Detroit 2014: Porsche Macan Turbo

The Porsche Macan Turbo is on display at the Detroit Motor Show 2014 once again. It follows a dual release at the Toyko and Los Angeles Motor Shows towards the end of last year. We took a look at the baby Porsche once again!

The 2014 Porsche Macan Turbo features a 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine producing 400 hp at 6000 rpm. This power has been achieved thanks to the turbochargers running boost pressure of 17.4 psi. Consequently, the SUV will sprint from 0 to 96 km/h in just 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 263 km/h. When it is equipped with the Sport Chrono package the 0-96 km/h sprint drops to 4.4 seconds. Just like the standard Macan S, the Macan Turbo is fitted standard with the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission.

A key technical feature on the 2014 Porsche Macan is Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus). This system has been specifically tailored for use in the Macan and uses a variable standard torque split at the rear wheels alongside an electronically controlled rear axle differential lock. The system measures steering angle, steering speed, accelerator pedal position and vehicle speed and can improve cornering through targeted braking on the inside rear wheel.
