    Re: "Cajun" is now...MACAN Thread Closed

    I can't agree with that Smiley i am not aware of any Porsche that looks good from every angle. In fact, the 991 is the first 911 that I actually want to own, despite of being a Porsche fan for a long time.... Same goes for the 981. Strange thing is that I can't exactly tell why.....Smiley I always loved them for some reason, but never wanted to own one, untill now.

    i guess I'm just a weird woman.Smiley

    I look at my 997 (GT silver)  and 987 (midnight blue) every day and I enjoy the shapes. So harmonious. This cannot be said about the new cars which are still very attractive but somehow not perfectly proportioned.

    I am biased? I don't think so. It is a matter of the proverbial "eye of the beholder". yes

    Beauty is also "in the experience of the beholder".  If you have pleasurable times with your car, for example, you will not see its "design" flaws; but it will surely appear harmonious and beautiful...

    ..but ugly as sin!


    Re: "Cajun" is now...MACAN Thread Closed

    The 997 doesn't have any flaws - I really like it.  The 991 just doesn't quite seem right to me and that pic of it next to the 2.7 RS demonstrated to me that it is a bloated and heavy handed design.  The 981 is good overall but I don't like the height of the rear bumper leading into the lip spoiler - the 981 Cayman works better in that respect but the profile is still a little odd.

    But I can't speak, my 987 Cayman S might be lovely from some angles but its down right horrific from some others

    At some angles the car looks quite good. at other angles ; not so much.

    Exactly.... Just like every Porsche.

    The 997 Carrera Coupe models especially the Gen 2 look good whatever the angle. No weak points IMO.

    +1

    The 997.2 was virtually perfect. Visually cohesive in the front with the diameter of the headlights matching the size of the LED running lamp/indicator units in width, air intakes all in the same size, defined flanks and haunches and a clean rear without trying too hard to look contemporary. In my opinion, a modern classic with all the necessary elements to be a timeless design.

    Better looking than the Q5. That is not hard to do.

    So they reveal tomorrow on that magazine? It looks like without camo, at least the front...

    If the Macan is that much lower than the Q5 then the design is somewhat more compromised, in terms of utility, and as a consequence, the Audi's design is more dictated by interior volume constraints.  Hence, the significant difference in appearances.  The designers of the Q5, therefore, had more constraints than the Porsche team.


    Re: "Cajun" is now...MACAN Thread Closed

    KresoF1:

    I think AMS should have included the Macan farther down their front page, in the comparison of die neuen kombis... IMO it is much closer to an estate type car, and is not really in the SUV class at all.  Porsche clearly pushed road performance even more than in the Cayenne... If successful, I expect the next Cayenne to be even more road focused.

    I don't dispute that. The fact is that the Q5 is not attractive, regardless of the constraints. I'm also not saying the McCann is a stunning beauty.

    Re: "Cajun" is now...MACAN Thread Closed

    No. I didn't feel the earth move. It's ok. Nothing more. Nothing less. (maybe it will grow on me).


    Re: "Cajun" is now...MACAN Thread Closed

    I think that for what it is (an SUV) it looks very good.


    Re: "Cajun" is now...MACAN Thread Closed

    I think it is just OK, except for the black plastic protector (?) on the side.

    The strip is too downmarket for Porsche IMO. Painted option a certainty.

    I hope the Macan will be the end of the line as far as the mainstream model proliferation goes.

    Re: "Cajun" is now...MACAN Thread Closed

    New AWD for Macan is actually RWD with electromechanically activated front wheel drive. Not permanent AWD like on Audi. I am dissapointed...


    Re: "Cajun" is now...MACAN Thread Closed

    Looks fine, little bit Infinity look from the back....and of course that black plastic "thing" on a side looks horrible..

    Honda CRV was (is?) like that except front wheel drive default with activated RWD.

    The system worked fine on snow, loose ground, mud,  of the extent that a normal user would encounter.

    Re: "Cajun" is now...MACAN Thread Closed

    I am confused a bit - AMS issues a report on the Macan today and Porsche keeps quiet ? So, there is no press embargo anymore ?


    Re: "Cajun" is now...MACAN Thread Closed

    Thanks for posting!

    Car looks great IMO. Since the roofspoiler and lower parts of the mirrors are also high gloss black, I guess the black side protector is part of a "black exterior package" like the Cayenne. No doubts, this can be painted in exterior color via some kind of expensive option. It's Porsche, so no shortage on options.....
