2015 Porsche Macan GTS spied testing on Nurburgring [w/video]

Article by Andrew Christian, on August 28, 2014

Earlier this year in February, Porsche CEO Matthias Mueller admitted that the GTS performance version of the Macan makes a lot of sense but not details were given about a final decision. In the meantime, it appears that the Macan GTS received green light for production as the vehicle was spired while testing hard on the Nurburgring.

Just like the Cayenne GTS, the Macan GTS will be positioned below the Turbo version and will arrive with larger brakes, a stiffer suspension as well as with several aerodynamic elements.

Under the hood, we expect to see the same 3.6-liter V6 biturbo engine that powers the Macan Turbo, but detuned to 360 hp.

On the Turbo version, the biturbo V6 engine generates 394 hp and can push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.8 seconds (4.6 seconds with Sport Chrono Package), while top speed is limited at 266 km/h or 165 mph.

Porsche is rumored to offer the 2015 Macan GTS with a 70,000 euros price tag, but we still have to get some official info.
