From the car maker that makes the iconic 911, it would seem ironical that the Macan is currently Porsche’s best-selling model.
Porsche revealed that their Macan sold the maximum units within their portfolio in 2015, with more than 80,000 cars rolling out of showrooms around the world. And who made it to the second place? None other than the Cayenne, which sold 73,100 units. Thanks to the combined sales of both these cars, Porsche for the first time in the company’s history, was able to register a sales figure of more than 200,000 cars in 2015.
So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Porsche wants a bigger piece of the pie, and a sub-Macan crossover would make perfect sense. Reports state that this crossover could be called the ‘Majun’, and is currently under development at Porsche. There are speculations that this model could share a lot of engineering with an electric VW crossover or Audi’s Q4 (delayed by dieselgate).
There’s no doubt that the sub-Macan crossover project will take some time to materialise if given the green signal, as Porsche is already working on a lot of cars at the moment. These include the all-new Cayenne, the Mission E concept, a facelifted 911 GT3, and Panamera’s wagon and coupe versions.
