T’is the season for gifting again, and we all know the best present you can ever gift is one that is to yourself. Just in case you’re running out of ideas on what to splurge on yourself, might we suggest this brand new, limited edition piece: the Porsche Macan SportDesign.

Porsche Macan SportDesign
The Porsche Macan SportDesign comes in two colour variants: metallic grey and white.

Launched recently, the Macan SportDesign is a sporty update to the existing Macan in terms of aesthetics. Also, here’s another fact that would further pique your interest: only 40 units of the Porsche Macan SportDesign are released in Malaysia.

But first, let’s look at the upgraded aesthetics. The limited edition series comes in two colours: Volcano Grey Metallic and Carrara White Metallic. The Macan SportDesign features a more dynamic front apron, painted side skirts, and rear apron which places a further emphasis on the sportiness. The SportDesign is also further identifiable with a new livery that features subtle silver and red accents, as well as black LED headlights.

The black and red leather interior emphasises boldly on sportiness.

Next, we move on to the interior. Both colour variants come with the sporty black-and-red leather interiors — the Garnet Red colour scheme is evident in the contrast stitching, seat belts, instrument cluster dials, and Sport Chrono stopwatch. The seats don’t just look good. It also comes fitted with a 14-way power-adjustable front seats with memory (so you can always get that sweet spot angle). Audiophiles will be happy to know that the car is fitted with a 14-speaker, 545-watts Bose surround sound system. From classical piano to a bass-booming EDM, any music is guaranteed to sound good inside the Porsche Macan SportDesign.

A stopwatch for you to time your destinations, perhaps?

In terms of engine specifics, the Macan SportDesign remains the same as its predecessor. Think 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 252 hp from 5,000 to 6,800 rpm and 370 Nm of torque between 1,600 and 4,500 rpm.

Essentially, all those numbers translate into one thing: Porsche really wants you to know that the SportDesign is actually sporty.
