New Porsche Macan GTS: Better than the more expensive Turbo

One thing in advance: In terms of appearance, the new Porsche Macan GTS is in no way inferior to the more powerful top model Turbo. However, there is a gap in the drive when looking at the performance data. In both variants, the double-charged 2.9-liter V6 serves as the engine. In the turbo, however, the unit delivers 440 HP (324 kW) and 550 Nm, while the GTS “only” has 380 HP (280 kW) and 520 Nm torque.

It is all the more surprising that you can only feel a bit of the difference in performance in practice if you really put your weight in it: To accelerate the almost two-ton all-wheel drive vehicle to 100 km / h, it takes 4.7 seconds in the GTS – 4.5 seconds in the Turbo , The same at the top: GTS 261 km / h, Turbo 270 km / h. In practice, hardly a customer will notice this.
