PORSCHE MACAN T COMING TO AUSTRALIA

Porsche Macan T is the first four-door sportscar that will bear the special designation,
which was previously reserved for the 911 and 718 models.

The letter T stands for ‘Touring’ and identifies models that offer authentic driving
experience thanks to precise tuning, exclusive equipment and efficient engines.

The 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine has an output of 195kW and 400Nm and
drives through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and the Porsche Traction
Management all-wheel drive system.

Porsche Macan T accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds and reaches a top speed
of 232 km/h with the standard Sport Chrono Package including the mode switch and Sport
Response button on the steering wheel.

It has steel suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management as standard. The
body is lowered by 15mm. The anti-roll bars on the front axle are more rigid and the
chassis tuning has been optimised to create very responsive steering behaviour and agile
handling.

The Porsche Traction Management has been specially designed with a rear-wheel bias.
Adding adaptive air suspension with PASM and lowering the body by a further 10 mm is
also an option – a new feature for Macan models with four-cylinder engines. Porsche
Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) can also be added: the system has been adapted to the
dynamic characteristics of the T model and further sharpens the driving dynamics.

Painted in Agate Grey Metallic on the front, flank and rear of the Macan T differentiate the
vehicle from other models in the series. The exclusive contrast colour can be seen on the
painted front trim, exterior mirrors, side blades, roof spoiler and logos on the rear.

The side blades feature the ‘Macan T’ logo in Black. Twenty-inch Macan S wheels,
exclusively in dark titanium are standard.

Customers can choose from a range of 13 plain, metallic and special colours for the
exterior.

Inside, Macan T has eight-way electrically adjustable heated sports seats feature exclusive
upholstery based on the Black leather package. The front headrests have an embossed
Porsche crest.

The centres of the front seats and the outer rear seats can also be delivered with Sport-
Tex Stripe pattern as part of the Macan T interior package with the contrasting colour from
the exterior continuing inside the vehicle in the form of decorative silver stitching on the
seats, headrests and steering wheel.

Standard is a GT heated sports steering wheel and the Sport Chrono stopwatch in the
upper part of the dashboard. The door entry guards come in black aluminium as standard
and feature a Macan T logo.

Optional features include the multifunction GT sports steering wheel in Race-Tex with
carbon trims and an ioniser.
