I assume you mean for the Gen 3 Macan?

First demo cars have landed but are waiting September registration.

Proper launch event hasn't happened yet.

Yep. Apart from your own individual assessment which motoring journalist/publication would you take most notice of? Assume it won't be Gez Clarkson as he hates all Porsches 😂

Yes.... I waited patiently for a Sunday Times Clarkson Macan review but for some reason he really does not like Porsche. Perhaps Porsche are reluctant to give him cars.

I actually quite like Clarkson apart from that :oops: :oops: :oops:

I agree, his time on Top Gear were some of the most entertaining motoring articles I've seen and no doubt influenced 000's of people. However, watching him on Millionaire I just see a grumpy old git.

Clarkson’s Farm, however, is absolutely fantastic. Best thing he’s done since Top Gear.

Think we may have gone of topic a bit though.
