    Macan-Junior - based on Q3

      ↵

    Any thoughts regarding the Macan Junior based on the Q3? Apparently far away 2020 - but as we know car development takes 6 years....

    Not as ugly as an Aztek, but pretty ugly.

    Makes the BMW i3 look like a design masterpiece ....

    That rendering is ugly but there is absolutely room for a smaller crossover. The Macan isn't that small... Think Evoque size, 3 or 5 doors...

    Porsche may consider another below Macan SUV model but right now, they do not have the capacity to actually build one, so it may take years before this car shows up. If ever...

    The Macan isn't actually much smaller than the Cayenne, it is just a bit shorter and almost has the same width. Also, the Macan is not really light. The Turbo with air suspension weights around 2 tons.

    The Macan is much lighter than the Cayenne and even the Panamera...

    Is the Evoque smaller than a Macan/Q5? It looks same to me.

    I just thinkg about that Q1 which is so hideously wrong in size. Way to small for being an SUV - looks more like a Mini.

    And biggest fear I have - the luxury brand becomes the wannabe-luxury-brand or other way round - the luxury brand for wannabe's

    Not quite right, I'm afraid.

    The Macan Turbo is 155 kg heavier than the Panamera V6 for example.

    The Macan Turbo is only 45 kg lighter than the Panamera Turbo.

    Also, the Cayenne V6 is only 115 kg heavier than the Macan Turbo.

    Even more interesting: The Macan Turbo is 365 kg heavier than my already not very light 991 Carrera 4 GTS Cabriolet.

    However, in comparison with the competition, the Macan Turbo is quite "light": The Audi SQ5 (313 hp) is 75 kg heavier than the Macan Turbo.

    Smiley Brand awareness has risen over the past couple of years. 

    It is funny: When it comes to medicine, the chemical stuff we put inside our bodies, people couldn't care less about brands, generic products have a huge success and people want the cheapest possible. When it comes to cars, phones or tv sets however, people go for top brands. Weird. Smiley

    This is indeed very weird. As my wife is a drug dealer like you I got more aware about that and I now insist more on brands, too. Maybe selective but overall I got more sensitive.

    Same actually is true for food. The discounter food is the most demanded. And if the fish is out of a genetic manipulated breeder or not  is for most people irrelevant. Shouldn't it be the other way round - don't care about your materials and think more about what to put inside you?

    Smiley I guess people are willing to pay more money for stuff which actually tells other people that you are special. Smiley What others cannot see, well...not so valuable. Smiley A shame.

    YEP! Thats why people rather order huge rims, instead any active accident prevention systems! Smiley

    that explains why Panamera handles so well for such a large car

    You pick the lightest models vs the heaviest of the Macan... Anyhow the simple fact the Macan is lighter than the Panamera tells you everything you need to know.


    Re: Macan-Junior - based on Q3

    I tried to make a comparison and I think it is quite obvious that the Macan Turbo isn't the heaviest in its class but also not a highlight regarding lightweight constructions.
