Porsche’s Macan hits the test track

Here’s Porsche’s forthcoming Macan going for it at the R&D centre in Weissach ahead of its public unveiling in Los Angeles on November 20.

Sharing the same Volkswagen Group MLB platform as the new Audi Q5, the Macan has an identical wheelbase of 2,807 mm, but is marginally longer at 4,675 mm, with a width of 1,923 mm and height of 1,628 mm, and a DIN kerb weight starting at 1,898 kg for the S Diesel variant compared to the SQ5 TDI‘s 1,920 kg.

Three versions will be offered at launch, beginning with the Macan S, which is propelled by a 3.0-litre V6 engine developing 250 kW (340 hp) 460 Nm of torque, enough for a 0-100 km/h sprint time of 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 254 km/h (158 mph). The Macan S Diesel follows, with a 3.0-litre V6 unit producing 190 kW (258 hp) and 580 Nm, allowing 100 km/h to happen in 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 226 km/h (140 mph).

Finally, there’s the flagship Macan Turbo. With a twin-turbocharged 3.6-litre powerplant churning out 294 kW (400 hp) and 550 Nm, 100 km/h is dispatched with in 4.8 seconds and top speed is 269 km/h (167 mph).

We’ve also added a screencap from the video showing the Macan’s interior.
