After a few teasers, Porsche has finally released info on its 2015 Macan crossover ahead of its LA Auto Show debut. Starting out, Porsche will release two versions – the Macan S and the Macan Turbo. The S model will be powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine good for 340 HP, allowing it to sprint from 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds before topping out at 156 mph. The Turbo sports more impressive specs with its 400-hp twin-turbo 3.6-liter V6 engine that has a 0-60 mph tim of 4.6 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 164 mph.
Providing stopping power to both models is six-piston monobloc fixed-caliper brakes live up front, grabbing 13.78-inch discs on the S model and tremendous 14.17-inch discs on the Macan Turbo. All wheel drive is also offered on both, with Porsche Traction Management (PTM) equipped on all as well. The inside is just as flashy as the outside with a standard Piano Black interior package and Alcantara inserts on the seats, while the Turbo gets bumped up with leather, brushed aluminum and 18-way power front seats. The Macan S will start at $49,900 with the Turbo starting at $72,300.
