Porsche considering a GTS version of the Macan

Article by Christian A., on February 11, 2014

In a recent interview with Bloomberg, Porsche CEO Matthias Mueller said that the German company is considering a GTS performance version of the recently introduced Macan. According to Mueller, the GTS versions have a tradition at Porsche, but for the moment the carmaker didn’t make a final decision.

Still, Mueller added that the Macan GTS makes a lot of sense. Currently, the Macan is available in three versions: Macan S, Macan S Diesel and Macan Turbo. The Porsche Macan S is powered by a 3.0-liter V6 biturbo engine rated at 335 hp and capable to push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.4 seconds and to a top speed of 254 km/h or 158 mph.

The Macan S Diesel uses a 3.0-liter V6 turbo diesel engine that generates 254 hp. Macan S Diesel sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.3 seconds, while top speed is limited at 230 km/h or 143 mph.

The Macan Turbo is the most powerful model and comes with a 3.6-liter V6 biturbo engine that delivers 394 hp. With this engine, the Macan Turbo accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds (4.6 seconds with the Sport Chrono package) and has a top speed electronically limited at 266 km/h (165 mph).

Just like the Cayenne GTS uses the same engine as the Cayenne Turbo, the Macan GTS is expected to use a detuned version of the 3.6-liter V6 biturbo engine found on the Macan Turbo. Moreover, the Macan GTS will receive most of the features found on the Macan Turbo. Pricing is expected to be a little smaller comparing it with the Macan Turbo.
