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

    If the ECU flash is from the factory or dealer recommended, why not. I actually upgraded my V8 Roadster at the dealer with the factory tune at the time for the 4.3l engine, zero issues whatsoever. But Porsche doesn't really offer that...


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

    Auto Motor and Sport (Swedish version) had a short review of Macan GTS in the latest issue. They really liked it and specially commented about the sound. They thought that the Macan GTS PSE sounded even better than the 991.2 with PSE that they did drive the same day. Quite interesting observation.

    Quite interesting but weird since I know both sounds. Smiley The Macan GTS sounds louder in the interior...maybe (not even sure about that) but from the outside, the Macan GTS sounds like the current Turbo with PSE,  a tiny bit more aggressive maybe but just the interior sound is much better and the exhaust blips may be a bit more evident. And the Macan Turbo with PSE doesn't really sound as good as the 991.2 Carrera S with PSE from the outside, not even close, it has a deeper tone and isn't even close to the typical 911 sound (which would be weird for a SUV).

    Of course the Macan GTS (this is valid for the Turbo with PSE as well) sounds much better than 99% of the SUVs in it's market segment out there, so... I can see why car journalists are getting easily excited with the Macan GTS. Smiley

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

    Anyone who have some more technical details regarding the chassie changes on the Macan GTS compared to S/Turbo? Would be interesting to know if there are any hardware changes apart from that the springs are lower and that the PASM has been tweaked for a sportier setup (whatever that means)?

    Would also be interesting if there are other tweaks to the Air Suspension?

    Thanks in advance for any input!

    Thanks for the pic Lukas! ...looks fantastic!!  kiss   Perfect!  wink


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

    Imo the Macan's design really benefits from sitting gin big wheels. It really brings the whole shape of the car together.

    Much, much better than Gemballa to my eyes.

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

    not usually a fan of aftermarket addenda, but I like !!

    the lowered stance makes a real difference

    You know me well... Smiley but no, not even in black with black wheels. Too much. 

    I like SUVs in their original look but with monster engines. Almost bought myself a used Dodge Ram SRT 10 with little mileage a year ago, car was "only" 30k EUR and in perfect shape. My Jeep dealer had the car as a collectible but needed the room for new toys, so he wanted to get rid of it and he knew I would take good care of it. Tempting offer (because of the engine) but this wasn't exactly the type of car I was looking for. If this would have been a SUV, I would have taken the offer for sure. The V10 engine from the Viper is amazing.

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

    As sfo mentioned, I too am not usually a fan of aftermarket kits, but I think this one is very nice indeed. It doesn't have weird shaped aero foils (like Gemballa's products) . They have widened the car's track and have tastefully done the wheel arches. Also the lowered stance really adds to the car. I love the color, although I actually think that this car in black (with an extra coat of clear) would look very nice indeed. Of course, the writing on it would have to go.


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

    That kit looks terrible, very after market...

    Have you taken delivery yet?  I'm anxious to see pics and hear your impressions.    wink


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

    i have taken delivery of macan gts for family and dogs whilst i keep my targa mayfair.

    i can report that its an incredible package.

    not to be compared with a 991.1 but incredible none the less.

    positives and negatives of turbo.

    rides brilliantly.

    wife likes economy so quiet and supple ride.

    i can sport with exhaust so more enjoyable for me.

    apple car play is a disaster and i love apple products.

    right now waze is the most useful app and you can't use apps in apple play so frankly, i can't see the value for music and contacts which you have without car play.
