Porsche announced on Tuesday the introduction of the S model for the facelift Macan,  an S model which will come equipped with a new 3.0-liter 6 turbocharged gasoline engine.

The new powerplant is tad punchier than the one available until now. It has a power output rated at 354 ps and a maximum torque of 480 Nm. These specifications account for an increase of 14 ps and 20 Nm compared with the previous model.

Porsche says that fitting the optional Sport Chrono Package on this SUV brings the zero to 100 kph (62 mph) acceleration time down to 5.1 seconds, an improvement of 0.1 seconds compared to the model it replaces. The top speed of the car in this configuration is rated at 254 kph (158 mph).

When compared to the outgoing Macan S, this new version also comes with newly tuned chassis, new spring forks on the front chassis and tuned sway bars. Braking power has been improved as well, with Porsche engineers working on every component of the system, from discs to brake pedal feel.

At the interior, the Macan S benefits from all the changes made when the facelift was introduced, starting with the 10.9-inch full-HD touchscreen and ending with the Wi-Fi hotspot. The options list for the model is also extensive and includes the GT sports steering wheel of the 911, Traffic Jam Assist, and a heated windshield.

The German manufacturer did not say when the new Macan S will be made available for purchase nor did it say how much it will cost.
