I don't know why it took Porsche over a decade to introduce a second SUV. After all, the company's financial fortune has been inextricably linked to the Porsche Cayenne since it first debuted as a 2003 model, with sales of the five-passenger 'ute eclipsing that of all other Porsche offerings and making possible expensive supercar projects like the Carrera GT and the Porsche 918 Spyder. One would have though that a second, smaller SUV would mark the natural progression of Porsche, both fiscally and product-wise, into a more well-rounded automaker.
Regardless of the reasons for the delay, the 2015 Porsche Macan S (and its Turbo sibling) is now here - and it's quite good. So good, in fact, that if you really care about driving, but have also convinced yourself that your lifestyle demands an SUV, then you should take a long, hard look at the Macan. And then probably buy one.
