► 2014 Porsche Macan Turbo - Exterior Design
The Macan is the first Porsche model to break into the compact SUV segment
and is poised to set new standards in the field of driving dynamics and
enjoyment -- on both paved streets uneven terrain. The Macan combines the
typical handling characteristics that Porsche has represented right from
the outset: maximum acceleration and braking values, vast engine power,
extreme agility and optimum steering precision. What's more, all of these
features are teamed with a high level of comfort and everyday suitability.
The sporty DNA of the Macan, as with all Porsche vehicles, is also
immediately recognisable in the design. The Sports Utility Vehicle is
unrivalled in its flat and broad profile on the road. The wraparound bonnet
and gently sloping roof line accentuate the overall impression of sporty
elegance and powerful dynamics. Many of the design elements have been taken
from other Porsche sportscars and enhanced for the Macan, making it clear
to see from the very first glance that the Porsche Macan heralds the first
sportscar in the compact SUV segment. The Macan is "Made in Germany",
produced at the Leipzig plant. Porsche has invested 500 million euro in the
plant and has established an entire production line there. The line is set
up to produce around 50,000 vehicles per year.
Three models comprise the Macan product range at market launch. The Macan S
is equipped with a 3.0-litre V6 biturbo
engine delivering 340 bhp (250 kW) and also features an active all-wheel
drive with an electronically controlled, map-controlled multi-plate clutch.
This all-wheel drive is fitted on all Macan models. A seven-speed
double-clutch transmission transfers power as required and almost without
any interruption in tractive force, enabling the vehicle to accelerate from
0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds (or 5.2 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono
package fitted). The vehicle reaches a top speed of 254 km/h, and its
NEDC*) fuel consumption figures are between 9.0 and 8.7 litres/100 km,
which corresponds to a CO2 emissions level of between 212 and 204 g/km.
The Macan S Diesel is the economical long-distance runner of the three
Macan models. Its 3.0-litre V6 turbo
diesel engine achieves NEDC*) fuel consumption figures of between just 6.3
and 6.1 litres/100 km, which corresponds to a CO2 value of between 164 and
159 g/km. Nevertheless, the Macan S Diesel accelerates from 0 to 100 km in
just 6.3 seconds (or 6.1 seconds with the Sport Chrono package fitted)
thanks to its 258-bhp (190-kW) engine, and achieves a top speed of 230
As the top model in the Macan model line, the Macan turbo is set to be the most powerful vehicle in
the compact SUV segment. The 3.6-litre V6 biturbo engine, which is being used in a Porsche
model for the very first time, achieves an unrivalled 400 bhp (294 kW) and
catapults the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds. With the Sport
Chrono package fitted, it is even possible to achieve such a speed in 4.6
seconds. Although the top speed is 266 km/h, the Macan turbo delivers NEDC*) fuel consumption figures of
between just 9.2 and 8.9 litres/100 km, which equates to a CO2 value of
between 216 and 208 g/km.
In Germany the Macan S and Macan S Diesel costs EUR 57.930 Euros, including
VAT. The top model Macan turbo costs EUR
79.826 including VAT. The models can be collected from dealers from 5th of

2011 FMSCI Indian National Motorcycle Road Racing Championship - Power To The Rider
While this video premiered at the Times Auto Show at Pune on 2nd October it
was mainly made at the behest of FMSCI (Federation of MotorSports Club of
India) and was screened at the 2011 National Championship Awards ceremony
at the GRT Grand Convention Centre, Chennai. The video garnered
overwhelming response from riders, racers and factory teams and we were
glad to have bid adieu to every racer in person. This video also features
no1 and no2 champions of year 2011 duking it out for one whole lap as well
as the first race-appearance of the new 2011 Yamaha YZF-R15 version 2.0 in
the hands of Indian expert riders.
We look forward to 2012 racing season with bated breath.
