We were sorry to see the 2017 Porsche Macan GTS go!


Here’s what the critics had to say about it:

“It comes with a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 with upgraded internals and revised tuning to produce 360 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. The dynamic benefits of the GTS’s chassis tweaks, however, were immediately apparent as we connected the 156 twists and turns of the temporarily closed-to-the-public Pikes Peak International Hill Climb course. The Macan’s optional air springs and PASM (electronically adjusted dampers) are standard on the GTS; this suspension adjusts through different heights and three levels of stiffness, with the overall setup being 0.4 inch lower and about 10 percent firmer than the standard Macan’s.”

“The overall effect is a package with performance befitting a modern performance car. On models equipped optional Sport Chrono Package, 60 mph is said to come in just 4.8 seconds, though our friends at Motor Trend managed to get there in just 4.4 seconds. Braking? Well, in the same MT test, the Macan GTS needed just 104 feet to go from 60 mph to a complete stop. And, before we conclude this numerical interlude, it put up a 0.94 g on the skidpad.”
