Saw these last week. Really doesn't show much but it looks like they will give it a slight refresh in 19 or 20. I am in the process of ordering a 2018 so the current look is more than fine for me
You're on your third Macan, right? This strategy makes sense for you and I would be concerned at all times if I flipped rides like that.The only thing which concerns me with the facelift is if it's released early . It basically would abbreviate the 18 model year (much like the 16) . The key in buying any of these at this point is to modest spec the car in case the next one is amazing . It gives the ability to get in and out and still have a great car . it just wont have too much extra fluff .
I have a feeling Porsche will really turn up the juice even more with future Macans . The car is Porsche's modern day nest egg . With thousands of them already on the road imagine the profit if despite a mild price increase everyone wants the new car . CPO prices will ramp up (as the new car costs more) , current owners trade in and out , and new shoppers come into the mix .
I would have been on my first had the trade in values not been so well in the beginning of this car . The second car was in an accident . I don't normally flip cars this fast but i do feel that it's very easy to like a revised Porsche . It's not just me . I have lost count of how many people looked at the revised car and fell for it enough to buy it . Most of the low mileage CPO cars were owned by those who traded in for a new one . It's usually the person who over specs his car or goes into a car over budget who is stuck but even he wants the car .. if its that great .You're on your third Macan, right? This strategy makes sense for you and I would be concerned at all times if I flipped rides like that.
You can always entrust Porsche to facelift/update, even bring in next gen cars in a long-term savvy, respectable, classy way so as to allow the new one to shine as a proudly subtle evolution with notable improvements, yet at the same time not diminish the previous one in any way, thus allowing it to age gracefully, timelessly and with dignity. For example: I actually think the pre facelift Cayenne GTS (by far the nicest Cayenne designation) is nicer than the facelift version (I like the more harmonious to the rest of the body, rounder/sporty organic front bumper and 911 style hoodlines), which is very subtly changed but in a way to let both appropriately shine.
The new Q5 silhouette and body looks exactly the same as previous model...quite disappointing wonder if they even bothered much with an all new frame and chassis.This is true with Audi and VW, too. Facelifts are evolutionary, not revolutionary. Even the new Audi Q5 is more evolutionary with the new body style coming out in a few months.
My thoughts exactly. I was actually holding off a couple of weeks and waiting for MY18 hoping Android Auto would be available. I had it on some cheap rental cars and found it very useful. Not there for MY18, will not wait for MY19 since to me a car is something I enjoy driving, it is not an electronic appliance that takes me from place to place.
