Porsche Macan Turbo Gets More Power, New Wheels, From Schmidt

More than a week after Porsche detailed their new Performance Package for the Macan Turbo, Schmidt Revolution are offering their own power upgrade for the range-topping model.

Taking the standard 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 petrol engine and bringing output from 400PS (394hp) and 550Nm (406 lb-ft) to 441 PS (435 HP) and 640 Nm (472 lb-ft) of torque, or 1 PS (1 HP) 40 Nm (30 lb-ft) of torque more than the Macan equipped with the Performance Package. The software optimization costs €3,850 ($4,335).

For another €2,750 ($3,097), the tuner will throw in a sports exhaust system, and since this is Schmidt Revolution, an extensive range of aftermarket wheels are also found on the list of upgrades. Produced in different concavities for the front and rear axle, the rims have been treated with a polished undercut and, depending on the width of the wheel, the spokes of the rear one are more concave than the one on the front.

The wheels can be powder-coated for an additional €392 ($441) per set, while another €396 ($446) will have to be paid for a weight optimization of minimum 0.6 kg. Customers who opt for the new 22-inch rims can have them finished in either Hyper Silver, Black Mat with polished undercut, Black Glossy simple or with decorative screws on a polished rim ring, and Black Mat with front polished spokes, which can be joined by decorative screws.
