The Macan will come in three familiar porsche trims; the Macan S Diesel, Macan S, and Macan Turbo.
The diesel version will have a 3.0 V6 engine which produces 258 hp and can reach 62 mph in 6.3 seconds. The Macan S will be equipped with a more powerful 3.6 liter V6 biturbo engine capable of producing 340 hp and hitting 62 mph in 5.4 seconds. The last and most powerful trim of the Macan will boast a 400 hp engine that is able to hit 62 mph in a mere 4.8 seconds. Keep in mind, there are very few SUVs currently offered that can post sub 5 second 0 - 60 times.
Porsche expects to build a whopping 50,000 Macans per year. With the new Macan porsche is trying to fill a gap that it had in its lineup. If the Macan turns out to be a success, Porsche will maintain its financial stability and continue to make amazing cars like the 911.
Although the Porsche Macan reveal was impressive, our attention was - not surprisingly - drawn elsewhere in Porsche's section of the Auto Show. The plethora of 911s and the all new limited edition 918 Spyder completely stole our attention.
On scene was a GT3, 911 Turbo, and 911 Turbo S. Each of these cars commands your respect in a way no other car could. The pure beauty and sportiness of these 911 models is unique and unmatched in the auto world. Porsche will continue to be a world leader in the auto industry. There were little changes to the Porsche 911 model for the year of 2014; only with Porsche are we more than completely fine with that.
