M2 vs Macan Turbo

Sounds kind of crazy but curious what people think since you can get a 2015 Turbo in the low $50k range.

Macan Turbo would be pretty sweet for a daily. Especially if you don't have any real hills/driving roads around you.

As much as I love my M2 and hate SUVs, it'd be hard to turn down a Porsche Turbo. Porsche is one of the few brands I don't mind SUVs as much.

If you haven’t driven a Macan GTS or Turbo especially with PASM and air suspension, you wouldn’t realize how sports car like it drives. But I understand the perspectives, which is why I posted. There are all kinds of crazy comparison posts in this section so figured why not lol.

I think it does look pretty sweet though. Kind of like a hot hatch on steroids:

I cute, slightly porky high center of gravity two door coupe that is indistinguishable as anything special to 99% of the population.

M2 by .4 sec. The Macan is a beast for sure. The M2 is described as "one of the very best sports cars sensible money can buy..."

Well it is a short track too. To be fair, a longer track would have created a wider disparity for the M2 to win by.
