New (to me) Gen 1 Night Blue Macan GTS

Post by DonaldS » Thu Jan 16, 2020 7:40 pm

After selling my VG Macan nearly 2 years ago to fund the purchase of a GT Silver Cayman GTS (981) I have returned as the owner of a Night Blue Gen 1 Macan GTS. Would have been nice to keep the Cayman as well but unfortunately my pocket are only so deep!. The Macan GTS was supplied by Brooklands Porsche and dealing with the Sales Manager, Rob Newton, was a delight.

Looking through some of the recent post on this forum I suspect I may have just have bought the car previously owned by a forum member. If so I would like to thank Hitman999 for looking after the car so well, it looks and drives like new.

I suspect that the Macan GTS is going to cost a little more to run than the 2.0T Macan or the Cayman GTS both of which average 25-35 mpg during ownership. I would be interested to hear the typical fuel consumption other forum members achieve.

Congrats on the new car Donald, the GTS Macan is a special car. I averaged 21mpg over eighteen months in my Macan. My driving style and short journeys do seem to reward me with the worst of consumption figures so with a bit less of a lead foot you may get a few more.

Congrats DonaldS :) . Looks like you bought my old car.
Funny I wanted a forum member to have it and in a round about way a forum member has it. Enjoy! :)
I averaged 16 mpg in it :lol:
