The Power

The new 2015 Macan S is equipped with V6 twin-turbo engine that provides superb power. The Macan Turbo, a more refined and powerful model is likewise available, and delivers smoother power, and brisk acceleration comparable with current sports car models. Additionally, the turbo versions use a very responsive engine that is not held up by huge turbo lags.

About Calvin Escobar

The Car scene is so diverse Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota's and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.

At Autowise, we envision ourselves as not just a automobile blog or an automobile news website, instead we see our website as a platform to connect all automobile enthusiast and provide them with all the information they need.
