Australian T3 - - TECH LIFE -

1/ Turbo-charged

The Ma­can Turbo’s 3.6-litre V6 cat­a­pults it to 100km/h in 4.8 sec­onds. That’s enough ac­cel­er­a­tion to put a bat up the night­dress of Porsche’s iconic 911. It’s hardly sur­pris­ing, with

298kW packed into a com­pact SUV.

2/ All-road ex­cel­lence

A fam­ily es­tate, sports car and off-roader all rolled into one car? That’s only pos­si­ble thanks to the Ma­can’s clever ac­tive sus­pen­sion sys­tem, known as PASM. It con­tin­u­ally ad­justs damp­ing force to all four wheels, al­low­ing the Ma­can Turbo to seam­lessly shift from au­to­bahn

mo­tor­ing to coun­try track ma­noeu­vring.

3/ Teched-up

The Ma­can gets Porsche’s lat­est in-car kit in­clud­ing Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Man­age­ment’s seven-inch touch­screen in­ter­face. Op­tions in­clude a 40GB hard drive for up to 5,000 lo­cally stored MP3 tracks, a dig­i­tal TV tuner, DAB ra­dio and 3D map­ping, with real-time

traf­fic data in­cluded.
