The new 2017 Porsche Macan GTS occupies a position between the Macan GTS and the Macan Turbo. Its mission is to promote the synthesis between sports car and SUV. Its promise is more driving fun combined with exclusivity in design. This means that the Macan is now also following the GTS product strategy that Porsche has been successfully pursuing in other model series for years. The characteristic Porsche sound may drive our passion, but acoustics is yet another area in which we continuously strive for optimisation. Let’s begin at the heart.
2017 Porsche Macan GTS Engine
Three engines are available at launch, all V6 and all turbocharged. One of those is diesel, and the one actually badged “Turbo” has a brace of turbos to serve up more than 400 horses. Thanks to more effective air induction by means of the reworked intake tract and reduced exhaust backpressure together with a boost pressure increased by 0.2 bar to a maximum of 1.2 bar, the three-litre petrol engine now produces an extra 20 hp – 360 instead of 340 hp. At the same time, the maximum torque increases from 460 to 500 Nm at 1450 to 5000 rpm. Power is transmitted via the seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) fitted as standard. It permits lightning-fast gear shifts without any interruption in traction, automatically or optionally via paddles on the steering wheel.
2017 Porsche Macan GTS Design
As a creator of sports cars, we know that driver and car must form a single entity. As such, you do not simply sit in the Macan – the ergonomic architecture integrates you into the vehicle. The three-dimensional arrangement of the controls lends the interior a cockpit-style layout. In typical Macan fashion, the sporty front seats convey a sense of height above the road but a firm connection with it. Two manually operated and ergonomically positioned gearshift paddles enable fast and sporty gear changes. The front and outer rear seat belts, the rev counter, the decorative stitching.
