  • 2017 Porsche Macan GTS First Drive

    As capable as the Cayenne and Macan are, the Porsche SUVs will never get track-focused GT variants like their sports car siblings. That’s the word of Porsche engineer Andreas Preuninger, who leads development of the automaker’s GT sports cars like the 911 GT3 and Cayman GT4. Speaking with Car and Driver, Preuninger explained that the GT cars, not to be mistaken with the GTS cars which already include Cayenne and Macan GTS models, are always derived from actual competition cars. “The credibility of the GT car is based on direct bloodline to the race cars,” Preuninger...

  • 2017 Porsche Macan GTS

The vehicles typically offer a slight bump in power coupled with suspension tuned more for the race track than for comfort.
