Sime Darby Auto Performance unveils the new Porsche Macan GTS
More performance, more driving dynamics and more driving fun
KUALA LUMPUR, 17 June 2016 – The new Porsche Macan GTS, with a refined exterior and engine was introduced today at the Porsche Centre Sungai Besi by Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP), the importer of Porsche vehicles in Malaysia. The new Porsche Macan GTS provides enhanced performance, better driving dynamics and is a more fun drive.

Like all Porsche models that bear these three letters, the new GTS version of the Macan is inspired by motor racing. A reengineered chassis, 20 hp more power than the Macan S and reinforced brakes supply the wherewithal. In terms of power and torque, its 360 hp and 500 Nm place the Macan GTS1) between the Macan S2) and the Macan Turbo3). The technical basis for this comprises the three-litre V6 bi-turbo engine of the Macan S accompanied by the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and Porsche Traction Management (PTM) with flexible power distribution between front and rear axles. Thus, the Macan GTS completes the sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds – and in just 5.0 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package with a top speed is 256 km/h. Features in the typical GTS styling round off the sporty impression.

The Macan GTS combines a high level of typical Porsche driving dynamics with outstanding everyday utility. A sportier tuning of the PASM chassis that is lowered by 15 millimetres, along with 20-inch wheels in RS Spyder design with matt black paint finish and mixed tyres are features of the GTS equipment. Also in keeping with the style are the standard GTS sport seats with Alcantara centre panels, additional Alcantara trim in the interior as well as a full-sounding sports exhaust system. The Macan GTS features the new Porsche Communication Management (PCM). Together with the optional Connect Plus module, the high-quality multi-touch monitor offers online navigation with real-time traffic information and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay®.

The Macan GTS can be recognised at first glance by exterior accentuation in black – in high gloss above the waistline and in a lustrous matt finish in the lower areas of the body – and by a special version of the Sport Design package, also in GTS-specific colouring, that comes as a standard feature. The LED headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus is available as an option for the Macan GTS, which guarantees optimum illumination of the road under all conditions.

Thanks to its special qualities, the new Macan GTS offers even more driving fun. With this model, Porsche once again stamps its claim that the Macan is the thoroughbred sports car among compact SUVs.

The base price for the new Macan GTS starts from RM 710,000 which includes a four-year warranty and free service plus maintenance package. The price stated includes all applicable duties but excludes registration fee, road tax and insurance. Specifications and prices are subject to change without prior notice.
