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

    Thanks for clarifying reginos :)

    So it's 'Ma-chan' (not 'Ma-shan').

    Rhymes with Meganne!

    I hope people don't start making Meccano jokes ... I actually liked Meccano when I was a boy ... it was educational ... I built all sorts of things with my Meccano set as a 9 year old ... better than the video games that today's kids play!

    Accent on first syllable, like in macho. Another cause for misuse!

    Ah, so it's 'Mach-an' rather than 'Ma-chan' :)

    You're right ... the potential for confusion is definitely high ...

    reginos:

    MACAN   How is it pronounced?   Mácan, Macán, or perhaps Máchan.

    Anyone familiar with Indonesian blush

    There will be a Macan Turbo and it will have a V6 but I don't know if mono or twin turbo. Smiley

    But will it be Audi V6 or Porsche engine?Panamera has Porsche engine Cayenne use Audi AFAIK


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

    reginos put it right - macan is pronounced like in macho, hence "machan"...though, it will really be interesting to see what the public will do with the name. If one pronounces it like, "makan", then it's also indonesian for "eating", which may be interesting for "easy-rider911" Smiley ...uuuups, sorry...SmileySmiley


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

    Rennteam is certainly busy with people coming here trying to find out more about the Macan ;)

    I don't have a clue. Does it make a difference ? Porsche will be part of the VW family anyway.

    It does to me at least psichologically,i'd like a proper Porsche rather than some tartrd up Audi-not thats anything wrong with Audi

    o if the structure is Audi developed would be nice if it had Porsche mechanics

    Why ? Is Audi that bad ? Smiley I understand what you mean but since Porsche is going to be an integral part of the Volkswagen AG, many parts will be used in the same cars with different brands. It will be almost impossible to tell which parts are used in which cars and which brand. I still think however that Porsche is going to develop their own engines most of the time but I wouldn't bet on it, especially not in the Diesel sector.

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

    It's pronounced mAcAn with a like Alpha and accent on the CAn.

    Porsche says it means tiger, but I go to Indonesia every year and it actually means to eat.

    Salamat Makan means bon appetit.

    So there you go, the Porsche meal.

    I think the word itself is cool, its meaning is just a bit ridiculous. It will certainly make the Indonesians laugh.

     

     


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

    Audi is not bad but is isnt Porsche either

    If  was interested in a Q5 i know where Audi dealership is

    It just got me thinking-since Porsche alreadi uses 2 3.6 V6 engines one of them could be found in Turbo Macan

    It just slipped my mind that there also Audi 3.0T as a possible candidate

    Also i read in Autocar article interior could share parts with Boxster which is great idea IMO unles its just journalists fantasy

    Also i've allways been fond of Touareg since it was Porsche developed-marketing surely is a powerfull weapon

    ...not quite...anyway, it will be interesting to hear, what the english speaking world will do with this name...


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

    The video is nice. I guess it is an indication the Macan marketing program has started. We should start getting more details on a regular basis.

    I think the V6 will more likely be the VW sourced one.  I think the main reason Porsche developed a new V6 for the Panamera was the height of VW's narrow angle 6; it was too tall to fit under the Panamera hood. I don't think there will be a similar problem with the Macan and the VW 6 would almost certainly be cheaper to produce. 


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

    See that's what we get.  We made fun of Cajun and now we ended up with Macan which sounds worse than Cajun Smiley.

    It will depend on the height of the engine bay. Porsche had to make a V6 (Porsche V8 minus 2 cylinders) because the VW V6 like in Cayenne is too tall for the Panamera engine compartment. If both engines can fit, it will be a matter for the accountants I think.

    Unfortunate choice for the UK as that name will long be associated with the family name of the little girl who went missing on holiday in Portugal.


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

    easy_rider911:

    Actually, we're both correct. 'Makaan' means 'house' in Arabic as well :)

    And it means 'house' in Urdu BTW :)

     

    "Makaan" means location or place. Never heard it used to mean home in Arabic...

     


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

    If it looks anything like the sketch, count me in!

    makan...means house...in hindi

    could be a big seller here in india, though

    personally, names apart, this looks a helluva lot more chic than a cayenne, cleaner lines ....

    I'm gonna stick w a classic 911 than these crossovers....

     


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

    Yup, like I said, it means house in Urdu as well :)

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

    Regardless of the pronunciation or meaning this car will be a winner especially if the sketches are close to the final style. Does it matter to the buying public what the model is named? Hell, many cars are only identified by numbers. Much to do about nothing.
