New Porsche Macan SUV Performance Specs Purportedly Leaked

Adding to the wealth of information and media material we have of the LA Auto Show-bound new Porsche Macan, is an official spec-sheet, allegedly sourced from Porsche China, in which we see the compact luxury SUVs performance numbers, weight and dimensions.

You’ll need to keep two things in mind about this sheet, the first being that we have not yet confirmed its authenticity and the second one, that if true, the data may apply to the China market model and could differ from the European and North American specification models.

In it, we see that there are three models beginning with the Macan S powered by a 3.0-liter V6 gasoline unit (possibly based on Audi’s supercharged 3.0 TFSI) delivering 340HP (it could be PS) and 460Nm (339 lb-ft) for a 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint time of 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 254km/h (158mph). This version tips the scales at a rather hefty 1,928kg (4,250 pounds).

Next up is the Macan S Diesel, again with a 3.0-liter V6 rated on paper for 258HP and 580Nm (428 lb-ft), a 0-100km/h (62mph) time of 6.2 seconds and a maximum speed of 226km/h (140mph).

Last but not least, there’s the Macan Turbo featuring Porsche’s new 3.6-liter turbocharged V6 twisting out 400HP and 550Nm (406 lb-ft) in this application, for a 0-100km/h (62mph) time of 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 269 km/h.

The Macan measures 4,675mm (184 inches) in length, 1,923mm (75.7 inches) in width, 1,628mm (64.1 inches) tall, and rides on a 2,807mm (110.5 inches) wheelbase – we should note that there are some discrepancies compared to the dimensions made available by a German magazine here.

We’ll know for sure if all these numbers add up in the coming days and weeks when Porsche officially releases the Macan.
