    • Official: Porsche reveals the 2014 Porsche Macan S and Macan Turbo

      Well here we finally are. No more teasers, no more spyphotos, no more speculation, just the real deal. Here is the 2014 Porsche Macan Turbo and S model. The turbo features a 400 horsepower 3.6 liter twin turbo V6 and starts at $72,300. The Macan S has a smaller 3.0 liter twin turbo V6 with 340 horsepower and starts at a much more affordable $49,900. Both the S and the Turbo features the same 7-speed Porsche PDK dual clutch transmission.



      Enjoy the official specifications and photos below. PorscheBoost will post real life pictures and impressions from the Los Angeles International Auto Show later today.

        That steering wheel is amazing, much better than either that they are currently using. Hope it makes its way across the whole model line soon. The multifunction wheel is nice, but those stupid thumb buttons for the DCT are appalling. The sport design wheel with the paddles is also beautiful, but there's no other functions on the wheel. This seems to blend both, and it looks better than either to boot

        Overall love this car, hoping it sells well.

        This is going to fly off lots. I see no reason to opt for the cayenne.

        I'm trying to figure out how one justifies a macan turbo over the s which is... turbo.

        Turbo has more standard equipment.

        You can look at it this way. You get Cayenne Turbo performance with the Macan Turbo, for almost $40k less.

        If you add the Turbo standard equipment to the S, it is ~$65k. Most of which is must have options.

        Even less money for the Macan S with a tune....

        I really love this car , spec wise ,look wise , interior wise, perfromance wise , well , in every way. I find it a good option for a daily .

        Only one thing I don't understand , why does the S has the lower body parts (like the rear bumper) painted in cheap plastic black ? Not matching it with the rest of the colors gives me a really cheap feel . I'm not familiar with Porsche's car configurator , but is it possible to get the Turbo body pkg on a regular S ?

        Prestige/badge, power without tune, high build level as noted above. For the minimal build I'm going to do, I'd rather tune the 3.0 like a Panamera S and keep $12k in my pocket.

        Not sure which specific cars you are viewing, but the launch turbo had the optional rear skid plate, while the S didn't. You can add the plates to either model. The side shields can be ordered in body color or CF as options.

        This car I'm looking at :http://www.bimmerboost.com/images/im...llpaperi-1.jpg to be more specific. I know you can get the skid plate in aluminium but the rest is black opposed to Turbo one where it's painted all in the same color as the exterior.

        MSRP is a tick over $59k. Deal is through a family connection; not sure what if any discount I'll get but it's better than anything I can negotiate at my local dealer on one of the early allocations. Click here to enlarge

        Well congrats man. I'm wondering if I should replace my Cayenne with this. Maybe I'll sell my M3 and just enjoy the Macan as a do everything car.
