New GTS model from Porsche: the sportiest Macan
Porsche completes the Macan series with a distinctly sporty model.
The new Macan GTS launches with a powerful engine. The 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine delivers 380 PS – an increase of 20 PS compared with the predecessor model- and 520 Nm of torque. Combined with the newly adapted PDK dual-clutch transmission and the op- tional Sport Chrono package, the Macan GTS can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, three tenths faster than before. It has a top speed of 261 km/h.
The abbreviation GTS, which stands for “Gran Turismo Sport”, due to its outstanding driving dynamics. The Porsche Active Suspension Management damping control system has been specially tuned. The chassis has also been lowered by 15 millimetres for greater lateral dynamics. Combined with the standard 20-inch RS Spyder Design wheels and the generously sized cast iron brakes (360 x 36 millimetres at the front, 330 x 22 millimetres at the rear), the new Macan GTS impresses with the agility and responsiveness of a true sports car.
The new Macan GTS also emphasises its exceptional sporty status visually. The standard Sport Design package with new front and rear trim and striking side skirts lends the car a characteristic appearance. High-quality materials such as Alcantara on the seat centre panels, the centre console armrests and door panels as well as brushed aluminium make it possible to also see and feel the sporty and elegant characteristics of the Macan GTS in the interior. The multifunction sports steering wheel with the steering wheel rim in leather and shift paddles is standard, as are the sports seats, exclusive to the GTS, with eight-way adjustment and pronounced side bolsters for stable support during dynamic cornering.
The new Macan GTS is available to order now. Prices start at 80,916 euros.
