The basic premise of any Porsche is power. It's been that way ever since 1948. But there has always been another principle: efficiency. Again, since 1948. We remain committed to both, and we always will.
In addition to our pursuit of efficient engine technologies, such as the turbochargers used across the model range, we routinely rely on innovative, lightweight materials, we are constantly developing our production techniques and functionalities and, as we do so, we are continuously refining our concepts.
How does this benefit you as the driver? Greater agility with increased dynamic performance – and lower fuel consumption. Now that's efficiency.
The Macan once again demonstrates that even high-performance sports cars can achieve comparatively moderate emission values. The state-of-the-art engines of the Macan model range reach their optimum operating temperature soon after start-up, thanks to the rapid heating of the catalytic converter system. Emissions are thereby reduced, while tires optimized for low rolling resistance play their part by lowering fuel consumption.
The gasoline models are equipped with stereo Lambda control circuits. These are used by the electronic engine management to determine the optimum amount of fuel for effective emission control.
