The Porsche Macan (Type 95B) is a high-performance five-door luxury crossover SUV produced by the German car manufacturer Porsche from 2014.[1] It is built in Leipzig, Germany. The Macan range includes many variants, including the Macan, Macan S, Macan S Diesel, Macan GTS and the Macan Turbo. The Macan shares a platform with the Audi Q5. It is the cheapest vehicle currently sold by Porsche.

History[edit]

Initially announced in November 2010 as a development project,[2] and formally announced by Porsche in March 2011, the Macan model name was decided in 2012[3] and is derived from the Indonesian word for tiger.[3]

The Macan was originally known by its code name Cajun, a portmanteau of Cayenne Junior or comes from a name of a member of ethnic group descended from Acadia living in the U.S. state of Louisiana (not to be confused with Porsche-Diesel Junior tractor).[4][5]

Concept, design and production[edit]

The Porsche Macan shares its platform and wheelbase with the first generation Audi Q5 (2008–2017).[6][7] The suspension configuration is based on, and heavily modified from the Audi,[citation needed] but the engine, transfer case, suspension tuning, interior and exterior body are unique to the Macan. It is also 1.7 in (43 mm) longer and 1.4 in (36 mm) wider than a Q5.[8]

The Macan is produced alongside the Panamera and Cayenne, with which it shares a strong resemblance, in Leipzig, Germany in a newly extended factory.[9] The Macan compact crossover SUV offers a more compact body than the Cayenne midsize crossover SUV. The Macan is also intended to be sportier than the Cayenne; for instance the Macan has a standard 7-speed dual-clutch PDK gearbox, which is more responsive, while the Cayenne has an 8-speed Tiptronic transmission for smoother shifts.[10][7]

As of June 2017 1,071 units of the Macan were sold and 1,871 delivered that month, and 7,060 sold for that year to date, Porsche Cars North America Inc. announced.[11]

In July 2018 Porsche announced that more than 350,000 units of the Macan have been delivered world-wide since 2014, with over 100,000 deliveries in the Chinese market.[12]

The production version of the Macan was unveiled at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show[13] and 2013 Tokyo Motor Show.[14] European models went on sales in spring 2014 and the initial line-up of models included the Macan S and Macan Turbo.[15][16]

US models arrived at U.S. dealerships in late spring 2014 as 2015 model year vehicle. Early models included Macan S, Macan Turbo.[17]

Drivetrain and performance[edit]

At launch, three different models and engines were available, all being V6 format:[18] a 3.0-litre Macan S with 340 PS (250 kW; 335 bhp), a 3.6-litre Macan Turbo with 400 PS (294 kW; 395 bhp) and a 3.0-litre, 258 PS (190 kW; 254 bhp) Diesel, with a CO2 emissions of 159 g/km. The Macan GTS was announced in October 2015 to fit into the gap between the Macan S and Macan Turbo.

All Macans feature a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive, with several options available including air suspension and Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM).

Porsche subsequently released a base Macan for select Asian markets and the United Kingdom. Using a reworked version of the Volkswagen Group's 2.0-litre inline-four EA888 Gen 3 engine used in multiple applications such as the Audi Q5, the Macan was the first Porsche to be powered by a four-cylinder since the Porsche 968, just preceding the four-cylinder Porsche 718 (Boxster and Cayman). This engine became offered globally for the Macan's 2017 model year following an announcement in March 2016. A 204 PS (150 kW; 201 bhp), 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel was due to join the range at a later date.[19] But this engine variant was never actually offered in any market world-wide.

Second generation (EV)[edit]

Porsche is currently developing the next generation of the Macan, which will be fully electric. It is planned to use two electric motors with all-wheel drive and the same two-speed automatic transmission from the Taycan.[31] The new Macan is expected to begin production in 2023. Before then, Porsche will update the first-generation Macan in 2021, which Porsche intends to sell alongside the all-electric Macan at its debut.[32]
