THIS is a Porsche???
The Porsche Macan. First off, it's got four damn doors. The Cayenne was awful. The Panamera was grotesque. This ... THING is an abomination to everything that Ferdinand Porsche stood for. It looks like a Mazda 3, only uglier - and three times the price.
I don't understand it, I really don't. You're expecting people to shell out $50K for something that looks like a Hyundai knock-off of a Toyota? Really? Now, it *does* have 340 horsepower under the hood - that much I can dig. However, it's got a 0-60 time of 5.2 seconds. That's fast - for 1988. In 2013, well, it's not so fast - The Subaru Impreza WRX STi can do 0-60 in under 5 seconds. For just a hair over half the price of the Macan. Sorry, so not impressed.
I dunno. I mean, Obviously there's a market for this, otherwise Porsche wouldn't have invested the time and money to develop the line. I suspect they were looking at the Range Rover Sport and thinking to themselves, "Hey, there's a lot of dumbass rich people out there willing to spend ungodly amounts on money on performance they'll never use. Let's get some of that stupid-people-money!" and in that vein, I salute you, money-grubbing whores of Porsche. You've done a fantastic job of separating stupid people from their money. Bravo!
Not only that, you've given the rest of us a convenient overpriced box to put said stupid people in so we can readily identify them!
That is all.
