We have an early candidate for the 2017 Crash of the Year (COTY); with a Zotye SR9 crashing into a Porsche Cayenne. The SR9 is very famous for being a clone of the Porsche Macan. This particular wine red example apparently wanted to be a Cayenne.

The Zotye SR9 is a complete clone of the Porsche Macan. But with Zotye badges on it people might still think you are poor. That problem has now been solved thanks to innovative Chinese entrpeneurs selling their wares on Alibaba’s Taobao, a Chinese e-commerce website that combines eBay and Amazon.
They sell full sets of Porsche Macan badges for the SR9, the sets are so popular that even Zotye dealers are putting them on, a seen on the first photo. The same thing happened with the Landwind X7.

No, this is not a Porsche Macan. This indeed is the Zotye SR9, a Chinese clone of the Macan. It was delayed by a coupe of times but now it has finally been launched on the market. Price of the SR9, formerly known as the SR8, starts at 109.800 and ends at 162.800 yuan ($16.115 – 23.900). The Macan starts at 558.000 yuan ($83.000). So you can have 5.5 SR9’s for one Macan. I have since heard that the first SR9’s have arrived at the single Zotye dealer in Beijing, next Monday I will go to have a look.

The Zotye SR9, formerly known as the Zotye SR8, is a near perfect ripoff, only details such as he grille and lights differ from the Macan. See a detailed comparison here.

Starting with the big news; like we expected the Zotye SR8 Porsche Macan clone will be called the Zotye SR9 when it hits the Chinese car market on October 12. This kind of late name changes are common in China and business as usual at Zotye.
