Exterior design Macan S

Porsche Macan S - Exterior design

Exterior design

The face alone of the new Macan lays bare the dominant sporty genes of its hereditary line. The characteristic headlights are integrated in the bonnet. The large, imposing air intakes of the front apron are just waiting to inhale life. Every single second.

The bonnet stretches through to the wheel arches. This lends the front a broad and powerful presence and reminds us of the legendary Porsche 917, which won countless victories in the early 1970s – including at 24 Hours of Le Mans, where it held the distance record for 39 years.

The side profile is typically Porsche. From this angle, every muscle appears flexed – like a predator ready to pounce. The roof line slopes distinctively down towards the rear, drawing the customary sports car contour that promises excellent aerodynamics. Our designers call it the Porsche flyline.

A visual highlight of the new Macan is the side blades. Not only do they set a sporty accent, their design pays homage to the 918 Spyder. They make the proportions of the doors appear narrower and the flanks seem much sleeker and sportier. Side blades are available with a Lava Black paint finish, in the exterior colour of the vehicle or – for a particularly exclusive statement – in carbon.

In sizes of up to 21 inches, the wheels of the Macan are equally eye-catching. The particular Macan model that you see before you is recognisable by its brake calipers: black on the Macan, silvercoloured on the S variants and red on the Turbo. Typically Porsche.

At the rear, the classic Porsche sports car design reveals itself: slender at the top, widening into broad shoulders above the rear wheels – a homage to the 911. The styling of the rear hatch gives the rear end a particularly harmonious look. For convenience, the rear hatch on all Macan models is equipped with an automatic powerlift function. The narrow LED taillights have three-dimensional proportions, which gives them an extraordinary appearance of depth – and captures your attention. The overall effect is to make the Macan look low, wide and thus intimate with the road – like any genuine Porsche. After all, a muscle-toned body is meant to be admired from the rear as well as the front.
