As mentioned before the guys from Stuttgart brought nothing less than 3 European premieres to the Brussels Motor Show. On display we saw the Porsche Macan S, Macan Turbo and 911 Turbo S Cabrio. Next to that our eye also spotted the new GT3 and a special limited edtion 911 created for the 50th anniversary from the brand.
The most notable of course was the 911 Turbo S Cabriolet, probably one of the best road going cars from Porsche at the moment. With it’s 3.8 litre six-cylinder engine producing 560 hp you’ll be able to sprint from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds and reach a limited top speed of 318 km/h.
Secondly there were two Porsche mini SUV’s on diplay. The Macan S and Macan Turbo are the smaller brothers of the very popular Cayenne. The Macan Turbo features a 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine producing 400 hp while the Macan S comes with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine delivering 340 hp.
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.
