Porsche has unveiled the 2017 Macan GTS, which borrows the 3.0L twin-turbocharged V6 from the Macan S, but dials up the performance with 360-hp and 369 lb-ft. of torque. The Macan GTS also gets a reengineered suspension, unique GTS-specific exterior and interior appointments, and new connectivity options.
The 3.0L V6 is mated to the all-wheel-drive system from the Macan Turbo and Porsche’s seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. With the optional Sport Chrono package, the Macan GTS reaches 60 mph in 4.8 seconds and has a top track speed of 159 mph. The Porsche Stability Management system has also been recalibrated for the Macan GTS and when combined with the Sport Chrono package, the Macan GTS packs 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.
The Macan GTS also comes standard with an air suspension that provides adjustable ride height and damper stiffness. The Macan GTS also rides 10-millimeters lower than the Macan Turbo.
