I really like Macan EV styling.


Yeah - thatís Porsches USP.

Guess Iíll have to take another look at the macan ev design- to me Iíd kind of 6 of one half a dozen of the other compared to the current. Some aspects are better and some are worse

The back of the EV reminds me of the taller tesla (not sure of the model name), I do like the EV but am also a big fan of the current Macan.

I actually like both the current Macan and Cayenne from the outside. I think the rear taillights look good on them.

especially since it is based on the Q5. I could never mind any info on the Macan AWD system when I was considering one.

I think the awd system is significantly different. And the suspension damping and roll control.

PDK helps a bunch with the base engine too, IMO.

Looks good to meÖ at least via this pic. The actual headlights have been relocated to the lower part of the front bumper facia like the G07 X7 LCI

Not to sound like FC, but it’s been my plan all along to get the Macan EV. Which is why I am fine having a Porsche GTI in the interim.

The one wildcard is that I like the hybrid system so much, I could be convinced to consider a Panamera eHybrid.

I like this styling better than the Taycan. But you guys know how cheap I can be, if Taycan prices plummet I would get a CPO Taycan instead of a new Macan EV.
