The updated Porsche Macan SUV has been officially launched in India with a starting price tag of INR 69.98 lakh for its base model that is powered by a 4-cylinder petrol engine. The top-end Macan S with a V6 engine comes with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 85.03 lakh. Porsche has tried to keep the prices in check to make the Macan available to a wider buyer base.

Mechanically, the base model of the Porsche Macan SUV comes in a pack with a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo petrol engine that develops 252HP of maximum power with 370Nm of peak torque. The Macan S variant is powered by a 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 petrol engine, which churns out 354HP of maximum power with 480Nm of peak torque.

The performance of the car can be imagined by looking at its remarkable performance figures as the V6 model can sprint from 0-100 kph in just 5.3 seconds, which is 1.4 seconds quicker than the four-cylinder Macan. The Macan S has a company-claimed top speed of 254 kph.

Coming to the exterior changes, the Macan facelift comes with an LED light bar that connects the taillights. At the front, the car has got new LED headlights with the signature Porsche four-point daytime running lights along with a redesigned bumper. The big interior addition that the car gets is in the form of Porsche Communication Management System which comes featured in the 10.9-inch, full HD touchscreen infotainment system. The buyers will also have an option for the GT sports steering wheel that will get a Sport response button.

Porsche 911 GT2 RS, a limited production model from the leading sports car manufacturer, recently entered India with a price tag of INR 3.88 Crore (ex-showroom). The number of units allotted to the country will be more than one for sure.

GT2 RS made its official debut in Goodwood last year, claiming a mouth-watering top speed of 340 kph, making this variant the most powerful road-legal Porsche 911 in India. The brand is offering a very powerful, 3.8L six-cylinder, twin-turbocharged petrol engine, producing 686 BHP of maximum power and 700 Nm of torque.

The numbers are even more magical as 911 GT2 RS takes just 2.8 seconds to sprint from 0-100 kph. The track-ready car comes with class-leading features like independent active suspension that controls damping at each wheel, according to the road or track status.

Porsche makes things even more interesting with their torque vectoring system that helps each wheel claim the required amount of traction. Buyers will also get rear wheel steering, stability management, carbon ceramic brakes and much more in comparison to a regular road-ready Porsche 911. This typical variant claims 6:47.3 record timing for the Nurburgring race track.

The car rivals Audi R8, Nissan GT-R and Mercedes AMG GT R in India and thus, GT3 must have something special that made Karthikeyan fall in love for itself. Porsche 911 GT3 looks more or less similar to a standard 911 but keen eyes would notice those smoked lights, bigger wheels and huge rear wing for added styling and loads of downforce.

Aero package comes as standard on 911 GT3 while interior differences includes carbon fiber parts, aluminum inserts and leather upholstery. Buyers can choose from three different seat types while getting carbon fiber bucket seats will save maximum amount of weight from this package.

Porsche-911-Turbo-S-Exclusive-Series-1

The Indian market brings Porsche cars as CBUs and thus, the difference in the price of both cars in US will be doubled. Turbo S is currently priced in India at INR 2.68 Crore.

Porsche-911-Turbo-S-Exclusive-Series-2

This makes Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive good for an approximate price tag of INR 3.61 Crore. The super high price tag will bring the same 3.9 liter, twin turbocharged engine producing 607 PS and 750 Nm of torque. The values are 27 PS and 50 Nm more than the Turbo S.

This makes the limited edition Porsche good for 0-100 kmph in 2.9 seconds and 330 kmph of top speed. It even comes with Prosche rear wheel steering as standard. The engine is mated to a 7-Speed dual-clutch transmission.

Porsche-911-Turbo-S-Exclusive-Series-3

The interior of the Porsche 911 Turbo S Exclusive carries double layer of leather all around the seats. The exterior theme is followed into the interior as you can spot stripes and contrast stitching at most parts.

Those buying the Porsche limited edition will get a matching watch that’s made out of the same carbon fiber that has been used in the car’s manufacturing. This then again limits the number of watches made out of the same to 500.
