I've tried restraint, and honestly I don't much like it. I was reminded of that fact multiple times when behind the wheel of the 2020 Porsche Macan Turbo: after all, it's been just two months since I proclaimed the Macan S the sweet-spot for sports crossovers, and already I was starting to question my resolve.

Rolls-Royce made a 1:8 scale Cullinan SUV that costs more than a real car

Rolls-Royce made a 1:8 scale Cullinan SUV that costs more than a real car

The latest hand-finessed frippery from the British automakers boutique, the 1:8 scale Cullinan is astonishing in its level of detail - though then again perhaps that's what you'd expect from a hand-made model.

The Porsche Macan S nails the sports crossover sweet-spot

The Porsche Macan S nails the sports crossover sweet-spot

It's no secret that Porsche's SUVs have been quietly underwriting the automaker's more enthusiast-focused cars for some time now. Models like the Cayenne and Macan have found a healthy audience of drivers seeking the driving experience and the badge of a Porsche, but who need more practicality than from, say, a Cayman. You could call it compromise, but spend some time in the Porsche Macan S and you might start to wonder if it's the sports car drivers that are missing out.

The Honda badge is now blue-edged, while the rear bumper is different and hides the tailpipe; Touring trim splashes on some extra chrome, too. It all begs the question: how loud does your hybrid really need to be?
