2023 Porsche Macan EV

2023 Porsche Macan EV

The upcoming Porsche Macan EV was ambushed by the paparazzi while charging its batteries

It is clear Porsche, like many other carmakers, is working towards electrification. Although the Porsche Taycan, with all its versions, makes it apparent, the upcoming all-electric Porsche Macan is the next in line to go electric. New spy footage captures the Macan EV doing cold-weather testing, accompanied by two Cayenne pilot cars. It also seems like the test prototype is experiencing difficulties in the cold, snowy climate – something Porsche is currently addressing as the vehicle nears production.

Report: Porsche Working on A Large, Three-Row Crossover-Sedan

We’re not sure what it is, but they say it’s part sedan, part crossover, whatever that means

A new report is claiming that Porsche is looking to expand its SUV lineup even further with a model that slots above the Cayenne as a flagship crossover of sorts. The model, which is currently without a name, was shown off in a rendering to various dealers, but it is expected to launch in the second half of this decade. Does Porsche need a three-row crossover? Well, there’s some interesting information coming together on this one.

2022 Porsche Macan S

2022 Porsche Macan S

This mid-level performance crossover is the perfect blend of performance and luxury

The Macan S sits in the sweet spot of the Macan range. The updated 2.9-liter twin-turbo engine blends with Porsche’s handling wizardry to bring performance and handling so close to that of the Porsche 911 that you won’t believe it. But is it enough if to be relevant in a world where it must compete with cars like the BMW X4, Audi SQ5, and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio? Let’s dive in.

The Gas-Powered Macan Won't Survive Beyond Its 10th Birthday

The Gas-Powered Macan Won’t Survive Beyond Its 10th Birthday

As Euro 7 emissions regulations creep closer, Porsche considers a short-lived dual-Macan strategy

We’ve come a long way from the original idea that the 2021 Porsche Macan would only be offered with an all-electric powertrain. That was the story in 2019, which quickly turned into word that the next-gen Macan would be all-electric but would be sold alongside the current Macan– something we called “Porsche’s dual-Macan strategy.” Now, it seems there’s even more to the story, and you might not like what you’re about to read.

2022 Porsche Macan

2022 Porsche Macan

Porsche’s baby SUV receives yet another nip and tuck, and the GTS is now the range-topping model

The Porsche Macan has been on the market since 2014. Following a revamp in 2018, Porsche has reworked the Macan once again to make it ready for life alongside an all-new electric model that will shortly join it. With its second facelift, the combustion engine model is buying more time. The upcoming Electric Macan will be the first vehicle to be constructed on the Audi and Porsche PPE (premium electric platform).

The Porsche Macan EV Might Not Be A Macan At All

The Porsche Macan EV Might Not Be A Macan At All

The Porsche Macan EV is a Macan, but it’s not a Macan, and it’ll beat out the Taycan in one “significant" area

Things escalated quickly between 2019 and 2020 over at Porsche, with the former bring news that the 2021 Porsche Macan will only be offered with an all-electric drivetrain. Of course, 2021 is here, and guess what? The electric Macan doesn’t even exist outside of Porsche’s walls. That’s because in early 2020, we learned that Porsche was thinking about a “double Macan” strategy in which it will update the current-gen Macan to sell alongside the next-gen electric Macan. It’s good news for those that don’t want to make the transition to electric go juice, but it also means the next-gen Macan had to be delayed. Now we’ve learned something new, and it seems that the Macan EV might not be a Macan at all. Wait… what?

Porsche Is Preparing Another Facelift For The Recently Updated Macan

Porsche Is Preparing Another Facelift For The Recently Updated Macan

The Porsche Macan is about to be updated for the third time

The first-generation Porsche Macan was launched in 2014, which means that it’s six years old as of 2020. Given that modern car life cycles take five to six years, it’s about time for a redesign. But it seems Porsche wants to keep the current Macan on the market a while longer. At least that’s what a set of new spy shots we just received suggest.

Porsche Macan EV Timetable – Everything is Changing

Porsche Macan EV Timetable – Everything is Changing

Is Porsche’s dual-Macan strategy still on the table?

The Porsche Macan’s timeline isn’t written in stone and seems to be changing so frequently that it’s hard to keep up with. Back in March of 2019, we heard that the next-gen 2021 Macan would be offered as an EV only. Then, news about the Macan EV pretty much dried up until February 2020 when we learned that Porsche would sell the current-gen Macan (in facelifted form) alongside the next-gen Macan EV. A new report, coming directly from Germany, says Porsche is considering the bravest move it’s made since it almost replaced the 911 with the 928.

Porsche's Dual-Macan Strategy Is About More Than Easing the Shift Into Electrification

Porsche’s Dual-Macan Strategy Is About More Than Easing the Shift Into Electrification

Remember how the next-gen Macan was going to be electric? Well, that was only half the story

When the current Porsche Macan makes its generational shift in 2022 or 2023, it was originally expected to make the shift into EV territory as well. The original “plan” was for the next-gen Macan to be offered only as an EV and ditch the ICE altogether. All that has apparently changed, at least to some extent, if a new report is to be believed. Let us introduce you to the dual-Macan Strategy.

2021 Porsche Macan GTS

2021 Porsche Macan GTS

Porsche has released the all-new Porsche Macan GTS after a short hiatus, and this time around it pushes things to the next level with a more powerful engine, reworked chassis, and exterior features that make it standout in the pack.

On the outside, the Macan GTS features new front and rear fascias, new side skirts, and a handful of black trim pieces for extra flare. On top of this, you’ll be able to spot the new GTS by the 20-inch RS Spyder Design wheels which are, you guessed it, dressed in Satin Black. On the inside, you’ll find plenty of Alcantara, including on

The seat center inserts Center console armrests Door trim panels

You can also opt for the GTS interior package that includes leather and accent stitching in Carmine Red or Chalk. The multifunction sport steering wheel can also be had here, and it’s actually exclusive for the Macan GTS, if you can believe that.

The big news here is the 2.9-liter V-6 under the hood. It delivers a cool 375 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque – that accounts for an extra 15 ponies over the previous model. It’s also enough for a 4.7-second sprint to 60 mph and a top speed of 162 mph. Adaptive air suspension is also available and, with it, the suspension will be lowered by 0.39 inches (10 mm.) Pricing for the Macan GTS starts at $71,300 and you’ll be able to get your hands on one starting in summer of 2020.

The 2020 Porsche Macan Turbo is Mean as Hell With a Cayenne Heart

The 2020 Porsche Macan Turbo is Mean as Hell With a Cayenne Heart

Smaller engine, bigger power. It’s also the quickest Macan yet!

Having updated the first-generation Macan after five years on the market, Porsche unveiled a revised version of the Turbo model for the 2020 model year. The refreshed Turbo remains heavily based on the regular Macan, but Porsche made big changes under the hood, replacing the old 3.6-liter V-6 with a smaller 2.9-liter unit. While it’s not the most powerful Macan ever produced, it’s definitely the quickest. Let’s find out why.

Video: 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Vs. 2019 Audi Q8 - Luxury Coupe SUV Showdown

German opulence, plus-sized

Stuttgart just unveiled the latest addition to its Cayenne SUV lineup - the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe, which brings all the speed and finery of the standard Cayenne, but with a lower, sportier roofline. This thing certainly looks like its got what it takes to be a success in the segment, but how does it compare to its German sibling from the Four Rings, a.k.a. the 2019 Audi Q8?

Even the baby Porsche SUV needs some love

The Macan might be a small Porsche SUV but it still shares at least small amount of Porsche 911 DNA. For 2020, Porsche has completed its mid-cycle update to the Macan lineup by introducing the latest styling over to the Macan S. Of course, not a lot changed on the outside, but the S now comes with some extra power and a little less weight – two things anyone can get behind. Along with the release of the new Macan S, we managed to get our hands on a nice allotment of fresh wallpapers, so we figured we should give it some on-screen love and feature the new Macan S as our wallpaper for the day. We’ve showcased our favorite wall paper down below but have also attached a gallery to the bottom of this page with other great shots of the 2020 Porsche Macan S.

Please Buy a Porsche Panamera Rather Than the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe

Please Buy a Porsche Panamera Rather Than the 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe

If you want something fast and practical from Stuttgart, there are better options out there

Porsche just unveiled the 2020 Cayenne Coupe, which is a lot like the standard Cayenne, but with a “sportier” roofline. As a fan of fast cars and less of a fan of fast SUVs, I feel as though it’s my duty to encourage anyone considering the Cayenne Coupe as their next vehicle purchase to instead take a gander at the Porsche Panamera lineup, which offers more performance, equal levels of luxury, and nearly equal practicality.

Porsche extends Cayenne family with new Coupe model

Did the world really need a Porsche Cayenne with a “steeply sloping,” fastback-style roof and more squatted rear end? Apparently, it did because the new Cayenne Coupe is real and has just broken cover with its sights firmly set on the BMW X6, Mercedes GLE Coupe, Lamborghini Urus, and Audi Q8.

One of The 2020 Tesla Model Y's Biggest Rivals, the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo, Arrives in 2020

One of The 2020 Tesla Model Y’s Biggest Rivals, the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo, Arrives in 2020

I can’t wait for the Tesla Model Y - Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo staredown!

Just as Tesla continues to bask in the attention generated by the Model Y’s unveiling, Porsche is looking to steal the California-based automaker’s thunder by announcing a very important detail about its own all-electric crossover, the Taycan Cross Turismo. None other than Porsche CEO, Oliver Blume, disclosed in Porsche’s annual sustainability report that the Taycan Cross Turismo will launch at the end of 2020. The announcement refutes earlier rumors indicating that the Taycan Cross Turismo isn’t scheduled to arrive until late 2021. Could this accelerated timetable have anything to do with Tesla’s launch of the Model Y last week? Porsche won’t admit to it, but it does feel like where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

Porsche's Design Division Gets Its Hands On The Latest Macan S

Porsche’s Design Division Gets Its Hands On The Latest Macan S

This is the best you can get, provided you are ready to spend a lot more than the car’s actual cost

All of you must have heard of Porsche’s in-house design division unless you are living under the rock. Known as Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, it became famous for working on the pre-facelift version of the Macan Turbo last year. Moniker’d as the Macan Turbo Exclusive Performance Edition, Porsche priced it at €166,091 ($190,492) – more than twice the price of two entry-level Macans. Now, the new Macan S is going under the Porsche Exclusive Knife.

2020 Porsche Taycan CUV

2020 Porsche Taycan CUV

Porsche is set to launch a crossover-styled version of the Taycan. It will be based on the Mission E Cross Turismo, will be more off-road-worthy, and will be the third official model in the Taycan range.

It won’t differ too much from the concept, featuring mainly detail changes, but the same overall body and design. Some details, like the mirrors, the roof, and the rear light cluster will be different, as we’ve seen on Taycan sedan prototypes that are currently undergoing testing.

The Taycan sedan will be revealed sometime in 2019 and hit the market in 2020, so the Taycan crossover should debut sometime after the turn of the decade.

The Porsche E Cross Turismo Concept Will Become the Production Version of the Taycan SUV

The Porsche E Cross Turismo Concept Will Become the Production Version of the Taycan SUV

The Taycan CUV will have some off-road worthyness to it... just a little

In a surprising turn of events, Porsche greenlighted the production of their Mission E Cross Turismo Concept. It is a strange, almost rugged, crossover-ish Porsche that grew from the architecture of the magnificently beautiful Taycan. Or the Mission E as it was known before acquiring the new name. Preparing for the production and the final development of the all-new electric cross, Porsche plans to create 300 new jobs at its home base in Zuffenhausen. This comes in addition to 1,200 jobs the company has already created for the production of the Taycan sedan.

The production version of the Mission E Cross Turismo will be a something like a Taycan wagon with a higher ride position. Don’t expect it before 2021 or 2022, though. After all, Porsche will increase investments into developing the electromobility solutions to $6 billion by 2022. The Mission E Cross Turismo Concept is only a part of this story.

2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Unveiled

2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid Unveiled

Stuttgart’s iconic SUV finds new plug-in power

Porsche just unveiled the latest iteration of its popular Cayenne performance SUV, and this time around, it’s got extra electric oomph to back it. Once again taking inspiration from the Earth-shattering 918 Spyder, the new Cayenne mounts a plug-in hybrid powertrain under the hood, with a 3.0-liter V-6 making 340 horsepower and an electric motor making 136 horsepower. Together they produce upwards of 462 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque (516 pound-feet of torque). A run from 0 to 62 mph is done in 5 seconds flat, while the 0-to-60 mph run is done in 4.7 seconds. Top speed is rated at 253 km/h (157 mph).

Meanwhile, the Cayenne PHEV will travel 44 km (27 miles) and achieve a top speed of 135 km/h (84 mph) using the electric motor only. To help it get there, the battery capacity was increased to 14.1 kWh, as compared to the 10.8 kWh of the previous model, a 30-percent increase overall. Plug it into a 230-volt connection, and it’ll charge in a little under eight hours, while a 7.3-kW charger reduces that time to 2.3 hours.

Active hang-on AWD helps it grip, as does the standard Porsche Active Suspension Management system. Options include the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control roll stabilization system, as well as a trailer hitch that lets you to tow up to 3.5 metric tons (7,716 pounds).

Inside, you’ll find a heads-up display, adaptive cruise control, and massaging seats, while the exterior is blinged out with 22-inch alloy wheels.

Sales kick off next year starting at just under $80,000.

Wallpaper of the Day: 2017 Porsche Macan GTS

The Porsche Macan GTS may be slotted between the Macan S and Macan Turbo in terms of pricing, and power, but its track-focused looks, impressive performance characteristics, and all-around hyped-up looks will likely make the GTS the most desirable of the Macan trim levels. And, now, you can have it on your desktop.
