I am a new to the Porsche family, my very first Porsche vehicle is a 2019 Macan S which I just picked up this past Saturday.
It was during my middle-school years that I saw my friend's uncles 928 - it was love at first sight with the Porsche brand. Whenever we got together and if the car was parked outside, I would pause a few moments to admire its beautiful lines - sure it wasn't a 911 but nevertheless I was completely awestruck by its grandeur pearl white silouhette and tan interior. I love how life has come a full circle.
2019 Macan S:
Here's my build - as you can see it's not heavily optioned, I went with what made sense to me.
- Exterior Color:
Sapphire Blue Metallic
- Interior Color:
Standard Interior in Black
Premium Package Plus (Porsche Entry & Drive, Panoramic Roof System, LED Headlights incl. Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+), Auto-Dimming Mirrors, Power Seats (14-way) with Memory Package, Seat Heating (Front and Rear), Seat Ventilation (Front), BOSE Surround Sound System, Apple CarPlay incl. Siri)
7-Speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM)
19" Macan Design Wheels
- Wheel Accessories:
Wheel Center Caps with Colored Porsche Crest
- Comfort and Assistance Systems:
Lane Change Assist (LCA)
Sunblind for Rear Side Windows, Smoking Package, Cargo Management System
I was considering the following: Ionizer, Park-assist with Surround View, ACC - however it wasn't a must have while keeping $ down. As much as the smoking package gives the console a nice clean look - if I were to do it again, I would exclude it as I would be able to fit my iphone in there diagonally and/or a place to keep the keys.
I live in Dallas, TX and through this forum I received a referral from
: Chad Pierce at Porsche Atlanta Perimeter. Since Day 1, Chad has been phenomenal to deal with - highly knowledgeable, transparent, respectful, professional and proactive. No matter how many questions I had, Chad addressed each one of them with promptness. He is genuine, sincere and it's quite evident that he truly values and cares for his clients. He provided me with a great discount and after a couple of conversations, I finalized my build and placed the order on April 2nd with the vehicle ETA of June end.
On Friday June 7, the vehicle was delivered to the dealership and I flew to Atlanta on Saturday to take delivery. Unfortunately, I had a 7 hour flight delay however Chad was quite accommodating which resulted in a very smooth delivery process. He educated me on every feature of the vehicle and conducted a detailed walked through of all the vehicle settings so we could configure it to suit my needs before I left. He even stayed well beyond the dealership business hours to make sure I didn't leave until I was 100% satisfied. During my late night drive back to Dallas, he even reached out a couple of times to ensure I was safe!
Brian Westbrook was my finance manager - another extremely helpful associate who handled my paperwork with ease - adding to the positive experience!
Thanks to Chad and his team at Porsche Atlanta Perimeter, my very first Porsche buying experience has been a fantastic one. Hands-down, Chad is the best sales person I've ever dealt and from here on my go-to person for any future purchases.
Lastly, I want to thank the CarGuy07 and all the forum members here for your insights and advice! I've learned so much through these forum posts!
