2018 Porsche Macan
One might ask why an iconic automotive giant like Porsche—known for and built on a legacy of the speedster, the coupe, the elegant and graceful sports car of film, of flight, of fancy—would bother entering into the saturated and competitive luxury crossover utility vehicle market. That question is not just answered, but rendered in folly, by the performance and perfection of the 2018 Porsche Macan.
Macan is the Javanese name for tiger, and the essence of its etymology inhabits each curve and corner of the luxury CUV. The Javanese people are known for their adaptability and evolution, absorbing the very best elements and influence from cultures all around the globe, respecting each appropriation in reverence of ancestry, spirit, ambition and excellence.
Tigers are majestic, solitary, unique. They stand out in the jungle for their menace, their demand for respect. They’re quick, slight, strong, bold and beautiful – qualities embodied by their automotive namesake, the 2018 Porsche Macan. The German automotive monarch’s CUV offering promises a ride like no other, exactly what you’d expect from a Porsche.
The base Macan is 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine promising 252 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque – taking your from zero to 100 in 6.1 seconds and 228km/hr. The Macan S upgrades to a 3.0-litre V6 and 340 horsepower; going to 100 in 5.0 seconds and reaching 250km/hr. A GTS – the high-performance Macan has 360hp, goes from zero to sixty in 4.8 seconds and tops out at 255km/hr. The largest of the majestic German tigers? The Macan Turbo, with 3.6 litres, 100 in 4.4 seconds, and hitting 260 on its journey through the concrete jungle.
It takes a lot of bravado to name your CUV after the wild’s most fearsome and fickle beast. Few in the industry would take such a chance, and even fewer could exceed expectations. The 2018 Porsche Macan takes that chance, and roars with perfection.
