In the new Macan GTS, the love of adrenaline is ignited by a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 engine producing 280kW (380PS). That’s 20PS more than the previous model. Two exhaust turbochargers in what is known as the central turbo layout ensure a spontaneous response. Maximum torque is 520Nm.
Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive provides traction, safety, outstanding steering behaviour and excellent handling.
Close contact with the road? Mandatory. Standard Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) lowers the new Macan GTS by 15mm, allowing you to really feel the tarmac. Not enough? The optional air suspension including PASM with self-levelling function and ride-height adjustment, unite opposites together from optimum comfort and outstanding athleticism: lowering your new Macan GTS by a further 10mm and offering even sportier tuning.
Still not enough? Optional Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) improves driving dynamics and stability. Which also increases cornering fun by selectively applying brake pressure to the left or right rear wheel.
First take a deep breath. This is also a design principle: the front apron instantly catches your eye with its large cooling air intakes. The SportDesign package gives the air intake grilles and distinctive airblades a matt black finish. Overall, the front has a wide, sporty appearance that hugs the tarmac. The standard tinted LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) optimally illuminate the road ahead and its bends.
The customary Macan sideblades are painted matt black and furnished with a high-gloss ‘GTS’ logo. 20-inch RS Spyder Design wheels in satin black are fitted as standard – ready for whatever you have planned.
If you’re looking for braking performance with the same ferocity as your thirst for adventure: the surface of the optional Porsche Surface Coated Brake (PSCB) is made of tungsten carbide. For consistently high braking performance, even during continuous use.
Finally, the well-honed rear: with continuous taillight strip, tinted three-dimensional LED taillights with four-point brake lights, a sporty black rear section with diffuser – and sports tailpipes. Quiet? Not today.
Some people are happy to drift. Others prefer to be actively involved. And where better than in the GTS sports seats, in which simply sitting still would exact maximum punishment?
Everything else in the interior – with its typical cockpit character – is also designed to tackle your next adventure in a manner that is both intense and controlled. The optional multifunctional GT sports steering wheel provides extremely sporty feedback. With its manageable size, its design is a reference to the Porsche motorsport genes. In conjunction with the optional Sport Chrono Package, the steering wheel also houses the mode switch: various driving modes allow you to adjust your driving pleasure to suit your requirements.
What about the materials? Sporty, elegant, non-slip: Alcantara® on the seat centres, armrests and centre console. The standard leather interior package is complemented by decorative elements in brushed aluminium in black. Evidence of the fact that this model bears its own signature: the ‘GTS’ logo on the rev counter, door sill guards and headrests of the front and outer rear seats.
