sgCarMart – Porsche has a deep and long association with sports cars. The 911 is heralded as an icon - not just in its field but for the automotive industry as a whole. And no one knew exactly how it was able to withstand the test of time.
Then, Porsche started making cars that are more practical and with the family in mind. Naturally, there were raised brows and puzzled faces. But with chart-topping sales of the Panamera four-door GT and the Cayenne SUV, the marque proved that there are still many buyers who want a piece of Stuttgart's engineering.
In terms of sales figures, these models have even overtaken the 911s, testifying for Porsche's business acumen to penetrate the mass markets.
Now under the Volkswagen Group, it isn't surprising to know that Porsche has made clever use of its family ties. Like the Cayenne (which is built on the same architecture as the Volkswagen Touareg), the Macan shares its base with the Audi Q5.
Do not, however, be mistaken that the Q5 and Macan are cross-badged twins. There are real differences between them.
