Who Says Four Doors Can’t Be Sporty?

For the ultimate in luxury and performance, consider the new Porsche Panamera Edition. With four doors, loads of interior room and greater comfort than ever before, one might be excused for thinking this is just another luxury boat that provides a nice ride but isn’t much when it comes to performance. Now consider that this is a Porsche, a name synonymous with performance and a thrilling driving experience. By not being satisfied with the status quo, Porsche engineers and designers have created a car that reconciles all the contradictions that come with the thought of a sedan that’s at home on the racetrack. See the personality and feel the performance of the new Panamera Edition with a visit to Porsche of Tucson.

Fall in Love With the Look, Stay for the Drive

One look at the new Panamera Edition is all it takes to recognize a creation made from a love of driving. The sublime design is made to cut through the wind and maximize downforce while delivering the unmistakable Porsche look. Nineteen-inch wheels provide a footprint that was made for attacking curves, while the Porsche Active Suspension Management System uses sensors to continually adjust the dampers and reduce body roll. Electronic power steering delivers just the right amount of touch so you cannot only feel the road, you can feel in complete control. Utilizing a naturally aspirated 3.6L V-6, the Panamera develops 310 horsepower and 295 pound feet of torque, or enough to rocket you from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.0 seconds on the way to a top speed of 160 mph. A standard 7-speed transmission moves effortlessly through the gears.

Best Seat Belongs to the Driver

Although all four premium leather seats in the Porsche Panamera Edition are luxurious and comfortable, the best one undoubtedly belongs to the driver. With all gauges in direct line-of-sight with the road and an ascending center console delivering even more important vehicle information, the driver is in complete control of this modern driving machine. Sit back in luxury and rest your head against the Porsche crest, embroidered on all four headrests. The Porsche Communication Management infotainment system is your source for audio, navigation and hands free communication utilizing a large 7-inch touchscreen. A Bose surround sound system envelopes the driver and passengers in concert quality sound with 585 watts of power and 14 speakers. Test-drive the new Panamera Edition today at Porsche of Tucson.

Hits 60 MPH in Just 5.0 Seconds

The 2016 Porsche Macan GTS is a compact Sport Utility Vehicle that puts emphasis on the word “Sport.” Powered by a 3.0L twin-turbo V6, the Macan GTS delivers 360 horsepower and a spine tingling 369 pound feet of torque. That’s enough oomph to hit 60 mph from a standing stop in just 5.0 seconds on the way to a top speed of 159 mph. Porsche Traction Management helps you keep all that power on the road by automatically distributing the power between the front and rear axle as needed. Sensors are continually monitoring the wheel rotation speeds, g force demands and the steering angle to help keep the rubber on the asphalt. If you’re looking for a fun commuting vehicle or something with a little sass to haul the kids around town, stop by Porsche of Tucson and check out the new Macan GTS.

Efficiency Measures Help Skip Trips to the Pump

Porsche has integrated a number of fuel efficiency measures to help provide the best possible mileage in the sporty Macan GTS. Auto Start/Stop automatically switches the engine off when you come to a red light, then starts up again as soon as you release the brake. A coasting feature helps save more fuel by decoupling the transmission from the engine during flat or downhill runs. The vehicle coasts freely without the benefit of engine braking, helping maximize fuel efficiency. Innovative technology with regards to aerodynamics, thermal management and electrical system recuperation are other areas where Porsche maximizes fuel efficiency.

Air Suspension System Delivers Cloud-like Ride

Choose the air suspension system equipped with Porsche Active Suspension Management and you not only get a ride that smooths out all the bumps in the road, you have the ability to lower the ride height to get the most dynamic performance possible. You can switch between three different levels depending on road conditions and your driving desires. PASM helps you stay in control by utilizing electronic damping to read the road conditions and adjust the suspension appropriately. Damping helps reduce body roll and skid when going through corners aggressively.

Communication Management System Controls Connectivity

The 7-inch Porsche Communication Management touchscreen controls all your navigation, communication and audio systems. An integrated sensor even responds to gestures, allowing you to keep your eyes focused on the road. Steering wheel controls also let you make phone calls, flip through radios stations and control your phone without losing control. The Porsche Macan GTS is one of the most popular Porsche models in America. See why with a test drive at Porsche of Tucson.
