Porsche outdid itself once again with the new Macan GTS. Equipped with a more powerful engine than the Macan S and with better brakes, Porsche has given the market another motor racing-inspired vehicle that will definitely be a hit among fans of that genre of motoring.
The car’s power plant, a 3-liter V6 bi-turbo engine, gives it a power output of 360 hp or 265 kW, generating a torque of 500 Nm. Its front and rear axles are managed by the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) technologies, respectively.
The impressive power rating and torque results to a machine with a top speed of 256 km/h and an acceleration that reaches 100 km/h from a standstill in an amazing 5.0 seconds record with the Sport Chrono package added.
Porsche Macan GTS features a lower riding height, with the PASM chassis lower than it was with previous Macan GTS models. It is equipped with 20-inch RS Spyder design wheels with mixed tyes. Inside, one can find center panels of the standard GTS sports seats that are made of the exclusive Alcantara leather material.
In addition, for the first time, the Porsche Communication Mangement finds itself inside the Macan GTS SUV.
The technology can be paired with an optional Connect Plus model to give drivers continually updated traffic information through the multi-touch monitor. It also makes use of Apple CarPlay to integrate smartphones.
Porsche Macan GTS’ exterior is aesthetically distinctive thanks the black accents in its finish. The lower portions of the new Macan’s body are given a shiny black matt finish. A similar black accent is found on the upper half of the body, but this time it gets a high gloss.
Macan GTS also features as standard a special Sport Design package that gives GTS-specific coloring to the exterior.
Furthermore exterior features are rounded by optional LED headlights that implement the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus.
With its innovative features in the exterior, interior and functional parts of its design, the Macan GTS promises an exceptional driving experience that retains the trademarked Porsche feel. The new compact SUV is now available in Germany for a price tag of 73,400 Euros.
