We have always liked Porsche’s GTS models. With all of the fancy suspension and brakes of their more expensive models, they are a sensible choice between the standard and turbo trim levels. That is why we were happy to see a press release and YouTube video released by Porsche earlier today outlining the 2017 Macan GTS.[youtube id=”lUQY1Z0RbYk” align=”center” mode=”normal” autoplay=”no” maxwidth=”680″]
This new model is easily recognizable thanks to gloss and matte black trim and wheels. A GTS-specific interior offers leather upholstery with Alcantara backrests. For $67,200 your GTS will arrive with Apple CarPlay capabilities and eight speakers. The 3.0L V6 has been tuned to deliver 360 hp (20 more than the Macan S), but the real treat is having 369 lb-ft of torque available from 1650 to 4000 rpm. This much torque available to all wheels will make the GTS a perfect fit between Macan S and Turbo. Borrowing larger brakes from the Turbo, the stability and suspension are specifically calibrated for a 10mm lower ride height.
If you need a Crossover than can reach 60 mph in only 4.8 seconds, perhaps a GTS is in your future.
