Saw this Orange Macan GTS today. It was an 18 and has 23k and he paid 60k. It looked amazing. Supposedly only 2 exist in the US.

Looked into buying a GTS, that's the way I'd go if you are sold on this model of the platform.
I wound up buying a Q5 TDI as my daily as I'd be racking up lots of hay miles. Had the good fortune of picking one up for 22.5k 40k on it. And 37 might. Have 120k on it in 2 years. I did love the handling of the GTS, but the math convinced me

I've had both a Q5 and Macan GTS and IMHO there is no comparison. GTS is laid out so much better, has better seats, more features, is faster (my Q5 was not a TDI), has MUCH better and more intuitive instrumentation, and looks a hell of a lot better. I never drove the GTS in winter but I will say that Quattros have always been great in inclement weather.

Does anyone here actually have a base level Macan with the 4-cyl 2.0L Turbo and will offer their opinion on driving and ownership? I'm curious what owner's think since the Macan is Porche's best selling car.

With 250 hp in the 4-cyl it should be fine as a daily driver / commuting car. Expensive choice, but nevertheless fine for a DD. I get that participating in a BBS like 914World means you are probably a car enthusiast and will likely choose the increased performance offered in a higher trim level. The next step up in the S gives a noticeable bump of 90 hp.

Again, curious what owners think about their base level Macans.

Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving.
