What do you want to know?

I’m about to drive the all new and fully electric 2025 Porsche Macan 4 and Macan Turbo. The automaker is completely re-equipping its most popular car for the second generation. Gone are the combustion engines and PDK gearboxes. Instead, there are powerful electric motors. Before I drive these cars through the south of France on very little sleep, I want to know what you want to know about them.

What questions keep you up at night about Porsche’s latest compact crossover? Do you want to know why Porsche opted for this new fully electric model? What about if it performs as well as its predecessor? I bet you’re dying to know if it can justify its new, very high price tag. All of these things and more are questions I can (probably answer).

Anyway, let’s get a few basic things out of the way first. I drive two cars here in France: the Macan 4 and the Macan Turbo (yes, Porsche is sticking with the Turbo nameplate on its electric cars, get over it.) The Macan 4 starts at $78,800, and gives you 382 hp on (402 using launch control) and 479 lb-ft of torque via two motors with juice supplied by a 100 kWh battery. If that’s somehow not enough for you, feel free to step up to the Macan Turbo. This bad boy starts at $105,300, but you get 576 hp (630 using launch control) and an eye-watering 833 lb-ft of torque with power from a 100 kWh battery. The Macan 4 and Macan Turbo accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.9 and 3.1 seconds respectively. She will certainly succeed. Porsche has not yet released serial numbers for either car, but some tests have already been conducted.

Let’s talk about the price for a moment. It’s quite high, I admit. In fact, the cheapest Macan is now only $400 cheaper than a base model Cayenne, but there’s probably a good reason for that. First of all, electric motors and batteries aren’t cheap, so it was never going to be as affordable as the previous car and its small, VW-sourced four-cylinder (which started at $62,550). Secondly, you get a lot more as standard on the new cars. I’m talking about things like air suspension with PSAM, 20-inch wheels, a panoramic space, lane change assistant, lane keep assistant and adaptive cruise control. That’s all now standard on the Macan 4.

The Macan Turbo gets even more, such as Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus, surround view cameras, a Bose audio system, sports seats and a carbon fiber interior package. So you pay more, but you also get more. We don’t know at the moment whether there will ever be a cheaper Macan, but I will try to find out for you.

You can also add options that were never available on the previous Macan, such as a heads-up display, a passenger screen and rear axle steering. Neat!

Anyway, why don’t you all come down below and let me know what you want to know about the all-new 2025 Porsche Macan 4 and Macan Turbo?
