New Porsche Macan security rated as ‘Superior’ by Thatcham Research
The security rating of the new Porsche Macan has been judged ‘Superior’ following assessment of the specification of a motion sensor function on the key fob by an insurance research association.
Richard Billyeald, Chief Technical Officer at Thatcham Research, comments: “We are pleased to be able to rate the Porsche Macan as having ‘Superior’ security following clarification from Porsche Cars GB.
“Vehicle manufacturers are beginning to offer solutions and fixes to Keyless Entry/Start vulnerabilities, with Audi, Jaguar Land Rover, Mercedes and Porsche really taking a lead. We expect others to follow suit quickly.”
