Recent indications from Porsche are the ICE Macan will be dropped in 2024, due to enviromental standards tightening in Europe.

See article Porsche Macan Gasoline Model Likely To Be Discontinued In 2024

I’d be intested to know what current Macan owners would consider with their next purcase, so thought I’ll start a poll

I would wait and drive the car . I think Tesla has the market cornered by the customer service and build quality are not refined. A neighbor just got a frozen blue metallic Taycan . I must say it looks impressive . I m open to at least see where Porsche takes this but I am not ready to spend big money on EV . It feel it will evolve as qulckly as an iPhone.

I bought my Macan S for keeps. I'm going to drive it until it dies, or car accident. Hopefully, the previous, I get leasing is very popular and people want to rent a car every 2-3 years to have the newest and shiniest vehicle on the road, but it never made sense for me unless you own a business and could claim a lease as a tax write off. Just my own opinion here.

Precisely. We've got all ICE cars now and the better half . . . a 959 veteran . . . is all of a sudden, following her friend buying a Tesla, talking Taycan or eTron.

I think the e cars are great but I am a luddite.

At this age . . . I keep thinking about doing some serious collecting of old, FUN, ICE cars . . .

But . . . I am going to try to keep any open mind. I am hoping the styling of the Taycan evolves . . . . we'll see.

Just want to point out, it wouldnt be an electric macan, it would be a whole different car.
I have an order for a 2022 macan gts. Im in no rush to switch over to electric.
If i was to buy an all electric today, id probably go with the ford mach-e.

I have owned mostly bimmers and VW/audi from my younger days. The macan will be my first porsche. I have probably one of the last amg glc v8s - not sure if they will return for my23/24.
When it comes to electric tho, its a whole different ball game. Im just going to wait and see how things go in the next decade or so.

Another aspect to this is ICE values.
Will people embrace EV as the latest and greatest and the resale value plummet or will they be chasing second hand ICE vehicles that are no longer available new.

Were horse and carts selling off cheap when the Model T arrived? :ROFLMAO: It will be interesting to see if the new technology will be embraced or just forced upon us.

I'm assuming they'll try to force our hands via gasoline taxes. California will lead the "charge"...

California already pumps out the highest state gas tax rate of 66.98 cents per gallon, Federal taxes add 18.3 cents per gallon.

These green savages want to add speed limit to autobahns. Can't wait anything good from them.

On the other hand, I was on a walk yesterday and passed tesla supercharger station where there were like 10 teslas, in 6 out of 10 there were people sitting inside. People just sit in the cars and charge them, ridiculous.

If this happens it will be sad.
Maybe Porsche thinks that the # of ICE Macans sold in a year will be the # of EV Macans sold when ICE no longer made....WRONG!

My MY2016 is running great & I hope to keep it for many years. If it was totaled in 2024 or after, I would probably buy a competitor's ICE SUV. If I did not like any of those, than a used 2023 Macan GTS.

Well, I've got a 2021 with 6 years of warranty coverage...so at minimum I'm 2027 before I even begin to think about a new Porsche, I imagine the landscape will be different by then so it's hard to speculate now.

No, CA is banning ICE via EO


Since it an EO, another gov can change it, So its on the voters in CA, Its not a law. CA voters will get exactly what they want. Its their choice but has no bearing on the other states.

Yes, but that's only new vehicle production, no? I was referring to deterring folks from using the old ones by taxing the fuel through the roof such that they become parade vehicles at best. Take a limited gasoline production USA, add an insane CA gas tax... You get the picture.

Yes, got the extra 24 month Porsche approved warranty to the tune of $3495. The dealer surprised me on day of delivery with the 3 year Porsche maintenance plan for free (something like $1800 actual price), so that was a nice bonus.

I am planning to keep my Macan for more than the standard 4 year warranty, so it just made sense to add a couple more years for peace of mind. Will make a judgement call when it gets close to 6 years whether it's time to trade in or hang on to it.

Wow that is a really nice bonus.

For my 22 which I already put a deposit on, I'm leaning towards purchasing the PAWE only and not the PSMP.

I wouldn't have bought the PSMP, it's no cheaper really...but free was free. The PAWE makes sense if you want to keep the vehicle longer, given the cost of a major issue like those in the past (transfer cases, timing cover leak, etc.) it would just take one to make it worth while.

I'll hang on to my Macan and look after it carefully for many years but I have to admit that current cars have lost a lot of the animal roar and snort that gave them so much of their appeal in years gone by.

Look in the engine bay, what do you see? A lump of plastic.

Sit in the car and what do you feel? Silky smooth, clinically delivered power.

Remove the engine at home to change the clutch? ha ha ha, no, but it was an easy day's work in a 356 series.

An EV will do away with the horrors of TC leaks etc and should be more reliable plus it has the potential, with multiple electric motors, to create superior power distribution to all 4 wheels. Lower unsprung weight? True off-road vehicle? [unlikely :) though possible]

There's light years between a carby fed engine and today's tech. ICE marvels but there's a much smaller step between today's tech ICE marvels and an EV.

Certainly with another ten years development I reckon EVs will be the way to go.
