    OFFICIAL: Porsche Macan GTS - A Little More Power, A Little More Style

    Like all Porsche models that bear these three letters, the new GTS version of the Macan is inspired by motor racing. A reengineered chassis, 20 hp more power than the Macan S and reinforced brakes supply the wherewithal. In terms of power and torque, its 360 hp (265 kW) and 500 Nm place the Macan GTS1) between the Macan S2) and the Macan Turbo3). The technical basis for this comprises the three-litre V6 bi-turbo engine of the Macan S accompanied by the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and Porsche Traction Management (PTM) with flexible power distribution between front and rear axles. Thus, the Macan GTS completes the sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds – and in just 5.0 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package. Top speed is 256 km/h. Features in the typical GTS styling round off the sporty impression.

    The Macan GTS combines a high level of typical Porsche driving dynamics with outstanding everyday utility. A sportier tuning of the PASM chassis that is lowered by 15 millimetres, along with 20-inch wheels in RS Spyder design with matt black paint finish and mixed tyres are features of the GTS equipment. Also in keeping with the style are the standard GTS sport seats with Alcantara centre panels, additional Alcantara trim in the interior as well as a full-sounding sports exhaust system. The new Porsche Communication Management (PCM) is celebrating its SUV debut in the Macan GTS. Together with the optional Connect Plus module, the high-quality multi-touch monitor offers online navigation with real-time traffic information and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay®.
    The Macan GTS can be recognised at first glance by exterior accents in black – in high gloss above the waistline and in a lustrous matt finish in the lower areas of the body – and by a special version of the Sport Design package, also in GTS-specific colouring, that comes as a standard feature. For the first time, the Macan GTS is also available with the option of LED headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus. They guarantee optimum illumination of the road under all conditions.

    Thanks to its special qualities, the new Macan GTS offers even more driving fun and even more Porsche feeling. With this model, Porsche is once more underlining its claim that the Macan is the sports car among compact SUVs.

    Sales of the Macan GTS in Germany commence on October 28, 2015. The price including VAT and country-specific equipment is 73,400 euros.

    Who exactly built the V6 engine that is in the Macan S ? Does it come from Audi ? 

    And the Turbo  one ? From Porsche ?

    Will the GTS engine be at par with  the Turbo ?

    They're both full-fledged Porsche engines derived from the Porsche V8.

    Love this car and I'm so glad the LED headlights are finally here. This light be my next ride...

    Re: Porsche Macan GTS: A Little More Power, A Little More Style

    This is a really great update from Porsche!

    The updated PCM (from 991.2) with multi-touch and apple car play integration is a really great addition as well as the LED headlights. These additions together with the GTS-package with sportier chassie setup, the (in my book) best seats in Alcantara seals the deal for me kiss


    Re: Porsche Macan GTS: A Little More Power, A Little More Style

    It looks very tempting. Problem for me is that it has a lot less space than my Cayenne. With two kids and a lot of luggage when travelling, space is important..

    Re: Porsche Macan GTS: A Little More Power, A Little More Style

    0-100 is 0.4s slower than the Macan turbo with only a 40hp difference, strange.

    I still don't understand why Porsche offers a GTS with less hp and slower than the turbo, makes no sense for the Cayenne and Macan especially.

    Please note the fuel tank is smaller on the GTS apparently, weight difference is 30kg. Still no PDDC.

    IMHO the turbo is the better buy for the price difference although I would have loved to get mine in that red color instead of the hugely boring agate grey...

    Re: Porsche Macan GTS: A Little More Power, A Little More Style

    A little bit peeved about the fact that they didn't stick the Macan Turbo front end onto this GTS, but HELLO VOLCANO GREY! This looks like it's going to be a mean little machine... And let's face it, the 3.0L turbo V6 always sounded better than the 3.6L V6 so this looks like a tempting proposition.

    A "GTS Package" should be available as an option for the Turbo, I agree but this is how Porsche wants to differentiate the GTS from the Turbo, a huge mistake in my opinion.

    I never noticed that the 3.0 l sounds better than the 3.6 l, actually I think they sound the same (heard the PSE versions only though).

    There is a reason why the Turbo has the 3.6 l engine, at 360-380 hp, the 3.0 l engine is at it's power zenith with the current turbo setup. The 3.6 l engine can easily be pushed over 450 hp without any major issues. Smiley

    Re: Porsche Macan GTS: A Little More Power, A Little More Style

    Volcano grey looks REALLY good! A bit darker and less brown than the Agate grey?

    Anyone who can post pictures of this colour? Perhaps on another porsche model? Didn't find anything on google when I did a quick search...


    Re: Porsche Macan GTS: A Little More Power, A Little More Style

    On the Volcano grey topic. Isn't that the colour that was (or still is) painted on the back of the Adaptive Sport seats? At least was so for the 997


    Re: Porsche Macan GTS: A Little More Power, A Little More Style

    New Volcano Grey Metallic is a new color. No similarities with Volcano Grey plastic for seat backs, except for the name.

    I really like this package. Congratulations Super Darius and Lucas, great choice.kiss

    Well RC, the Panamera has the same engine with even 420 PS, is that too much in your opinion? 

    Cheers.

    Cheers.

    I emailed my P source and he replied that this 3.0l engine is good for 450ps/550Nm without any problem.
