Welcome to Cool Cars, and best of all, welcome to Level Two. This week's edition of Cool Cars on Giltrap TV outlines how we have made sure you can safely visit our dealerships. We have heaps of Cool Cars and Great Deals, including our feature car: the new Porsche Macan GTS.
When you add the GTS badge to the Porsche Macan, it equals one of my favourite cars. The Macan has been a favourite in our house for more than five years, among the many that have called our driveway home, we have owned four GTS models. I say 'we' because whenever my partner gets a Macan GTS, she says I spend more time driving it than she does.
For me, the Macan is the perfect balance: it is an SUV, but it still looks sporty; It's not too big, but it's not dinky either; the interior design is spot on and thanks to excellent ergonomics everything is in the right place. Key to all those qualities is that the Macan is not just German, but Porsche-engineered, so you know the quality is exceptional.
The GTS comes with a sports-design package, RS Spyder design wheels, tinted lights, sports seat, and Alcantara trim, plus Porsche active suspension management (PASM) combined with a 15mm lower ride height. It's the perfect platform for the new 2.9-litre twin-turbo v6 producing 280Kw (380hp) and 520Nm of torque.
Then there are the intangible qualities; from the way it sits so perfectly on its wheels and looks so comfortable in its own skin. Then there is the emotional rush delivered by the extra-sporty character and a roguish charm not often found in a German car. These things put a cheeky smile on my face every single time I drive it.
So, the Macan GTS is like that one childhood classmate who had it all: good looking, top of the class and a star on the sports field; they had no problem getting a date, and they charmed teachers and parents equally as well. A golden child, but far from being goody-two shoes, they are still naughty enough to be loads of fun. Even if you tried, you still can't help but love their company, just like the Macan GTS.
Check out the road test in this week's Cool Cars to see what I mean. The Giltrap TV team have also assembled some great coverage of the upcoming Land Rover Defender. Of course, there are some Great Deals, from across the Giltrap Group.
Enjoy Racing Local Tonight.
