Porsche Macan Parts

The Porsche Macan is the company’s attempt at building a luxury crossover SUV, complete with five doors, comfortable seating and loads of other features. The Macan range includes numerous variants like the S, S Diesel, GTS, and Turbo etc. Interestingly Macan and Audi Q5 share the same platform.

The First Generation Macan

Porsche started producing the first generation Macan after it was unveiled at the 2013 LA Auto show, and later at the Tokyo Motor Show. The Euro versions went on sale in mid-2014, with the launch of the Turbo and S variants.

First Generation US models arrived later and were introduced as the 2015 model.

Performance

All three models of the Macan boast of a V6 engine under the hood. The S variant came with a 3.0-litre engine producing 335 bhp; the Turbo came with a slightly more powerful 3.6-litre 395 bhp engine.

Later the Macan was released in select Asian markets including the UK. The versions for these markets used the 2.0-litre Volkswagen Group inline-four engine. It is the same engine as the one in the Audi Q5.

Introduction of the Four-Cylinder Engine Model in 2016

In 2016 Porsche unveiled the 2016 model at the New York International Auto Show. The inline-four turbocharged 2-litre engine came with brake callipers in the back, black window surrounds, front fascia, stainless steel exhaust pipes, and Alcantara seat centres. It also came with the latest generation of the Porsche Communication Management system or PCM, with lane departure warning and a piano black interior.

However, it wasn’t until 2017 that the four-cylinder model made it across the Atlantic in the US in addition to a couple of Asian markets.

Conclusion

While the Macan S and Turbo weren’t meant to be speed demons, they still had impressive 0-97 km/h acceleration. Both models reached 100 km/h in under 5 seconds. However, 0.2 seconds were shaved off by the use of Launch Control, which was part of the Sport Chrono package.
