Porsche India has launched the top-of-the-line Macan Turbo with the Performance Package at INR 14,058,000 (prices ex showroom Maharashtra). After the performance enhancement, the twin-turbocharged, 3.6-litre V6 engine delivers 440 hp (324 kW); 40 hp (30 kW) more than the standard Macan Turbo. The car now accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds (a reduction of 0.4 seconds), and achieves a new top speed of 272 km/h (an increase of 6 km/h). The engine comes mated to a seven-speed PDK double-clutch transmission.
The maximum torque has also risen to 600 Nm (an increase of 50 Nm) and is available to the driver across a rev range of between 1,500 and 4,500 rpm. This also increases the tractive force: In Sport Plus mode, the time taken to accelerate from 80 km/h to 120 km/h has dropped to 2.9 seconds (a reduction of 0.2 seconds). The Performance Package also includes a newly developed brake system, lowered body, controlled sports chassis, Sport Chrono Package and sports exhaust system; all fitted as standard.
The front axle features grooved brake discs with a diameter of 390 millimetres, which are 30 millimetres larger than the brake discs fitted on the non-Performance Package variant of the Macan Turbo. The discs are gripped by six-piston brake callipers completed with a red paint finish. The Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which lowers the vehicle by 15 millimetres in its sportiest setting, along with the air suspension setup with self-levelling function and height adjustment, lowered by ten millimetres, is available as standard.
To customise the Macan Turbo with Performance Package, a range of tailored equipment options are available, such as the Turbo Exterior Package. Features available with this package include 21-inch wheels in the 911 Turbo design with lateral spokes painted in high-gloss black, LED main headlights equipped with PDLS Plus and numerous other elements finished in black. The Turbo Interior Package features a black leather interior with Alcantara elements, colour appliqué in numerous areas and carbon elements such as the door entry guards with the model logo lit up in white.
