Porsche Macan Turbo Gets 434HP Courtesy Of New Performance Package

Porsche has announced a new Performance package for the range-topping Macan Turbo, adding a bit more poke to an already seriously fast crossover.

The twin-turbo 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine now delivers 434hp (440PS), almost 40hp more than the standard Turbo model, with peak torque risen to 442lb-ft (600Nm) which represents a 37lb-ft increase. The 0-62mph (0-100km/h) sprint now takes just 4.4 seconds, 0.4 of a second faster, while top speed is set at 169mph (272km/h).

Moving on to the chassis, the new Performance package adds 30 mm larger brake discs at the front, measuring 390mm in diameter, which are gripped by six-piston calipers. The suspension now offers a 15mm lower ride height, with the optional self-levelling air suspension also lowered by 10mm. The Sports Chrono Package and sports exhaust system are offered as standard.

The new Porsche Macan Turbo with the Performance package is also offered with a new range of equipment options, including the Turbo Exterior Package with 21-inch 911 Turbo wheels, LED main headlights with the company’s Dynamic Light System Plus. Also available is the Turbo Interior package which adds a black leather interior with Alcantara elements, colour appliqué highlights and carbon details.
