta ask yourself, "Is the Macan's strong resemblance to the larger more expensive Porsche Cayenne a blessing or a curse?"
