At first glance, the 2016 Porsche Macan would seem to be an odd man out in the Porsche lineup. After all, for decades the company has been synonymous with high-performance turbocharged sports cars like the legendary 911 Porsche. However, looking at the company’s recent history — especially after the introduction of the Cayenne SUV and the luxurious Panamera — it becomes clear that the Macan crossover fits right in.

What’s even more impressive is that at a time when buying a crossover means sacrificing amenities and performance, the Macan is as uncompromising as anything else Porsche has built. Even the base model’s I4 turbo puts out a respectable 234 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. You can push it to 139 miles per hour (not that we’d ever suggest you do such a thing). By the time you get to the flagship Macan Turbo, which is outfitted with a 3.6L twin-turbo V6 that puts out 395 horsepower, you’re looking at a 165 MPH top speed.

In other words, this isn’t your dad’s crossover. Far from the anemic performance and cookie-cutter design of so many other CUVs, the Porsche Macan boasts everything that comes to mind when you hear the phrase “German engineering,” and combines it with the kind of thoughtful design and amenities that makes a Porsche fit like a well-tailored bespoke suit.

While you can stroll into a Porsche dealership and buy a car off the lot (or get a Porsche lease, if that’s a better option), at Porsche of Nashua we pride ourselves on an immersive experience. That means going beyond the test drive and sitting down with you to customize not only your Porsche Macan but the entirety of your Porsche driving experience. We’ll make sure the Porsche you get is truly yours, from the sound system down to the accents.
