Following Porsche’s highly anticipated return to the Singapore Motorshow in 2018, the sports car manufacturer returns once again with an exhilarating line-up of vehicles. From 10th to 13th January 2019 at the Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, Porsche is displaying some of its most exciting models including the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, 718 Boxster and Panamera. Furthermore, for the first time in Singapore, Porsche’s performance-oriented plug-in hybrid models including the Cayenne E-Hybrid and Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo, will be on display.
In addition, the main highlight of this year’s show includes the premiere of the new Macan, which has been further sharpened in terms of design, comfort and driving dynamics. The standard equipment has increased to include a new 10.9-inch Porsche Communication Management (PCM) touchscreen display, LED headlights with four-point day-time running lights and LED brake lights. Visitors to the Singapore Motorshow will be one of the first in Southeast Asia to see the brand-new compact SUV.
Francis Lee, Managing Director of Stuttgart Auto said, “Since its launch in 2014, the compact SUV has been a great success story for Porsche, with over 350,000 Macans delivered globally, and over 1,300 in Singapore. The new Macan combines typical Porsche performance on any terrain, coupled with a high degree of everyday practicality that impresses and appeals to our customers in Singapore. Thus, we believe the new Macan will be even more well-received with its new standard equipment and refreshed design.”
Premiere of the new Macan
The new Macan
The new model has been significantly enhanced in terms of design, comfort and driving dynamics, allowing the Porsche Macan to remain the only true sports car model in the compact SUV segment.
The Macan comes with an efficient 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with improved combustion chamber geometry. It delivers a performance of 185 kW (252 hp), can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds with Sport Chrono Package and reach a top speed of 227 km/h. On the other hand, the new Macan S, when equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package, can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.1 seconds, and has a top speed is 254 km/h.
The compact SUV stays true to the Porsche design DNA with its latest facelift – the new three-dimensional rear LED light strip with integrated PORSCHE lettering gives it an even sportier appearance. One of the new innovations inside the new Macan is a new dashboard that houses a 10.9-inch touchscreen of the new Porsche Communication Management (PCM), re-designed and re-positioned air vents and the optional GT sports steering wheel familiar from the 911.
The new Macan will be priced starting at SGD 250,088 and Macan S at SGD 288,788*.
Porsche’s plug-in hybrid models at Singapore Motorshow 2019
By 2025, Porsche predicts that around half of the new cars it delivers will be electrically-powered models, whether fully-electric or plug-in hybrids. The Singapore Motorshow 2019 provides a perfect platform to showcase Porsche’s plug-in hybrid models that form part of the brand’s strategy of offering efficient vehicles that also perfectly serve as everyday sports cars.
Henrik Dreier, General Manager – Singapore, Porsche Asia Pacific said: “E-Performance is a key driver of Porsche’s strategy for the future. As we continue our electrification journey towards the launch of our first fully electric sports car, Porsche Taycan, we remain committed to developing new generations of performance-oriented sports cars that remain true to Porsche’s DNA.”
Mission E concept car
A scaled model of the Mission E – the concept car of the model that is now known as the Porsche Taycan – is on display at Singapore Motorshow together with an integrated Augmented Reality (AR) experience that previews the brand’s future all-electric vehicle. The unique application allows users to experience the key features of the car including the design DNA, aerodynamics, and electric drive features.
The Cayenne E-Hybrid combines Sports Utility with a new performance-oriented hybrid strategy that heightens emotionality, while maintaining its day-to-day usability and off-road capabilities. It delivers a system power of 340 kW (462 hp) and 700 Nm from a 3.0-litre bi-turbo V6 and electric motor with a 14.1-kWh battery, through an 8-speed Tiptronic S gearbox. The Cayenne E-Hybrid can travel up to 44 km in electric-only mode.
Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo
The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo combines sustainable e-mobility with dynamic handling and luxurious driving comfort, delivering a system power of 340 kW (462 hp) thanks to the combination of a 2.9-liter V6 gasoline engine with an output of 243 kW (330 hp) and a 100-kW electric motor, delivering 50 km of electric-only range.
Both plug-in hybrid models are perfect illustrations of Porsche’s commitment to E-Performance.
