The top model in the Porsche Macan lineup is the Macan Turbo and in 2017 Porsche made it extra special by offering a Performance Package add on.

With 30 kW (40 hp) more than the Macan Turbo, this figure places this variant firmly in the top spot in this model line. The car now accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds
For the 2017 model year, Porsche added the Macan GTS trim to the lineup. The new Macan GTS gets a higher-output version of the twin-turbo V-6 that powers the S model. It also gets tweaked performance-oriented chassis, unique design elements and additional standard equipment. The 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine delivers 355 bhp @ 6000 rpm and 369 ft lbs of torque from 1650 rpm. Combined with the newly adapted PDK dual-clutch transmission, the Macan GTS can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds.
Porsche’s oil burner variant is a fairly irresistible redo of Audi’s architecture. Aside from the compact size, there is no obvious visual connection to the Q5. Porsche’s designers went to work inside and out. The Macan S Diesel is the economical long-distance runner of the three Macan models. Its 3.0-litre, six-cylinder V-engine has tons of torque and lots of range.
