Hi - just heard today our build slot allocated for our Turbo order for September. I was really thinking it would be 2025 when I saw the Turbo vs Non-Turbo reported allocations.

But spec will lock in a few weeks and then ETA to dealer of 11th October...

I've been back and forth on configurator but think this is my final spec!

Any suggestions appreciated.

Currently have a Macan S in Crayon.

thanks

Each to their own, but Black wheels on Black paint looks crap. Not helped by all the external trims being Black also. Think it's look very bland and ... Black.

But if that's the colour combo that works for you, then that's all that matters.

Nice car but will definitely blend into the rest of the car park 😂
Obviously driving a bright yellow car and my wife driving a bright orange one, black would not be high on my list for a £104k Porsche.
Having said that, I think it would look better with a light interior, but then hey it’s not my money it’s yours, so go for what you think looks good 👍

Awwwww decisions decisions.

I mean I’ve seen Jet Black Taycans with satin black wheels which I liked.

But also in back of my mind was thinking it was a bit too much… probably why I posted on here.

Maybe the 22” with carbon aero blades to mix it up a bit.

I did stick with red callipers 🤣

Perhaps some red stitching against the black leather??
Don’t even know if that’s an option but would look very nice with subtle red accents on the car like the calipers.
It will be a great car whatever you decide 👍

Suggestions, to help offset the inevitable depreciation, rent out as a hearse, sorry you did ask!

Are you OCD in regard to how your car looks?

If you are then “black on black” = constantly looking grubby and requiring cleaning.

I bitterly regret including Met Black paint on my ICE Turbo, it looks great when I have cleaned it and no matter how short the journey by the time I get back home it looks grubby again.

So yeah, pick a different colour.

Incredible spec - looks great.

The black on black look never does well here - but it's hard to go wrong with it imo - looks great.

I wouldn't discount volcano grey - my GTS is volcano grey and it often looks dark enough to be mistaken for black. But it's just got enough grey in it that it looks cleaner for longer.

Wow £104K Macan! Is there any First year tax to add to that or is that still free at the moment?

Dread to think what the monthly PCP instalment is - What GFV are they giving the Turo Macan ATM?

At least the black hides the ugly shape

You’ve chosen an upgraded style of wheel and then completely lost the style and size by painting them black !

You’ve missed out the tinted front lights to make it even blacker.

Not surprised you are getting it so quick, barely anybody else is mad enough to buy one !

Other than that, welcome !
