Designed to address the more expensive versions of the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLK and Range Rover Evoque, an SUV should become the best selling model of Porsche. Eyeing the success of its new model, the brand has launched new versions of designs Macan, including a GTS option. "The GTS versions have already become tradition at Porsche.
