Earlier this month we told you that Porsche posted record U.S. sales in March. But it is not just Americans who have driven the brand’s success. Their SUVs are popular around the world, so the Porsche Cayenne & Macan took a road trip in Thailand. In the mid 90’s Porsche only sold the 911 and the Boxster, and fancy projects like the Carrera GT had to be shelved because of limited profits from the two models.
But in 2002, the Cayenne sparked the luxury SUV market and transformed Porsche from a niche sports car company to a competitor on the world stage. An all-new Cayenne arrived this year, and our dealers can barely keep them in stock. The Macan arrived in 2014 with graceful styling and a thrifty V6, and it has been a success ever since. Even Mr. duPont had one as a daily driver for a few years. Needless to say, if you have not experienced either model you will not be disappointed.
