Wallpaper of the Day: 2019 Porsche Macan

The Porsche Macan took another 911-inspired update for 2019, ushering in a mid-cycle facelift worthy of the brand name. The front end received heavy revisions, including updated corner vents and an updated grille. The daytime running lights were even lowered too, a move that somehow makes the front end sportier than before. Those quad LED headlights come standard on all models while the new apron is more aggressive than before – a nice touch to say the least. The rear end even took on a new diffuser-like element, if that’s what you would call this better-side-of-bland fascia insert. The interior even took new updates, including a larger infotainment screen and a new steering wheel, while the chassis even saw some updates for better driving dynamics. In the end, the 2019 Macan is a gorgeous piece of German engineering, so we decided to make it our wallpaper of the day. We’ve included a pretty awesome hand-picked example below, but we also have a sizable gallery that’s free for the taking as well. Go ahead and knock yourself out!

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid tops the range with 670 horsepower

2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid tops the range with 670 horsepower

New Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid SUV blends blistering acceleration with genuine green credentials

Porsche has revealed its top-of-the-range SUV offerings, in the form of the new 2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid and 2020 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid Coupe. These are not only the most powerful Cayenne models ever, but also the quickest too. They also come pretty close to fully loaded in terms of optional extras and, since both are hybrids, the fact that their battery pack is some 30 percent larger than that of any electrified Cayenne previously sold, the extra all-electric range is also welcome.

The Porsche Cayenne Coupe Just Might Be the King of the Autobahn

The Porsche Cayenne Coupe Just Might Be the King of the Autobahn

Porsche Cayenne Coupe Turbo Just Showed Why Is It The King Of The Autobahn, The Slayer of the Electric Nonsense, And An Absolute Dominator

Have you ever drove on the German Autobahn? Or, basically, on any European highway for extended periods? Let me paint you a picture of reality!

The speed limit is usually at 130 kph (80 mph), but you can comfortably cruise at, say 85-90 mph without getting pulled over! I did it just a couple of days ago in Italy where I transversed from Trieste to Monza (yes, The Track - I’m lucky I know). At that speed, and a bit of luck with the traffic, you sit in the "slower" lane and occasionally jump to a "faster" lane to take over slower stuff (Fiat 500, Polo 1.0, a truck or something else that goes like 80, or less). It can be a tedious job, but in those instances when you do switch lanes to take over slower stuff and accelerate to something like 95 mph, a few things can happen.

You can uneventfully overtake a car you want to pass, accelerate a bit more fervently because of a local delivery guy who drives a massive Mercedes Sprinter Van at, at least, 100 mph or put the pedal to the metal to get the *uck off that faster lane for something serious to pass by. No, I am not talking about Ferraris, or Bentleys (you see those occasionally), but about Audis, BMWs, and Mercs with boosted six-cylinder diesel engines. They EAT miles! They are serious!

And then, the real owners of the Autobahn - a worryingly large number of Porsches - come into play! Why worryingly? Well, there’s so many of them that you question yourself (quietly) if you’re stupid because you don’t have one!? That is exactly where this guy who tested the new Porsche Cayenne Turbo Coupe on the German autobahn fits. He is kind of a king on the Autobahn. The guys behind the AutoTopNL YouTube channel took the maddest Cayenne Coupe and tested it on public roads in Germany. The driver achieved 297 kph (185 mph) in this SUV. It is legal!

2020 Mercedes GLS vs 2020 Porsche Cayenne

2020 Mercedes GLS vs 2020 Porsche Cayenne

Merc’s biggest hauler goes toe to toe with the vehicle that rejuvenated the niche of fast SUVs

I picture you glancing over this article and thinking, "How can he compare these two SUVs, they’re not even playing ball in the same field?", and while that is true, it’s not an exercise in futility. Both the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS and the 2020 Porsche Cayenne offer buckets of luxury and are expensive, so it’s worth putting them head to head to see what type of SUV is, ultimately, better.

In this matchup, you’ve got on the one hand the bear-like, full-size GLS SUV or the mid-size, sporty Cayenne SUV. The latter doesn’t offer as much interior room but can get you from A to B quicker. Also, it’s worth comparing these two mean peddlers because comparing the new GLS with the X7 is all too predictable - but we’ll tackle that too, don’t worry!

From the outset, you can probably guess who the winners will be in each category, right? I mean, just look at the GLS: it has a straight roofline and an almost straight back end to round things off. It features a longer wheelbase and up to seven full seats with all the amenities one could ask for. It must be the winner when it comes to the interior category, right? And the Cayenne must be the winner in the drivetrain department due to its higher output engines in the more expensive trim levels and, by and large, it also looks a bit nicer due to its lower stance, right? But things aren’t as simple as they seem from the outside.

2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Quirks and Features

2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Quirks and Features

2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe With A Lower Roof, Pepito Pattern And Two Spoilers From The Get-Go

The latest addition to Porsche’s great line up is the all-new 2020 Cayenne Coupe. As one of the most financially meaningful contributions to the lineup, the Cayenne Coupe gathered all the best Cayenne abilities and offered them in a sexier, sleeker and, seemingly more sophisticated shape.

While I can tell you right away that the Porsche Cayenne Coupe is a Cayenne with a differently styled roof, it also does hide its true nature with a few essential novelties compared to the wagon-style brother.

In essence, the Porsche Cayenne Coupe sacrificed a lot of the Cayenne utilitarianism for style and design. With money printing machines like the X6, GLE Coupe, and the Q8 on the market, Porsche simply had no choice but to offer a more beautiful Cayenne. And this, while still strangely ostentatious, may well be the best-looking Coupe-SUV on the market. Here are all the important novelties you need to know about it:

Porsche’s new competitor for the BMW X6 has style

Coupe SUVs tend to suffer from polarized opinions – you either like them or absolutely despise them. They represent the weirdest blend between body styles that the automotive world has ever seen. BMW is the culprit for starting the trend, and other automakers must follow. That’s why we’re looking at the new 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe – Porsche had to have a competitor for the BMW X6, and now they do. Powered by either a 3.0-liter six-cylinder or a 4.0-liter V-8, the new Coupe SUV can deliver as much as 542 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. Here at Topspeed, nobody can really agree on whether the body style is attractive or not, but we know at least some of our readers are in love with the body style, and the Cayenne Coupe will be the subject of all your desires. So, we’ve decided to make it our wallpaper of the day. Check out our favorite below or pick your own from the gallery at the bottom of the page!

2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe

2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe

Porsche’s answer to the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe

The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe is a sleek, coupe-style version of the familiar Cayenne SUV and the German company’s competitor for the BMW X6, Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe, and the Audi Q8. Unveiled in 2019, it goes on sale for the 2020 model year with drivetrains borrowed from the regular Cayenne. Design-wise, it has a much sleeker rear end, but Porsche also altered the front fascia, which looks a bit more aggressive than the regular SUV.

Aimed at premium crossovers built by German companies, the Cayenne Coupe benefits from all the features available with the regular Cayenne. However, this SUV offers limited headroom for rear-seat passengers and has a slightly smaller trunk. Does it have what it takes to give the X6, GLE Coupe, and Q8 a run for their money? Let’s find out in the review below.

The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Is the Continuation of a Dumb Segment

The 2020 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Is the Continuation of a Dumb Segment

A series of compromises doesn’t make it good - it makes it worse

It’s no secret that I’m not exactly the biggest performance SUV fan. On more than one occasion I’ve likened the segment to training elephants to tap dance (sure you can do it, but what’s the point?). To me, an SUV is really good at carrying lots of people and stuff, occasionally good at going off-road, and that’s about it. Sure, you can stuff it with power and mechanical grip and every speed trick in the book to make it fast, but in the end, if it’s performance that you’re after, you’re better off with a smaller, lighter platform, preferably something specifically designed for the job. To make matters worse, the SUV “Coupe” segment almost always hurts one the SUV’s biggest strengths (interior room) to bolster one of its biggest weaknesses (styling). And to me, that’s dumb.

2020 Porsche Macan S

2020 Porsche Macan S

More power, new features

The company’s smallest crossover yet, the Porsche Macan arrived in 2014 and slotted under the highly popular Cayenne. After four years on the market, the compact SUV was updated to mid-cycle specifications. The Macan S is very similar to the base model we saw hit the spotlight earlier in 2018 on the outside. It’s identical inside the cabin as well save for the trim-specific features. However, it’s a different story under the hood, as the "S" badge comes in tow with a larger, 3.0-liter V-6. What’s more, while the four-banger lost a few horses with the facelift, the V-6 delivers a bit more power and torque.

Update 03/14/2019: We’ve updated this review with fresh images of the 2019 Porsche Macan S that we took during the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Check them out in the gallery at the bottom of this page!

2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Rumored to Debut In a Matter of Weeks

2019 Porsche Cayenne Coupe Rumored to Debut In a Matter of Weeks

The German performance SUV standard gets a lower roofline

The 2021 Porsche Macan Will Only Be Offered with an All-Electric Drivetrain

The 2021 Porsche Macan Will Only Be Offered with an All-Electric Drivetrain

Porsche going all-electric with the 2021 Macan makes logical sense when you think about it

The Porsche Macan, the same model that is currently offered with four- and six-cylinder engines, will officially be offered as an electric model when the new-generation makes its debut in 2021. You read that right, the Porsche Taycan isn’t even technically on the market yet, and Porsche is already committed to turning one of its most popular models into EV territory. And, that’s not a rumor- the cam directly from Porsche itself. The most logical reason behind this is because BMW is set to unleash the BMW iX3 soon and, since the Macan battles it out with the X3, it only makes sense. As of now, there are no plans to offer any type of fuel-powered drivetrain, so the Macan will become Porsche’s third EV next to the 2020 Taycan and the 2021 Taycan Sport Turismo wagon.

2020 Porsche Macan S: New Engine, More Power, Same Sexy Appearance

2020 Porsche Macan S: New Engine, More Power, Same Sexy Appearance

Porsche’s entry level crossover is ready for primetime

The Porsche Macan often gets overshadowed by its bigger and more accomplished brother, the Porsche Cayenne. But, that’s about to change because the new Macan S breaks the crossover out of its shell. Not only is the 2019 Macan S sexier, but it also packs a new engine that produces more power than its predecessor. Those three elements are the biggest highlights of the new Macan S, underscoring what we’ve all been waiting for from the model since it first arrived in 2014. Put together; the new Macan S sheds its rough-around-the-edges label in favor of a more balanced ride. Don’t look now, but it appears that Porsche’s entry-level crossover is ready for the big leagues. The new Porsche Macan S starts at $58,600.

2019 Porsche Macan

The Macan gains a mild facelift before the next-gen model hits dealers

Introduced in 2014, the Porsche Macan is the company’s second SUV. Slotted below the popular Cayenne, it’s also Porsche’s smallest crossover yet. The German firm updated the Macan for the 2019 model year, calling it a second-generation model.

When Porsche decided to step into the SUV segment with the Cayenne, Porsche purists weren’t all that happy, expecting the brand to soldier on with different 911 variants until times end. But, the Cayenne turned out to be a huge success, and the German brand decided to come out with a compact model named the Macan. While not as popular as the Cayenne, the Macan was also met with great enthusiasm. Porsche delivered more than 350,000 units from 2014 until 2018, with more than 25 percent of them shipped to China. As a result, the Germans paid big attention to this upgrade and made significant changes inside and out. Unfortunately, those of you who expected more powerful engines will be disappointed. But more on that in the review below.

Porsche updated the Cayenne for the 2018 model year, but the hybrid version wasn’t quite ready. Now that the 2019 models are about to roll into dealers, Porsche has finally pulled the covers off of the new 2019 Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid, a direct replacement for the Cayenne S E-Hybrid. It brings some serious improvements to the table over its predecessor and the standard Cayenne too. We’re talking about things like faster acceleration, more electric range, better efficiency, and increased power, among other things. It also brings all of the new styling cues and technology introduced with the 2018 Cayenne to the hybrid market.
