2014 Porsche Macan Turbo Will Have 370 HP
The Germans are readying new flavors of SUV with the Macan compact, to be produced in Leipzig, Germany from late 2013. And one of these flavors will be the Macan Turbo, yes you heard right, “Turbo”.
This car will share a platform with the Audi Q5 and will also borrow some cylinders. We knew this for some time, but today AutoCar magazine put some interesting figures on the table: 370 bhp from a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine. That’s about 375 PS (HP in metric) and a massive 80 hp increase over a 3.6-liter Cayenne base model.
This is expected to be a brand new unit under Porsche development, not a reconfigured Audi supercharged lump with a couple of turbos stuck on.
The Macan will also reportedly be powered by the first Porsche four-cylinder engine since the 968 was phased out in 1995.
