Saw my first Macan today. Sad and emotionally deflating. HH
Meh, those are just the vehicles they sell to suburban housewives so they can keep making GT3s.
Cheer up, you could have been a designer in a car company, transferred to the SUV’s.
A cute wife, 5 kids and a big mortgage.
Talk about quiet desperation.
What's your current GT3 count?
I was sorely tempted, but ordered a 911 Carrera S Cabriolet because in my life it would have greater marginal utility.
I think the Macan looks pretty good for an SUV...
...and it has performance no Subaru ever dreamed of.
I kid about the Porsche SUVs though. They are really well engineered. We had a Cayenne Diesel that would get 700+ miles a tank, 31 mpg around town and 18mpg towing an enclosed trailer at 80mph...
Heck, we used it to tow GT3s....
Then again, there’s no accounting for my taste. I like Subarus too. The WRX and STI are fun and peppy. I daily drove a WRX for a few years that never let me down.
"...and it has performance no Subaru ever dreamed of."
"2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STI 0-60 mph 4.4"
"2015 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Sedan 0-60 mph 4.6 "
Do I need to cut and paste all the years and times that are less than 4.7?
Those numbers seem pretty similar to what I would expect from a Subaru.
Some things never change.
Pilots bought new and brought over a lot of now classic Porsche and other performance cars back in the day; Walther pistols too (with no import stamps ).
Which Subaru SUV's performance is comparable to the Porsche? I'm thinking I can afford it.
Just seems like a smaller Cayenne. Everyone seems to love the Cayenne, so they should love this. I found myself in the minority when I said I was disappointed that Porsche came out with the Cayenne, and was surprised at how many people loved it.
They make what there is a demand for.
They have also made tractors, tanks, attack vehicles and even irrigation pumps.
2017 Subaru Forester XT has pretty similar numbers to the entry level Porsche.
4 smoking tires instead of just 2. Sounds good to me.
I like the cayenne better. It's also hard for me to tell what this really looks like from this picture for some reason. Maybe the color?
SACRILEGE an SUV is a BMW X5....
(But maybe a Cayenne will do for my next when the 530Xi Touring wears out...)
Worth a look, then. Thanks.
Heck, it's even half a tick quicker than an old...
"2004 Subaru Forester 2.5 XT Turbo 0-60 mph 5.2"
Maybe you could ask someone who owns both cayenne and a porsche sports car which one gets driven more. I bet the answer is the Cayenne (or Macan).
And really what is not to love with a nice comfy GT SUV that is livable in daily life, handles like most performance cars, can go in all weather, and has a twin turbo V8.
I heard rumors that a cayenne stayed right the tail of an R8 V10 all the up berthoud pass....
I am just upset no low range anymore in cayenne.
