Porsche has announced a new edition of the Macan Turbo called the Exclusive Performance Edition, with visual tweaks all hand finished by the artisans at Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur.
Red is the theme here. Carmine Red to be specific, at least on the exterior. The colour carefully highlights the front spoiler, rear apron and sideblades. And badge spotters should take note – the ‘Macan Turbo’ badge at the rear also gets the same colour treatment.
Inside, the changes are more obvious, and this time it’s Garnet Red. The seat bolsters are red, as is the contrast stitching, the embroidered ‘turbo’ lettering on the headrests, the seat belts and the ring around the Sport Chrono stopwatch. Even your pocket will enjoy a boost of colour, as the key wallet gets its own splash of Garnet Red.
As a final flourish, ‘Macan Turbo Exclusive Performance Edition’ lettering features on the dash and door entry trim strips.
All of which is useful because it will remind you that you’re in the fastest Macan ... Well, that and the engine, which is unchanged from the Macan Turbo with Performance Package and means you’ve got 440 hp on tap (combined fuel consumption 9.7–9.4 l/100 km; CO2 emissions 224–217 g/km), a 0-62 mph time of just 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 169 mph.
