Because it's just a Macan (SUV) I personally would get something basic like black or white or gray.

Miami Blue

I will never own a black car again. They get to hot and while they look great for about the first 30 seconds after you wash them, they look like crap as soon as any dirt hits them!

Miami blue with those wheels hands down. If you want to be anonymous go with black and the GTS style wheels. Really no contest unless you’re overly shy.

Alright boys he went with the Miami Blue.

It ultimately came down to YOLO. He's wanted a Porsche his entire life and always wanted it in an exotic color, these wheels are icing on the cake. This will feel special and be something to look forward to every day. A black Porsche is handsome, but it's a bit boring. You can't keep playing it safe and worrying about other peoples' perception of you your entire life, especially when spending this type of money.

I'll post pics when I can. It'll take another few days for delivery.

Very cool.i saw a Cayenne in Lava Orange and would have definitely recommended that but itís not an option for the Macan. Carmine Red is a very nice color but besides Lava, Chalk is probably my second favorite Porsche offers now.

Congrats and welcome to the club!

Beautiful collection.

I unfortunately find myself having less affection for BMW over time. Maybe Porsche is my new love.

Well, for me buying new is almost out of the question, but buying CPO is more attainable. I got nearly four years total warranty for both Porsches I purchased. The nice thing is the CPO warranty is two years and unlimited miles while other manufacturers are reducing the time or miles.

That's good to know. Most automakers just do 1 yr CPO warranty.

I've already narrowed down a Boxster/Cayman or M2 as my next car, likely CPO. My current daily was a used 2-yr lease trade in and the savings were massive.

This one was about $16k off sticker and only had 1700 miles on it:



My Macan Turbo was over $30k off sticker when I bout it but had 22k miles.

Beautiful that's almost exactly how I want it. Would prefer the tan/black interior but you can't be picky with the used market. Base or S?

I was set on getting our Macan in black, but when I saw it in person, it was just so boring.
I went safe, with white - wanted blue, but thought it would be too much, with my YMB M4

Base. Has plenty of power for us. You can tell the motor is underrated by 30-40hp. Just test drive one. You'll see what I mean. I drove an S and it didn't really "feel" faster, but did notice slightly less lag.

Black just looks right on Macan IMO.

I've driven both, was fine with the power of the base.
