Porsche Exclusive unveils special Macan S wearing a Sapphire Blue Metallic coat

Article by Christian A., on April 14, 2014

After we saw the special 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo Cabriolet, Porsche Exclusive is back with another masterpiece, a customized Macan S. Wearing a Sapphire Blue Metallic colour, the Macan S comes equipped with a new set of 21-inch Sport Classic alloy wheels that feature a high gloss black finish.

Still, this isn’t all as we also spotted new bi-xenon headlights fitted with a black background, SportDesign exterior mirrors, high gloss black front grille, side design elements and air diffuser with integrated exhaust system. The interior brings everything you wanted, included blue accents on the dashboard and on the doors.

Under the hood, this Porsche Macan S uses a 3.0-liter V6 biturbo petrol engine that generates 335 hp (250 kW). The engine pushes the Macan S from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.4 seconds and in 5.2 seconds when equipped with the optional Sport Chrono package, while the top speed is electronically limited at 254 km/h or 157.8 mph.

Despite these performances, fuel consumption remains low: between 9.0 and 8.7 liters/100 km, equal to 212 and 204 g/km of CO2. If not satisfied about this engine, you can go for a Macan Turbo, which is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 biturbo engine that delivers 394 hp (294 kW).

The Macan Turbo accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds and in 4.6 seconds when using the Sport Chrono package, while top speed is limited at 266 km/h or 165.2 mph.

Fuel consumption is between 0.2 and 8.9 liters/100 km, equal to 216 and 208 g/km of CO2. If you don’t want the Macan Turbo, then the Maca S Diesel is the perfect solution for you.

This model carries a 3.0-liter V6 biturbo diesel engine that delivers 254 hp (190 kW). As a result, the Macan S Diesel zooms from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.3 seconds, while top speed is limited at 230 km/h (142.9 mph).

As expected, fuel consumption drops even more on the diesel-powered Macan at 6.3 and 6.1 litres/100 km, while CO2 emissions are just between 164 and 159 g/km. Pricing for the 2014 Porsche Macan starts at 57.930 Euros for the Macan S and Macan S Diesel, while the Turbo costs 79.826 including euros.

One unique component of the Macan’s design is the assertive and impressive front section. Its air intakes are clearly large as one would expect from a Porsche. These air intakes also put focus on the performance class that models from the brand usually are part of. Under the Macan Turbo, the air intakes on the left and right have stylistic elements fitted to them, called as C-blades.

These same elements also help highlight that athletic appearance while also delivering a more sophisticated aerodynamic response. Meanwhile the wraparound bonnet is able to produce that striking design detail and not just encloses the headlights but extends all the way to the wheel arches. Given the commanding size of the vehicle’s bonnet plus the use of precision lines that runs to the front, the Macan gets to have that powerful and broad look.

The bonnet also utilizes a seamless surface to reveal a clean front. That this model is focused on the road is clear when looked at from the front. The side view on the other hand has the sporty sloping roofline which reveals the sharp profile and highlights the Macan’s dynamic nature.

It comes with design lines that run all the way to the rear end and put emphasis on the sculpted and broad wings. Combined with the edges of all the vehicle’s lateral glass surfaces, also known as window graphics, plus how the D-pillar has been shaped, the design line appears to be a nod to how the 911 is designed. The side has yet another design highlight which is also another way of customizing this model.

These are the sideblades that have been positioned at the bottom region of the front doors and the rear doors, dynamically formed inserts which are offered, as an option, in various materials. The way these sideblades have been designed bring to mind the lower door seams placed on the 918 Spyder, much like the front door entry guard. Mixed in with the sophisticated door handles, it makes the doors look narrower while the sides become more streamlined and athletic.
