  1. If this pinned comment gets 1000 likes, I won't leave the channel πŸ™‚ -Rory

  2. U holding the steering wheel like that, i cant trust you 😊

  3. Great review .. can you ask Porsche to get massage seats as an option for the macan .. then would be the ultimate luxury decent sized suv

  4. Hey…I watch this channel because Rory is the best. She is good, but I can't say I will stay tuned without him.

  5. πŸ‘½

  6. I own a 22MY Macan S and a couple of days ago borrowed a GTS for half a day from my local Porsche dealership and I must say the experience was not entirely what i expected. I was initially surprised by how little difference there appeared to be in performance between the S and the GTS, but after a couple of hours I realised that , like everything else Porsche, the difference was not so much night and day as it was subtle changes here and there to the suspension and the gearbox, that all add up to a different experience. I handed the keys back to the dealer with full intention of going back in a few month and ordering a GTS to replace my S when the lease expires. But then I got back in my S and, wow, what a difference. The S felt like a luxury cruiser. It was quiet and refined and soaked up the bumps. Its still blisteringly fast but without feeling the need to be shouty about it. What driving the GTS made me realise is that in the real world, the one with pot holes, citreon picasso's and horse boxes, the GTS is just too much to live with as a daily driver. It shouts and snorts, rumbles along on its low profile tyres and crashes over every pot hole and, in the real world, will not get you anywhere any quicker than the S, but it will get you there feeling a lot less relaxed. And unless you are a Porsche nerd, you are never going to be able to tell the difference in looks. So save yourself a lot of money and buy a nicely specced Maccan S and enjoy performance and build quality without all that unnecessary shouting. To quote the bard, the GTS is "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing"

  7. Personally I think these 2 work really well together, one of the most enjoyable car videos I’ve watched in ages

  8. Right when she stepped on i was like passsss. πŸ˜‚

  9. Macan is a bad car to buy. Not a reliable car. Lot of problems. if you like to see a car in the shop all the time this is the best to buy. Very expensive to repair thought. The people who review never will know what the issues are.

  10. Wow… that made me throw up in the back of my mouth. Worst video of the year.

    0-100 in 4.3 isn't that impressive for a car of this calibre. Both the GLC 63 S and X3 M can achieve under 4 seconds, why can't Porsche with its famous PDK? Even a new M340i can do under 4 seconds. The range topping Macan is comparable to the 43 and M40i level of performance, whereas it should be competing with the 63 and full M level cars. Yes I'm aware it handles better than both the GLC and X3, but point still stands.

  12. I enjoy Rorys' reviews. Alexandre was very good too. But PLEASE can we just leave it there. Two excellent reviewers, long may they continue, but stop with this box ticking. The only box either of them need to tick is… are they good at their jobs. The answer is yes. Black/female… nobody should care

  13. Is there still no android auto on the latest models?

  14. Alex & Rory are the best couple. I like to see both of them. But as reviewers Rory is unbeatable. Hopefully both are husband and wife.

  15. Alex is a wonderful presenter! Rory is for the enthusiasts but Alex is lovely to watch and listen to. Coin toss for me.

  16. Their banter reminds me of Forza Horizon cutscenes

  17. Fuck sake πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ

    No issue with her, but it's Rory I click for

  18. How many fake laughs can you cram into a review? Cringe.

  19. Great video

  20. Ride is crap for an suv, seats uncomfortable and so are door armrests. Driver assistant tech is poor. That’s my 30 minutes in it. You people from Uk never tell the really story about a Porsche. She almost told the truth about the ride, but then said it was good in the comfort settings, which it is not.

  21. Any diesel version?

  22. audio is very low sir

  23. Alex is a refreshing new presenter

  24. Wait, are retiring from the channel, Rory?!

  25. Rory please
