Porsche wants to deliver more Macan crossovers to US dealerships

Article by Christian A., on January 26, 2015

2015 is a very important year for the Macan in the United States and Porsche knows this very well. As a result, the German manufacturer plans to increase supplies of its new mid-sized crossover in order to make sure that customers don’t have to wait too long for the Macan.

According to Joe Lawrence, COO of Porsche Cars North America, the German company doesn’t want to lose the customers who want a Macan as they need to wait six moths or more since the vehicle went on sale last May.

Still, Joe Lawrence didn’t say how many Macan will reach the United States market in 2015, but we do know that 7,241 vehicles were sold during the seven months it was on sale last year. Lawrence also added that the Macan saw a strong demand worldwide and will also help Porsche to achieve its goal of selling 50,000 vehicles in the United States this year.

Currently, Porsche offers the Macan Turbo model for $72,300 (excluding the $995 destination charge), while the Macan S is priced at $49,900, excluding the $995 destination charge.

For those who don’t know, the Porsche Macan S is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 biturbo petrol engine that produces 335 hp (250 kW) and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.4 seconds (5.2 seconds when equipped with the Sport Chrono Package), while top speed is 245 km/h or 157.8 mph.

Meanwhile, the Macan Turbo uses a 3.6-liter V6 biturbo engine that generates 394 hp (294 kW). The engine is able to push the crossover from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds (4.6 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package), while top speed is 266 km/h or 165.2 mph.
