This one is in remarkable shape, meaning that it's not sitting askew in the junk yard. The seller seems pretty honest in his description, and while this car isn't showroom fresh, it at least doesn't appear to have any major dingleberrys hanging off of it. The body – in innocuous gray – has suffered only modestly for its 76,000 mile life, while the interior issues begin with sport seats that look like a wormy dog has spent a month scooting up and down on them.

There’s a full-sized spare on a road wheel in the load area which is odd and obviously not something you’d be driving around with. Perhaps it’s the fifth of the 19-inch Turbo wheels that have been fitted to the car and the original spare still lives under the floor. … [Read more...] about At $37,000, Could This 2015 Porsche Twin-Turbo Crossover Have You Saying “Yes, We Macan?”
