  1. Nine years ago, Porsche introduced its first diesel-powered model, the Cayenne SUV. This was followed by diesel variants of the Panamera and Macan. But Porsche has now ended production of all diesel models. According to Autocar, Porsche has ended sales of the Macan S Diesel and Panamera 4S Diesel. A Porsche spokesman said the move mirrors the “cultural shift” of the brand's customers. The spokesman also mentioned, “another software update” for the diesel engines that are part of “ongoing consultation with the authorities”, likely hinting at regulatory issues concerning the future of these engines. The removal of diesel is no great loss to Porsche as a source tells Autocar the fuel only made up 15% of automaker’s total worldwide sales. Porsche's focus will now be on hybrids and the upcoming Mission E electric vehicle. Source: Autocar View full article

  4. Porsche is putting big expectations on their next vehicle, the Macan crossover. According to Bloomberg, Porsche CEO Matthias Mueller said that new the Macan will help the brand exceed 200,000 sales globally. That's three full years ahead of the brand's original goal. “We’re transferring the genes of the Porsche brand into a new market segment. Porsche will remain a manufacturer of very exclusive premium cars,” said Muller at the start of Macan production. Since the Macan's debut at the LA Auto Show last year, demand from customers was very high. Reportedly in some European countries, the model has sold out. Porsche says if demand outstrips the supply, they will increase production beyond the 50,000 Macans being planned to be built at the company's Lepizig plant. Muller also hinted at the Macan getting a GTS model. "GTS versions have a tradition at Porsche. We haven't made a final decision yet regarding the Macan, but I'm sure it makes a lot of sense," said Muller.

  6. by Drew Dowdell Porsche unveiled its fifth model line, the Macan, today at the LA Auto Show. Available in two models, the Macan is Porsche's attempt to create a sports car in the compact crossover segment. Porsche sees a growing market for Hi-Po grocery-getters. The Macan S is powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 producing 340 horsepower and can accelerate the car to 60 mph in 5 seconds flat. If that doesn't get your groceries home fast enough, you can opt for the Macan Turbo which packs a 3.6-litre twin-turbo V6 pumping out 400 horsepower and enabling a 4.4 second sprint to 60. Both models feed the power to Porsche's 7-speed dual-clutch automatic and then out to all four wheels. Top speed for the Macan Turbo is 164 mph. Remember, no crying if you spill the milk. As far as appearance, the exterior Macan looks exactly like what you would expect a compact Porsche crossover to look like. Inside. the Macan doesn't wander from that pattern with a design that looks like a slightly tamer version of the interior used in the Macan's bigger brother, the Cayenne. The Macan isn't just a paved-playground bully though, Porsche made sure that Mom can get the kids to Grandma's house even in bad weather. With the air suspension set at "High", the Macan has a ground clearance of 9.06 inches. For reference, the 2013 Subaru Forrester and the 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk only have 8.9" and 8.7" respectively. But if something does go wrong, the Porsche Macan features a new safety technology to keep the kids.. and Mom.. safe. Multi-collision brake technology works on the premise that one quarter of all accidents involve a second collision after the first hit. The brake system of the Macan triggers when the airbag sensors detect the first collision and activates maximum braking to try and prevent a second hit. Looking good and going fast is not typically heard of in the compact crossover segment, but in the Macan, Porsche has unleashed an interesting opening shot.

  10. William Maley Staff Writer - CheersandGears.com October 22, 2012 Porsche's new Macan crossover will be using the platform from the Audi Q5 and Porsche is saying the Macan will not be a Q5 in Porsche clothing. “Everything has been modified.
