Cool Tyres in Dubai

When watching racecars on TV we always hear commentators talking about getting heat into the tyres. But why do tyres need heat, and can you have too much of a good thing?

Arriving in Porsche Centres in the UK and Ireland from April 2014, the Macan brings proven Porsche values of maximum acceleration and braking performance, vast engine power, extreme agility and optimum steering precision for the first time to the compact sports utility vehicle (SUV) segment. And all of these features are combined with a high level of comfort and versatility. 

As the first Porsche in the compact SUV segment, the Macan will set new standards in terms of dynamic performance, on both paved streets and uneven terrain. This is because the Macan combines the typical handling characteristics that Porsche has represented right from the outset.

The sporting DNA of the Macan, as with all Porsche vehicles, is immediately recognisable in the design, with several styling cues being taken from other Porsche sports cars and then enhanced for the Macan. It is therefore clear to see from the very first glance that the Porsche Macan is the first compact SUV that is also a sports car. The Macan will be available in three versions from launch. Technical highlights include Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive and the Porsche PDK double-clutch transmission fitted as standard. The body conceals highly efficient six-cylinder engines, which provide powerful propulsion while achieving favourable fuel consumption figures. 

The Macan S is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 bi-turbo engine that delivers 340hp and accelerates from 0 to 100kph in 5.2 seconds. The 3.6-litre V6 bi-turbo engine in the Macan Turbo produces 400hp and accelerates the vehicle to 100kph in 4.8 seconds. With a turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine and 258hp, the Macan S Diesel is the long-distance sports car. The engine accelerates from 0 to 100kph in 6.3 seconds.
