Default My First Porsche!

Hi everyone,

I became a proud owner of a 2017 Macan S at the end of December. It was a birthday (a.k.a. mid-life crisis) present to myself. Found an "executive" demo from Porsche NA at my dealer. Based on the previous destinations logged in the nav system, it came all the way to the Washington DC area from Los Angeles. Had 777 miles when I sealed the deal.

The color is Sapphire Blue Metallic, so I named her "MyStiq" for the X-Men character (plus it's "MyS", get it ).

No Sport Chrono but it came with the other 3 performance options: PASM, PTV+, and PSE. And maybe I'll add the Sport Plus retrofit when it's available for 2017 models.

It also had a clear bra already installed on the entire hood, which I thought was pretty cool.

Came over from a 2008 Infiniti EX35 and I'm surprised at how much more comfortable the Macan is in daily driving.

Hopefully soon, I'll be able to take some pics to share.

Been a lurker on the boards for a while to gather information on my purchase. Thanks to all who've posted on threads I reviewed. The info was very helpful.

Welcome to the mid-life crisis! The old saying is true, "Too bad youth is wasted on the young."


All the best!

Congratulations!

I just ordered my Macan S yesterday. Though I did have a Porsche for a few years in my younger days. I had a 914 that I bought new back in 1976. So I guess its taken me a few years to circle back to Porsche.
Safe and fun travels in your new Macan!
