I Had a 17’ Macan S sapphire blue 52k one owner that was stolen and totaled in a police chase.

What Macan should I replace it with?

Budget is insurance payout TBD, likely around market value of an S with 52k miles.

Should I look for another S with similar mileage or a GTS/Turbo?

My Macan was purchased from a friend, he did all the right maintenance, car was in great shape, a bit concerned with buying a used unknown Macan given the issues the cars are prone to having.

Thanks, wasn’t planning on entering the Macan market so soon. I just got my S exactly how I wanted, paint correction H&R springs and flat 6 Motorsport spacers. On the bright side maybe I can swing a bigger motor in a turbo if I find the right car/deal.

Sorry for your loss. We assume garages are safe, especially those garages attached to our houses. I can’t remember the number of times that I had been looking for the key fob to one of my three vehicles only to find them in the vehicle where I had forgotten to remove them. Your loss has emphasized the fact the we need to store ALL our key-fobs inside the house, preferably close to some type of firearm.

Thanks. I feel lucky that I decided to drive the 996 gt3 the night before and brought the keys inside. Losing that car would have been devastating.

Sheesh. That's horrible. Hope both are replaced to your satisfaction in short order.

Sadly, there's been a rash of garage robberies, many hot-prowl, here in the greater SF Bay Area of late. They use drills or even blow torches to create holes in garage doors, so they can reach in with a coat hanger/wire hook and pull the automatic/safety release.

Back in the old days we could just take distributor rotor with us when we went to dinner. No one was going no where with that car.
