    • Second generation Porsche Macan to be all-electric and drop internal combustion entirely

      Wow. Porsche sure seems to be in a hurry to get rid of its internal combustion motors. Assuming this report from AutoExpress is correct (and they get plenty wrong) the second generation Macan will only be available with an electric drivetrain.


      Why not give the consume the option Porsche? Not everyone is going to want a Macan they have to charge. W ell, the solution to this is to keep the first gen in production.

      Apparently the first generation Macan production will simply be stretched out while the electric joins it so that is a solution but it also marks the end of the internal combustion motor in the Macan.

      For a few years, the internal-combustion-engined Macan of today will be sold in parallel with the new fully electric car.
      The electric era is coming up fast.

        Absolutely no way they're dumping ICE from their biggest seller any time soon. Click bait auto express garbage.

        You ever tune yours? I'm thinking of messing around with my dad's for some data and an article.

        Nope, I have a friend that tuned his and there really isn't much left in the turbos at my altitude. I'm looking to trade it in once snowy season is over as the only have about 10 months of warranty left.
