Report: Porsche Nearly Doubling the Macan’s Production Forecast for Next Year

Even though the Baby Boxster is still supposedly on hold, we all know that the Baby Cayenne (AKA the Porsche Macan) will make its debut sometime next year. We also learned, via Autocar, that the Macan will bear a 370-horsepower 3.0-liter V6 at its top end and will likely feature a 220-horsepower 4-cylinder at the bottom end. Mixed in the middle may be a 295-horsepower, 3.6-liter 6-cylinder and a 2.0-liter diesel engine with 190 horsepower.

Additionally we knew that Porsche was planning to limit first-year production to just 45,000 units. According to Automotive News Europe, via WirtschaftsWoche, Porsche has recently upped that number to 75,000 units. There’s no rhyme or reason to the increase, but apparently Volkswagen, Porsche’s new majority owner, sees the Macan as a key piece to hitting the 200,000-unit sales number goal by 2018.

The reports of this increase come without any sources cited, so we are not sure of its validity. Porsche will certainly make an announcement of this increase in production numbers soon, given it is a true report. Hopefully, VW seeing that there is a market for Porsche to get into smaller and less-expensive versions of its existing vehicles will lead to a restarting of the Baby Boxster project, but, we’re not holding our breath on that one.

We’ll update you with any more information that pops up on the Macan as we inch closer to its debut.

It’s a great news, the only meaning of this is that Macan’s work are the most car which was bought by people and those people who really want it can now have it.

I just hope they will not sell it in a high price because people might not buy it and they will regret doubling it.

Then, those Macan’s Fans must be really happy hearing this news.

I don’t know if doubling the production can help them to the car sales.

One thing is for sure. They want to increase their sales by doubling their production next year. I don’t know how they come up with this project.

Why do they need to double it? It think this adjustments will be a great change in Porsche.

How much will they want to sell that? I think it’s too expensive like their most common supercars.
