A thoroughbred sports car to drive with the additional luxuries to ensure it can be driven daily, catering for all lifestyles whilst remaining stylish, environmentally responsible, ergonomic with high performance key to all aspects of the Macans design.   Peter showed guests video clips of the Macan in the design process, technical specification screens, the Macan in testing and on the road before members from Porsche Centre Sutton Coldfield pulled back the covers revealing to the eager crowd their first glimpse.
