To put its latest crossover model firmly in the area of the “car that drives as if it were on rails” stereotype, Porsche has opted to show us in their latest video how the model sticks to the road.
The company has opted to release a clip that sheds some light on how the Macan can handle just about anything you can throw at it – with the aid of its alphabet abbreviations, of course. The interesting achievement here comes from CGI though – as the German premium sports car maker has brought us under the road to see from underneath the car how it handles – it’s a mechanical dissection at its cinematographic best.
If you don’t remember much about the recently introduced baby Cayenne, we’ll give you the essentials. The model was introduced around a year ago during the Los Angeles Auto Show and is 4699 mm long, 1923 mm wide and 1624 mm tall – putting it firmly into compact crossover territory. The model has been technically based on the Audi Q5 and comes with a full compliment of engines: the Macan S has under the hood a V6 3.0-liter twin-turbo with 340 HP (250 kW) mated to a double-clutch seven-speed automatic transmission; the Macan S Diesel comes with a V6 3.0-liter turbo churning out 258 HP (190 kW) and delivering a fuel economy of 6.1 to 6.3 liters and the flagship Macan Turbo that makes use of the V6 3.6-liter twin-turbo that delivers 400 HP (294 kW) – good enough for a 0 to 62 mph jump stretching just 4.8 seconds (4.6s with Sport Chrono).
