Porsche Macan GTS unveiled

Porsche wants to be sure it benefits from one of the biggest motor shows in Asia and unveiles the new Macan GTS during this year Tokyo Motor Show. The new Macan GTS enlarges the range of other GTS models, like the Panamera GTS, the Cayenne GTS or the Cayman GTS. As its older brothers, the Macan GTS features more power, a reengineered suspension, unique GTS-specific exterior and interior appointments, and new connectivity options.

Based on the 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine in the Macan S, the Macan GTS allows the engine to develop 360 hp at 6000 rpm and 369 lb.-ft. of torque between 1650-4000 rpm. The rest of the all-wheel-drive powertrain matches up to the Macan Turbo: Porsche's seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission is combined with Porsche's Traction Management system (PTM) that actuates an electro-hydraulic, multi-plate clutch to variably engage the front axle depending on traction needs. And with such mechanic adjustments the Macan GTS goes from 0 to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds in conjunction with the optional Sport Chrono Package and up to a top track speed of 159 mph.

Large 360 mm front rotors, with six-piston fixed calipers finished in red, and 330 mm rear rotors, with single-piston calipers also painted in red, provide the braking force needed.

Air suspension, including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), comes standard on the Macan GTS. This combination provides adjustable ride height and damper stiffness. Macan GTS specific suspension tuning also includes a 10-millimeter reduction of standard ride height, compared to the Macan Turbo, further lowering the center of gravity.

Seen from the outside, the Macan GTS is recognized by the many black exterior accents. The window trim is finished in high gloss black, there is a matte finish on the lower body and the Porsche Macan GTS designation on the rear hatch, and the standard 20 inch RS Spyder Design wheels are finished in Satin Black. Side blades, located in the lower portion of the doors, are matte black with GTS logos in contrasting gloss black. 

The Macan GTS will be available with optional LED headlights that feature Porsche's unique four-point daytime running lights, as well as a cornering light function.

The 2017 Macan GTS goes on sale in March 2016, with a base price of $67,200 excluding a destination change.
