Once again you guys based in the US miss a major section of the Porsche market an that is the rest of the world where SUVs and in particular the Macan are powered by diesel engines.
The diesel powered Macan has outsold all other variants by quite a ratio.
Hence at launch there was the SD, S and Turbo.
Since launch in addition to the changes mentioned there have been one significant change that is the new PCM and as you say the inclusion of items as standard that were once extras, (connect, mobile phone bluetooth, third heating/cooling controls etc).
What has changed is the range of models in the size range by more manufacturers, Jaguars FPace, Alfas Stelvio, the Mercs, Tesla etc these offer buyers more choice and will impact upon the Macan unless Porsche develop our beloved car in a correct manner.
The FPace is a different breed the market segment that it is aimed at family and not sporting drivers and what will be its most popular engine is a 2.0 diesel which just happens to be the most popular engine in the X3 and Q5.
Interesting times ahead especially since the spy shots we have all seen do not show any radical changes to the external appearance other than the Panamera bar on the rear.
