Time to burn some oil.
The Porsche Macan is a pretty capable sport-oriented crossover, and it can thank the big crest sitting on its hood and trunklid for that. The entire model line has a pretty healthy dose of power to pair up with some superb driving dynamics, but TechArt has even more weaponry for the torque-filled Macan S Diesel.
Instead of the Porsche Macan Turbo being the only model to benefit from TechArt, the German tuner has developed the Power Kit TA B95/SD1 for the 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 engine in the Macan S Diesel. The new Power Kit is based on the TechTronic engine management system that improves performance by altering a number of different variables without affecting the factory protective functions or the diagnostic capabilities. The system is activated by the press of the ‘Sport’ or ‘Sport Plus’ button, instantly increasing performance.
In the new Porsche Macan S Diesel, the TechArt TA B95/SD1 works its electronic magic by bumping the factory 254 bhp and 428 lb-ft. of torque up to 300 horsepower from 3,300 to 3,700 RPM and 494 lb-ft. of torque from 2,400 to 3,100 RPM. The modest gain comes with a meaty powerband for performance in any situation. With the added power, the Porsche Macan S Diesel can hit 62 mph in 5.7 seconds and 99 mph in 15.7 seconds in Sport Plus mode. Top speed is also pushed back a bit to 147 mph.
The new TechArt TA B95/SD1 for the Porsche Macan S Diesel comes with a two-year limited warranty as well as an additional warranty on engine and gearbox damage.
