LA Live – Porsche Macan world premieres!


Anjan Ravi,

I’m a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

The Porsche Macan world premiers at the 2013 LA Auto Show today. With the Macan, Porsche enters an all-new segment which is both, price and volume competitive. However, as the Cayenne has proved, there are plenty of takers for an SUV with a Porsche badge.
