Cayenne was Porsche’s inaugural foray into the segment of luxury SUV cars and inspired by the success of the Cayenne, Porsche launched the Macan soon after in 2015 with an effort to capitalize on the highly profitable consumer automobile segment and join the SUV bandwagon. Having been introduced almost 3 years ago, it is quite likely that the brand is looking forward to revamping 2019 Porsche Macan (GTS, Turbo) models.
It is noteworthy to mention that in comparison to two of its flagship cars by the same automobile marquee, 911 & Cayenne, the Macan outsold both in the year of its launch to surpass forecasted sales by a huge margin. Thus it is only likely to expect the car to have reached a saturation point in its life cycle and the makers are looking forward to making it undergo a major upheaval to appeal to the consumer market which is growing by leaps and bounds.
