Prior Design PD600M Porsche Macan Turns Blue

The hype surrounding the Macan has died down, but that doesn't mean it's not a best seller for Porsche. The Cayenne's young brother knows how to get noticed in a parking lot, but sometimes it requires a little help from a tuning company.

Prior Design is one of the few that put together a complex widebody kit for the Macan. However, only a few customers have had the stones to install these tens of custom parts, lower the suspension and change the wheels to something extreme.

The kit is called PD600M. Unfortunately, it doesn't boost the output of the Turbo to 600 horsepower, though you could probably do that with some really extreme mods. Instead, Prior focused on getting rid of the slightly tall appearance of any crossover SUV.

You're not going to see a big clamshell hood with pieces of the fender still attached again. At the back, Prior went with a diffuser and the obligatory quad exhaust system. And to tie everything together, these customizers went for a blue paintjob.

The Macan's trademark 3D taillights have been connected using a black accent piece that carries the same design as the lower door trim. The wheels on this car are once again coming from Vossen, the VPS-305 multi-spoke design that matches the car very well. The only downside to this is that the factory brake system looks tiny, which is rare for Porsche. H&R coilovers are responsible for lowering the car by 35mm, which would have been a lot for most other cars.

It's not just the fenders that have been upgraded. The front bumper is entirely new, complete with larger air intakes and a protruding chin.

They went about this in the usual way, lowering the suspension, spacing out the wheels and covering them up in larger fenders.

Prior's work still revolves around cars like the Mercedes-AMG GT and the BMW M6 Gran Coupe. Coupes lend themselves to the widebody look much more easily than SUVs. But this Macan tuning project is a classic in the making, a hint at what happens when you are ready to change it all.
