I don't think its as much as a problem as it is a preferenceLOL.
Google "Porsche Macan pedal lag". You will get 152,000 search results about this problem and the medley of devices that address it.
Think about what a problem is. Like a financial problem. This is clearly something that needs to be dealt with before it becomes harmful.You have profoundly changed your position. It was "I do NOT have this problem", now it is a matter of "personal preference". Gotcha.
Now think about what a preference is. Alternatively, I too would prefer less lag when I press the gas pedal. This is a preference, but not a potentially harmful situation or discrepancy in the engineering.
152,000 searches of 'pedal lag' is not an admission of a problem (as much as you would like it to be) however, it is testament to an ongoing trend of people who clearly prefer less lag.
If you press the gas and your Macan goes nowhere, that would be a problem.
If I want my Macan GTS to go 1000 mph in two seconds, is that a problem even if 152,000 people on this forum want the same? Or is that an overwhelming preference?
