In the Macan Turbo, the 3.6-liter motor puts out a stout 400 horsepower. With the Performance Package, Porsche ups the output 10% to 440 ponies. 

The base Macan is powered by a VW Group-sourced 2.0-liter, 252 horsepower, turbocharged inline-four-cylinder engine. Step up a tier to the Macan S and you get a 3.0 liter, twin-turbo V6 putting out 300 horsepower. Move up another notch to the Macan GTS and you'll get a 360 horsepower version of the V6 found in the S. 

In addition to the extra juice, Performance Package Turbos get larger brakes and a lowered sport chassis. The top spec cars also get Porsche's Sport Chrono Package and sport exhaust as standard.
