Porsche Macan GTS

The Macan With GTS Performance

The new Macan – built for a busy life that refuses to be hemmed in by conventions and feels all the more authentic for it. Direct and intimate. The term ‘sports SUV’ is no longer an oxymoron.

Concept

There's no freewheeling in life. It drives us to new things every day. Not going from A to B, but to the limit. To take it all in. And set yourself the challenge - 24 hours of each and every new day. As sports car manufacturers, we have this attitude in our blood. And we never stand still. We have driven the new Macan GTS in numerous tests on the racetrack so that in everyday life you can experience a new form of high performance. We have made it sharper to generate more endorphins. We have made the sound more resonant and intensive - a veritable feast for the ears. In brief, not a car for the faint-hearted. But a statement in design and performance. The facts: higher 265 kW (360 hp) and 500 Nm torque. A 15-mm lower suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and an edgier design - with the optional new LED main headlights for example. Those who like to live life to the full don't make any compromises - inside or out: classic materials like leather and Alcantara and the new high-quality Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with optional navigation module, online services and Apple CarPlay round off the overall image of a sports car that provides pure fascination. For a thrilling driving experience. Life in a Porsche that bears the letters GTS.

Drive

Would you prefer to experience the gear change or the driving pleasure? No contest. The new Macan is equipped with the 7-speed PDK transmission, which changes gear in fractions of a second with no interruption in the flow of power. The advantage is that, whenever a particular gear is engaged, the next gear is already preselected. As the clutch of the engaged gear opens, the clutch of the target gear closes simultaneously. The effect is a sporty, dynamic and agile driving feel.

Chassis

For a high level of comfort and tremendous dynamic performance, you have the option of an air suspension including PASM. With this setup, the car is 15 mm lower than with the sports suspension, while the Macan GTS sits 10 mm lower than the Macan S with air suspension. The effect? A generous spread of ride comfort and dynamic performance. The self-levelling function helps to keep the ride height constant.

Comfort

Five doors. Five seats. Excellent everyday practicality – and an elevated sitting position. That’s what you can expect of an SUV. Now let’s consider what you can expect of a Porsche: sports car sensations. You get in – and find the ignition lock closest to the door. It’s typically Porsche, and has been since 1948. An old motorsport tradition.

The interior architecture integrates you perfectly into the vehicle. This is exemplified by the three-dimensional arrangement of the controls and the ascending centre console with control buttons for the most important comfort functions. The layout emulates that of the Carrera GT – it’s as if you’re sitting in a sports car. The multifunction sports steering wheel with 918 Spyder design provides the ideal hands-on experience. Its appearance is futuristic and its design highly ergonomic. Gearshift paddles as well as multifunction buttons for telephone, radio and on-board computer offer high levels of user comfort. Steering wheel heating is available as an option. Sports car genes are also inherent in the three round instruments. The rev counter is positioned in the centre, exactly where it belongs in a sports car. In this way, you can see all the essentials at a glance when you’re on the move – and keep up to speed with all relevant information.
