It might be just a speculation. I read about it in the comments of

I like the car a lot. I've seen it in person at the L.A. Auto Show this week. The only thing I don't get is why Porsche doesn't offer all the options right at the start. Sport exhaust, PDCC, the Sapphire blue color,several interior options, etc. are only available from october 2014! This is a major disappointment, since I was in the market for one to replace my Q5 business car. Now I will probably go back to another Audi.
Missed oppertunity for Porsche IMHO...

Gotta love commenters like that. Oh this car could have been super awesome, but now it's only kinda awesome, so I'm going to a different brand entirely! Everyone, look at me, I'm turning my back on this brand! *flare*

No PDCC for the Macan.

I thought that that was the purpose of having air suspension and/or PASM.. i.e. to stiffen the suspension on inside wheels during cornering in order to reduce body lean...
It is one of the selling points of AS but it is hardly the only purpose.

Standard: steel springs
Add PASM: more control over comfort/performance
Change steels to AS: allow PASM to work over a broader range of comfort/performance
Add PDCC to AS: allow AS to do tricks like level cornering

There are many levels of upgrades. Just because we miss out on PDCC doesn't mean the AS is useless.

Exactly, now he's going back to an Audi, which doesn't have any of the things he mentioned either.

Its been discussed on this forum that when you see a date like 10\2014 the 10 references week 10 of 52 not October... Have fun with your Audi ;-)

Yeah, regarding that, I don't think it makes sense. Because 4/2014 and 10/2014 are very close together if they are week numbers and both dates are before the first cars even ship. Makes much more sense that it's April and October. But on the other hand, the ship date my dealer gave me was a week number, so who knows...

Porsche is probably not offering a PDCC option on Macan since its not as top heavy gas the Cayenne and they probably figured that Macan didn't need the additional off road articulation it provides.

Well, it turns out it's just speculation that it will be available - no source could be provided:

I'm not 100% sure about the PDCC yet. Nothing announced by Porsche so far. There are a lot of rumors, but untill it is confirmed we really know not much...
There will be new options available at week 10/2014 (not month 10). The options that are 100% sure are:
- Sapphire blue metallic and Impulse red metallic exterior colors
- Black/Tan and Agate/Pebble grey interiors
- Sport exhaust tips in black and silver (tips only, no complete system)

I guess that some interior leather options will become avbailable too (like Cayenne), but there';s no confirmation yet.

Just wait and see. Can't even find any resources from the NetCarShow or anything for PDCC on Macan.

If air suspension is a must, means initial cost involvement to get air suspension and regular car service is a MUST to prevent more cost involvement of repairing it.:(

Who cares about your deposit?? Suzanne Feyens isn't getting one, we all need to forfeit our deposits :(

PTM and PSM are the standard safety/traction features found on every new car. PASM is adjustable dampers found on many sports cars and PTV+ has been done on many cars before too.

Air suspension is really the only 'special' one here, and is a prerequisite for PDCC but everything (including PDCC) adds features, nothing has to be replaced or sacrificed.

Question.
When do we need PTV+ for daily drive?
If PDCC available as option, which are more important? Air suspension? PDCC? PTV+? I am not good on this. Sorry I just drive. No wonder there are more buttons than any cars. But I still love Macan. :)
