The situation is the same globally as the compact SUV has been fully booked for 2014 across markets. Porsche India launched 2 Macan variants, Macan S Diesel at a price of Rs 1 crore and Macan Turbo petrol for Rs 1.11 crore, (ex-showroom Delhi). Macan Turbo goes from 0 to 100 in 4.8 seconds, and Macan S Diesel in 6.1 seconds.
The compact SUV is an all new terrain for Porsche and as has been seen globally, even in India, Macan helps increase company outreach to include new customer segments. While Porsche intends to invite new customers into its fold, exclusivity remains top priority, and not volumes.
As such, demand will outdo supply. Since the days of importing Porsche’s to it being sold here, there are about 2,000 Porsche vehicles on Indian roads.
Not surprisingly, women buyers have shown keen interest in Macan. Porsche 911 Targa, Boxster GTS and Cayman GTS launch will be scheduled within 6 months.
