Says the man running a 992S :thumbs:

I was in the market for the Macan turbo but a guy up the road just turned up with a new one. I live in a small town where everyone talks (you know the score) just thought nope, and went with the X3M. Something a bit different

It’s is because of the 992 that I could not afford the turbo Macan ! 😂

Yes very much know the small town thing, not helped that I have almost matching private plates on my cars and our office is on the main road in to our town with the cars nicely parked clearly outside the office when my wife’s comes in to see me

The new Macan is lovely. The inside is deffo 100% upto date now. Still a cracking engine in the "S", so much so the turbo has adopted the same engine just with more power

Are the same engines? I think S has the 3.0 out of the S4 etc and the Turbo has the 2.9 out of the RS4.
