After few leaked photos, the technical specifications of the 2014 Porsche Macan emerged on the web. So, we found out that the Macan S Diesel will weigh 1,898 kg (4,184 lbs), while the Macan S has a weight of 1,928 kg (4,250 lbs) and the Macan Turbo weighs 1,947 kg (4,292 lbs).
2014 Macan S Diesel will get a 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine with 258 hp and 580 Nm of torque, enough for a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 226 km/h or 140 mph.
Macan S will have a 3.0-liter V6 petrol engine developing 340 hp and 460 Nm of torque. This models hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.5 seconds and has a top seed of 254 km/h 157 mph.
Macan Turbo has a 3.6-liter V6 engine rated at 400 hp and 550 Nm of torque. This is the most powerful model and it has a top speed of 269 km/h (167 mph) and reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds. The 2014 Porsche Macan is expected to cost around $52,000 and will make its official debut later this month at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The Macan’s inspiring, strong front is a distinct design component. The dominant air intakes are characteristic Porsche and accent the performance group that the brand's automobiles usually fall under. In the Macan Turbo, C-blade style elements, fitted in the right and left air intakes, accent the athletic look and give a refined aerodynamic reaction.
The wraparound hood produces a striking design touch, surrounding the headlamps and reaching down to the wheel arches. The imposing bonnet size and its accurate outlines flowing to the vehicle’s front give the Macan a wide and strong look, while the continuous bonnet surface offers a smooth front for the automobile. The Macan's road concentration is especially evident when observed from the front.
The silhouette, with its athletic sloped roofline, produces a crisp profile and accentuates the vehicle’s vivid nature, while the style lines flowing to the vehicle’s rear accent the wide, sculptured wings. Along with window graphics, all lateral glass surface edge, and the D-pillar shape, these design cues are a nod to the 911 design.
Another design feature of the profile, and another way of personalising the vehicle, are the side-blades at the front and rear door bottoms, energetically shaped inserts that are available options in different materials. The side-blades designs are similar to the 918 Spyder lower door seams, as is the front door entry guard. Blended with the graceful door handles, this means the doors seem more tapered and the sides considerably sportier and more aerodynamic.
