Hello everyone, I'm so excited and just made my deposit for the 2021 Macan GTS in Mambo Green. I took the last allocation at my dealership for the GTS for a September build and either November/December 2020 arrival. I must of ticked every single option on the configurator.

Here is my build code: The Porsche Code

Kind Regards,
Darren

Just a thought when I researched my build was told the glass upgrade causes issues with Cell Phone reception. And the phone box you paid $1500 for does
not work very well.

Yes the Thermally & Noise Insulated Glass can diminish cell phone reception (and radar detection), but the Smartphone Compartment with Wireless Charging option for $690 also includes a cell phone antenna booster when your phone in placed in the designated area in the center console.

@gadgetman very nice build you got there! Now you have given me some new ideas for my build. I also have a deposit down for a 2021 GTS build in September for Mamba Green, but I am waiting to see this color in the wild at the dealer before I fully commit to the color.

You have given me food for thought with changing up the color of leather on the inside. Right now I have the leather interior in black with the deviated stitching in the Mamba Green. I wonder how the agate gray would look with the green stitching. I love how you are matching your seatbelts in the gray as well.

Thank you @wspollack for tagging me so I can see this beautiful build. Its a good thing I have time before my build locks to keep making changes. The middle of July will not come fast enough for the dealer where I am ordering this car from will get their Mamba Green in for me to see.

@Jellybean, With the color Mamba Green I thought it was weird however, when I saw the color in person at a dealership in Scottsdale, AZ it "Wow'd" me. Also Nick Murray's Macan S in Mamba Green (
) convinced me to select this color. Originally, I wanted Carmine Red as Red is my favorite color.

In regards to the interior, I wanted full black leather. Then I decided to get a more contrasting interior. I liked how the Agate Grey/Pebble Grey compliment each other. Also, did you see how the steering wheel is also Agate Grey matching the dash color. To top it off, the matching Agate Grey for the seat belts. If Porsche had an option for Mamba Green seat belts, I may have gone for that.... Maybe not. lol I hope that the Pebble Grey seats wont get too dirty from jeans of children.

Congratulations on your build! Spending lots of hours on the configuration is fun.

I didn't get the upgraded Burnmeister system because most of the time I listen to talk radio and occassionally, listening to Pandora.

Very nice! I considered Mamba Green with body coloured wheels for a short time but SWIMBO pointed out I’m too old for that colour. (She is right, of course, but I didnt know you could be too old for a colour!).

QUESTION : My SA told me a few weeks back that agate is not available. Expresso too. He was not sure when it would be available again. Had to cancel my 2020 GTS order. Have you had any feedback from your SA about this at all? I’ve posted this a few times on the forum but to date no feedback one way or the other.

@RJE , I haven't heard nor my SA mentioned any delays due to a shortage of Agate or Expresso. I will email him and see what he says.

I think the black with green stitching will look great with the Mamba Green. I have seen several Mamba Green Macans in my area and they definitely catch your eye. I like the color. Congratulations and before you know it you will be picking it up.

This is mine. Macan S in the same exterior/interior color of yours. Looks amazing.

I don't know your age but I'm 72 and have a Mamba Green on order for November delivery. I ordered it with Beige but will probably change it to Espresso before the build locks mid-August. Haven't been told anything about it's availability.

Mamba green will anchor your model date for sure. It is a wonderful color but perhaps not as long time classy as the expensive chalk. For that you got to pay a big premium. And how did we get to the place we have to spend more time on color than on speed?

FYI - I have the thermal / noise insulated glass on my 2018 Macan and have zero problems with cell phone reception. I just make a call, connect to the PCM through Bluetooth and lay the phone on the passenger seat while the call is going. Never had a connection problem.

@Jellybean i think I’d stick with your black with contrasting stitching. I think that works incredibly well with Mamba and with the GTS in general. A very bespoke look and with the green, it isn’t TOO subtle but IMHO a perfect accent.

All seems good now. Expresso and agate are back on the menu. My build (with agate) locks pretty soon too.

I keep telling my 39 year old daughter that I’m 19. Im sensing she doesn’t believe me.
