The current Porsche Macan is already one of the most powerful and fast premium crossovers on the market. But, even so, Porsche is looking to improve its performances with the introduction of a new Performance Package, built to impress even more when installed on the Macan Turbo.
After the performance enhancement, the twin-turbocharged, 3.6-litre V6 engine delivers 440 hp. With 40 hp more than the Macan Turbo, the car now accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds (a reduction of 0.4 seconds), and achieves a new top speed of 272 km/h (an increase of 6 km/h).
The maximum torque has also risen to 600 Nm (an increase of 50 Nm) and is available to the driver across a broad rev range of between 1,500 and 4,500 rpm. This also increases the tractive force: In Sport Plus mode, the time taken to accelerate from 80 km/h to 120 km/h has dropped to 2.9 seconds (a reduction of 0.2 seconds). Depending on the tyres, fuel consumption for the new top-of-the-range Macan model is between 9.4 l/100 km and 9.7 l/100 km.
But there is more behind that power bump. A newly developed brake system, lowered body, controlled sports chassis, Sport Chrono Package and sports exhaust system are all fitted as standard. The front axle features grooved brake discs with a diameter of 390 millimetres, 30 millimetres larger than the brake discs fitted on the Macan Turbo without Performance Package. The discs are gripped by six-piston brake callipers completed with a red paint finish.
Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) is also available and has been optimally tuned to the body on the vehicle, which has been lowered by 15 millimetres. Air suspension with self-levelling function and height adjustment, lowered by ten millimetres, is also available as an option.
To customise the Macan Turbo with Performance Package, a range of tailored equipment options are available, such as the Turbo Exterior Package. Options available with this package include 21-inch wheels in the 911 Turbo design with lateral spokes painted in high-gloss black, LED main headlights equipped with PDLS Plus and numerous other black elements. The Turbo Interior Package delivers a black leather interior with Alcantara elements, colour applique in numerous areas and carbon elements such as the door entry guards with the model logo lit up in white.
The Macan Turbo with Performance Package is available to order now. In Germany, the new top model costs 91.142 euros.
