My goodness me this new GTS is expensive. £65,000 before OTR/options means most will be paying near enough £80,000. And £90,000 for the Turbo when that comes. And for that you get a less functional interior and a bit more power.

I’m glad I snapped up a 2021 build earlier this year lol. And I’m with the others on the front-end design of the new GTS. It looks a bit lumpy and too fussy - kind of like the tacky aftermarket jobs you see on Range Rovers.
Unlikely many potential GTS customers will be put of by the new bumper... Me included.

There is no new Turbo - this Gen 3 GTS is in effect the new Turbo ...
I wouldn't rule out a 500bhp Turbo as the Macan ICE swansong in a year or so.

Yep to that. And why not as it will sell well being the last of it's kind before the sparks arrive...

There won't be a Macan III Turbo. Porsche has said so. I suspect the Turbo badge will next appear on the Macan Electric. This would make sense as it allows Porsche to introduce a new top-of-the-range Macan Electric Turbo while still selling the Macan III cars. At launch, this will position the Macan Electric model above the existing Macan III models. Porsche will of course introduce lesser models, but there's a good chance these will not be available at launch (as per how the Taycan was introduced).
Current - 2020 95B.2 Macan GTS

Have to admit I'm not amused at this facelift being so quick after the previous one. I ordered the Macan II GTS as soon as it was announced, and took delivery May last year. Only one year later, this is an outdated model. :o I also bought this on the expectation that was the last ICE Macan GTS before the all-new electric model.

Same here I bought my Turbo (due next month) thinking it was the last ICE but I'm sure I heard in a few interviews that an ICE version (maybe just one model) will sit alongside the EV for a while (but all speculation). Now I get a double whammy of Turbo dropped, GTS upped and ICE possibly going beyond 2023 :roll:

Docusigned the following earlier. What do you think? Just an aside the exterior apron/mirror/side blades option says in exterior colour but it's just some of the Matt finish will be in Gloss which I prefer especially around the bumper. Even my OPC said it wasn't correct wording. Come on Porsche stay awake. Lol!!
