The face of every model in the Macan range lays bare the dominant sporty genes of their hereditary line. Markers include the characteristic headlights, which are recessed in the bonnet. The large, imposing air intakes of the front apron are just waiting to inhale life. Every single second.
The bonnet stretches through to the wheel arches. This lends the front a broad and powerful presence and reminds us of the legendary Porsche 917, which won countless victories in the early 1970s – including at the 24h of Le Mans, where it held the distance record for 39 years.
The side profile is typically Porsche. From this angle, every muscle appears flexed – like a predator ready to pounce. The roof line slopes distinctively down towards the rear, drawing the customary sports car contour that promises excellent aerodynamics. Our designers call it the Porsche flyline.
A visual highlight of the Macan is the sideblades. Not only do they set a sporty accent, their design pays homage to the 918 Spyder. They make the proportions of the doors appear slimmer and the flanks seem much sleeker and sportier. Sideblades are available with a paint finish in matt black, Lava Black, in the exterior colour of the vehicle or – for a particularly exclusive statement – in carbon. A high-gloss black finish is reserved exclusively for the Turbo Exterior Package.
In sizes of up to 21 inches, the wheels of the Macan are equally eye-catching. Each particular Macan model is recognisable by its brake calipers: black on the Macan, titanium grey on the S variants and red on the GTS and Turbo models. Typically Porsche.
The classic Porsche sports car design reveals itself at the rear: slender at the top, widening into broad shoulders above the rear wheels – a homage to the 911. The styling of the tailgate gives the rear end a particularly harmonious form. For convenience, the tailgate on all Macan models is equipped with an automatic powerlift function. The slimline LED taillights have three-dimensional proportions, which gives them an extraordinary appearance of depth – and captures your attention. The overall effect is to make the Macan look low, wide and thus intimate with the road – like any genuine Porsche. After all, a muscle-toned body is meant to be admired from the rear as well as the front.
Of course, our engineers took great care to ensure that the interior of the Macan is just as intensive with sports car sensations.
