Remember China’s Porsche Macan clone? Of course you do. The Zotye SR8 has now been photographed in several different colors, with some being more appropriate than others.
Naturally, you can make a case that there’s absolutely nothing “appropriate” about the SR8 since it’s clearly a Macan “wannabe” with none of the tech and the quality you’d expect from a Porsche.
That doesn’t mean a trained eye can’t tell them apart, as the SR8 is slightly less aggressive and features larger headlights and taillights that extend onto the body panels. That being said, it’s also possible that the SR8 will feature a sportier-looking version, so far identifiable by its blacked-out front grille which can be seen in the top-left corner of one of the images.
As for the interior, as we’ve seen before, it’s nothing more than a rip off – from the steering wheel to the lower center console and the clock that sits atop the dashboard – though, not all versions seem to have it.
According to Carnewschina, the SR8 will be priced from 88,800 yuan ($13,300), with the flagship version costing 99,900 yuan ($15,000). To put things into perspective, the Porsche Macan starts at 558,000 ($56,000) yuan in China.
In other words, the price of a Macan clone is more or less equal to that of a Chevrolet Spark or a Nissan Note in the US.
