2015 Porsche Macan: Silicon Beach Surf Wagon
January 13, 2015
Old woody station wagons filled with surfboards are as large a part of Southern California culture and lifestyle as the palm tree, the traffic jam and the movie star.
But times change. L.A.'s rough-and-tumble Dogtown is now Silicon Beach and the surf wagon has evolved from big American classics to big buck European crossovers.
Crossovers, like our long-term 2015 Porsche Macan S, have become a regular at So-Cal surf spots including San Onofre, El Porto, Santa Monica and Malibu. Just don't try to squeeze in the longboards.
As you can see, however, our three shortboards from Roberts, which range in length from 5-feet 4-inches to 5-feet 6-inches, fit perfectly after dropping the larger side of the Porsche's 60/40 split-fold-down rear seat, leaving just enough room for my pals Bodhi and Johnny Utah.
