The Porsche Macan is an interesting concept to me- a downsized Cayenne positioned as a volume seller to support their less profitable enterprises. And until this point, that’s all I thought it was. Just a moneymaker with no soul to keep the lights on. However, despite its deviation from Porsche’s typical, driver oriented design philosophy, they are becoming more and more appealing to me. In the same segment and not too far from the price of a loaded Lincoln MKC, it is infinitely better equipped, higher performing, generally much more car for the money. Plus, it looks pretty bitchin’, way better than any number of crossovers or wagons. Anyone with me? It seems that Porsche’s larger cars get a pretty bad rap around here.

Or you can go with that
