This was 0.3 seconds faster than the previous model, and the maximum speed was 261km / h.
The sports exhaust system makes the characteristic sound of the 2.9-liter V6 engine stand out more.

In addition, a 20-inch RS spider design wheel is adopted as standard equipment, and large brake discs (front 360mmx36mm, rear 330mmx22mm) can be installed, so the agility and response of Macan GTS's real sports car is more It was impressive. Porsche surface-coated brakes (PSCB) with a tungsten coating on the surface of the brake disc are available as an option to further enhance deceleration performance.
