The original Sports SUV is back with a new look and more power in the facelift! It’s also the one car in the Porsche line up that we hadn’t reviewed in RBR up until now, so a quick look at the history is in order! if you’ve seen my Cayenne coupe video, you’ll recall the story of how the saved from near collapse, with sales figures eclipsing 911, becoming the car known as the “SUV that can tow an entire carmaker." This was back in 1992 when Porsche was struggling in debt, with new CEO Wendelin Wiedeking axing models like 928, revamping the production methods to promote part sharing, and also brought in the baby 911, aka Boxster. Another car with big margins, sales and profits. The next plan, was genius. Take the formula of the Boxster: a smaller cheaper arguably more dynamic car. Mix it with the practicality yearned for by customers in the Cayenne: and boom. The baby Porsche SUV was born!! Now that development project was originally known as the Cajun, as in Cayenne Junior. This was then renamed later to Macan, which famously means tiger. It was the first SUV to drive like a hatchback or Spart sedan, and since has given rise to a huge number of rivals. In 2018, the Macan outsold the 911, Cayman and Boxster combined! In this facelift, gone is the old 3.6-litre turbocharged V6, and in its place a new 2.9-litre twin-turbo unit sits. Well, relatively new at least – we’ve already seen the sub-3-litre hot-vee unit (with both turbos nestled between the cylinder heads) - Same engine we have seen in the RS5. Still this gives 39bhp more than the old Macan Turbo, and a 0-62mph time of 4.3sec should Sport Chrono be optioned. The new Macan gets standard fitment of Porsche Surface Coated Brakes, which feature a tungsten carbide coating on the cast-iron discs that Porsche says reduces wear, increases friction, yet reduces brake dust by 90 per cent. PASM adaptive dampers are standard, regular steel-sprung suspension - while options include air suspension. But how does it stack up to all those rivals? Today we explore: - History of the Macan - Cayenne origins - The Porsche Cajun - First 2014 Porsche Macan - Macan Facelift - Macan vs Macan S vs Macan Turbo - Power and performance - Future Fully Electric Macan Render - Exhaust sound - Interior review - Full drive Review - Conclusion Up next on on RBR is the GLA 35, Porsche Cayenne Coupé GTS, Taycan Turbo S, New E Class and MUCH MUCH More!!
