Porsche mulling a GTS version of the Macan

After having sold out the first batch of Macan in many European markets, Porsche is now considering introducing a GTS version in the lineup. As the name signifies, the Macan GTS will be a more focused, top-end, performance variant of the crossover. 

Porsche Macan

Talking to Bloomberg, Matthias Mueller, CEO, Porsche said that they are also considering a leaner, sportier GTS model.Back in 2003, Porsche had first announced a Cayenne GTS and the Macan GTS would be based along the same lines. The Cayenne GTS, based on the manual Cayenne S model, was lighter, featured a stiffer chassis setup and an aerodynamic body kit. The Macan range currently features a selection of petrol and diesel V6 engines under the hood with the power ranging from 340bhp in the base S model, to 400bhp in the Turbo. Porsche offers the Macan with its seven-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission and all-wheel-drive.

While Porsche continues experimenting and introducing newsuper cars, the Cayenne and the Macan are actually the ones who set Porsche’s cash registers ringing and together will make up 64 per cent of the company’s sales next year. With prices starting at USD 51,095 (Rs 31,86,566) the Macan is one of the ‘affordable’ cars in German car maker’s range. The crossover is expected to help Porsche breach the 2,00,000 mark in sales figures, three years ahead its target. The Macan currently shares the segment with BMW X3, Mercedes GLK, Audi Q5 and the Range Rover Evoque.
