MERRIAM, Kan., May 16, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Porsche took a major gamble when it broke away from its sports-car mold in 2002 with the introduction of the Cayenne SUV, the automaker's first non-car based vehicle offering. It was a gamble that die-hard sports car fans shunned at, but the general public accepted with open arms as Porsche introduced the first-ever SUV focused on true driving performance. As it stands now, the Cayenne SUV is the best-selling vehicle in the Porsche lineup. In hopes for lightening to strike twice, the introduction of another SUV-based Porsche, the highly anticipated Porsche Macan, looks to make its debut in style at one Kansas City-area dealership, Aristocrat Porsche.

The Macan is an all-new compact crossover sports utility vehicle from Porsche. With five doors, five seats and plenty of room for cargo, the Macan is slightly smaller and sits lower to the ground than Porsche's first SUV, the Cayenne. Despite the compact size of the new Macan, this SUV promises to deliver on every level Porsche vehicles are expected to in terms of performance. Standard is a V-6 engine that outputs 40 more horsepower than the very ambitious 300 horsepower base-level Cayenne. In addition, this SUV also has the option to be upgraded to a Turbo model that reaches the 400 horsepower mark, where the sprint from 0-60 mph takes a brisk 4.6 seconds. Like all Porsche vehicles, interior luxury and uncompromising handling abilities come with the Macan as the compact crossover SUV is a standard all-wheel drive vehicle.

A great deal of interest about this vehicle has flooded one Kansas City-area dealership, Aristocrat Porsche. In anticipation to the upcoming arrival of the all-new Macan, Aristocrat Porsche will be hosting an exclusive launch event for interested shoppers to get a sneak peek at the exciting new Porsche model. On Thursday, June 5, 2014 from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., the Aristocrat Porsche showroom will go from one of the Midwest's premier Porsche dealerships to an oasis for luxury performance vehicle enthusiasts residing in the greater Kansas City Metropolitan area. This event is free to the public; however, Aristocrat Porsche requires a pre-registration for all interested parties.
