The Porsche Macan Turbo Is Back With More Power

The Porsche Macan Turbo

This is the new Porsche Macan Turbo and here are the headlines: a new light bar in full width behind. Just kidding. There is a little more behind it than just LED nonsense. Porsche has indeed found a replacement for the shift: German wisdom.

The Macan Turbo has lost its 3.6-liter twin-turbo V6 engine and traded a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6. It is the same hot-V engine with turbochargers in the cylinder blocks for better throttle response as in the Panamera, Cayenne and the Audi RS4.

So same engine layout and over half a liter less displacement. And yet the performance has increased from just under 400 hp to 434 hp. With some help from the launch control and the optional Sport Chrono package, 0-62 mph in 4.3 seconds will be done and dusted off 0.3 seconds earlier. Of course it’s an optional extra. That’s a Porsche, people.

What is standard, are better, more beautiful brakes. “Better,” because they are tungsten carbide coated steel rotors that reduce wear, improve stopping distance, and apparently significantly reduce brake dust, so your precious alloys always look elegant. And “prettier”? Yes, thanks to the coating, which gives the windows an eerie shine.

Macanspotters, if there are such people, can also spot the new ultimate version by looking for the redesigned front air intakes and a double roof spoiler that is a bit tamer than the name Pimp My Ride suggests. Boo. Inside are multiple adjustable electric seats, a better touchscreen (like the rest of the updated Macan family) and as usual space for five people.

As a entry-level Porsche SUV, the Macan Turbo is the cheapest way to get into a Porsche with the highest range. It’s £ 68,530, which makes it a bit cheaper than TG’s most popular Fast’n’Mall SUV, the Merc-AMG GLC 63 S. On the other hand, the AMG is whopping 60 horsepower and makes a noise like a thunderstorm barefoot on some Lego. Can you set a price for it?

So, which one would you have?

13 Fun Facts About Owls

13 Fun Facts About Owls

Owls are arousing birds that attract birds’ attention and curiosity easily. These facts can help clear some of their mysteries and reveal what an owl really is.

Many species of owls have asymmetrical ears. When the owl’s head is at different heights, its ears can determine the location of sounds in multiple dimensions. Ready, aim, shoot.

The eyes of an owl are not real “pupils gerçek. The tubular eyes are completely immobile, providing binocular vision that fully focuses on prey and enhances depth perception.

Owls can turn their necks 270 degrees. The blood collection system collects blood to strengthen their brains and eyes when the neck movement interrupts circulation.

A group of owls is called parliament. This is C.S. Lewis’s description of an owl meeting in the Chronicles of Narnia.

Owls hunt other owls. Great Horned Owls are the greatest hunter of the small Barred Owl.

The smallest owl in the world is the Elf Owl, which is 5-6 inches tall and weighs about 1 gram gram. Apparently, the largest North American owl is the Great Gray Owl, 32 inches tall.

Northern Hawk Owl, primarily by sight, can detect a mole to eat half a mile away.

In the fat years when mice are abundant, monogamous Boreal Owls tend to be hopeless. Because easy hunting means less work for parents who feed young people, while men are seen with at least one woman, three are caught mating with females.

Barn owls swallow their prey completely – skin, bone and all – and eat up to 1,000 mice every year.

Northern Saw-whet Owls can travel long distances on large water bodies. One appeared in Montauk, 70 miles from the shore near New York.

Not all owls! Barn owls make hissing sounds, Eastern Screech-Owl whining like a horse, and Saw-whet Owls look like an old whetstone ending in a saw. Hence the name.

Owls are zygodactyl; this means that his feet had two forward-facing fingers and two backward-facing fingers. Unlike other zygodactyl birds, however, owls can rotate one of their toes forward to help them grasp and walk.
