The first year road tax is an extra £2,245 for most models. Some sneak in at the slightly lower £1,910. This plus the DVLA registration fee (£55) is added onto whatever the confuserator quotes.
Current - 2020 95B.2 Macan GTS
All previous - 2018 95B.1 Macan GTS, Audi S3, Lotus Elise S2, Lotus Elan S2, Honda CRX VTEC, Ford XR2

Neither of those appear in the configurator. If you are getting finance you should also consider GAP Insurance. This is defiantly worth taking out else you could end up with a nasty bill of your car is written-off or stolen. I think that was about £650 if I remember correctly and lasts for 3 years.
You can get GAP insurance quite a bit cheaper than from the dealers. I used ALA for my last new car purchase (Discovery 5) which was roughly the same value as the Macan and it was about £350 for 3 years.

I used this discount code when I bought my GAP insurance from ALA:-

Use this MSE ALA Gap Insurance link and get 25% off the standard price, when you use code MSE25. The discount code is available as long as you buy by 31 Dec 2023.

Yep. All cars over £40,000 cop this extra tax plus increased Road Fund Licence for the first 5 years.. It’s nothing to do with Porsche you can blame George Osborne.. remember him!!

so how is mine showing as £1,910? Is it some kind of thing individual dealers do as an incentive, and they pay the difference?

I have absolutely no idea. Assumed all Porsche dealers would charge the same. Mines £2,245. They did say it went up recently but that could just be the RFL part of it.
