Default Just pulled the trigger on my first Porsche

Hey everyone. New to the board and my first post.

I just pulled the trigger yesterday on ordering my first ever Porsche. Super excited and can't wait for my build to come in.

Macan Base
White
Red/black leather interior
CF Steering wheel
sport chrono
porsche connect
black door handles
black roof rails.

Trading in my 2015 jeep wrangler jku xgames edition.

ETA is January 15th.

The clock will be moving slower than usual for the next 2.5 months =(

Looking forward to participating in these forums!

Thanks,
AJ

Congratulations! Welcome to the wait game - we ordered our Macan S in late September- so we should be taking delivery late December/early January. Our vehicle is expected to go into production this week. But misery loves company �� I too am a first time Porsche owner (my husband owned a Boxster before we were married) - and I have a 2008 SUV that does not have a lot of bells and whistles compared to any 2017 vehicle on the market.

I just stumbled on 2 Porsche apps - "good to know" and "delivery" - and both have great videos/fyis IMO on the many different features on the Macan. I feel like I will have a learning curve with having such an amazing performance vehicle - plus all the modern technology - so these apps are helpful I hope in reducing that curve and a good distraction while I wait this time out... so you may want to explore those apps too as a FYI.

2017 White Macan S aka "Bianka", 19" turbo wheels, center wheel colored caps, leather package-black/luxor beige interior, premium plus package, LED headlights with PDLS+, slide blades colored - white, roof rails and window trim in black, trailer hitch, Porsche connect, smokers package, lane change assist. PEC Atlanta Delivery on 12/21/16 #155. Very Merry Christmas to us!

Welcome to the family.

You should find that your Porsche will handle better than any suv you have driven.

It will probably be the first of many, whilst the base Macan is OK for a city car you will soon want more, if you are a spirited driver.

Welcome AJ! I'm new to Porsche ownership as well (or will be sometime in December!). It's already been a long week since placing my deposit, and I've read the entire owners manual!
