Arriving as the lightest SUV in the Porsche lineup, the Macan—no suffix for this one—is the new entry-level variant of Porsche’s small SUV. Like the Macan S that Consumer Reports tested, this new version comes with standard all-wheel drive and a seven-speed automated manual transmission. But this new variant uses a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, while its big brothers all employ turbocharged V6 engines.

This small four-cylinder puts out 252 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque, enabling a claimed 0-to-60 mph time of 6.1 seconds when equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package and its launch control feature. The EPA-rated fuel economy is 20 mpg in the city, 25 mpg on the highway, and 22 mpg combined. That should be an improvement over the 19 mpg overall we got with the 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 we tested.

With a base price of $47,500, you’d be saving at least $5,000 compared to the 3.0-liter turbo. Deliveries are expected to start this July.

But if a Porsche SUV is still sacrilege for you, check out the updated classics making their U.S. debuts at the New York auto show. The first is the updated Boxster roadster, renamed 718 Boxster and 718 Boxster S. It’s still the same terrific Boxster but slightly freshened. And, for the first time the Boxster will use a four-cylinder engine.

Unlike the four-cylinder turbo in the Macan, which is based on a Volkswagen/Audi family engine, this is a purely Porsche-designed powerplant and of course, a horizontally opposed configuration (aka Boxer). The 718 Boxster uses a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that will generate 300 hp; the S version gets a 2.5-liter turbo four-cylinder that makes 350 hp. Compared with the last-generation Boxster, that’s a bump of 35 hp for each car and by the nature of the turbo, these will have more readily available power at lower revs. While EPA figures aren’t yet available, the new cars are said to be 14 percent more efficient on the European driving cycle than the old ones.

With more power comes more performance: 0-to-60 mph is 4.5 seconds for the Boxster and 4.0 seconds for the S, when each car is equipped with the seven-speed automated manual and Sport Chrono package.

Under the revised skin, which features larger air intakes to cool the turbo engines, is an all-new suspension and larger brakes. Both models offer a standard six-speed manual, or the seven-speed automated manual. The cars will begin arriving in June, with an MSRP of $56,000 for the 718 Boxster and $68,400 for the 718 Boxster S.

Finally, the granddaddy of the Porsche line, the 911, gets a new trim, the 911 R which is aimed at club racers.

At 3,021 pounds, the 911 R is the lightest 911 available, and the 500-hp, 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine should be able to get it moving with more than a bit of immediacy.

Porsche claims the 0-to-60 mph run will take a mere 3.7 seconds. Halting from speed is courtesy of the standard ceramic composite brakes. Some advantages of these brakes are their lower weight, compared with metal brake rotors, their resistance to heat and their longer working life between pad/rotor changes.

Additional weight savings come from reduced interior insulation, foregoing of the rear seats, and the omission of air conditioning and the audio system. Those last two items can be added back at no charge.

Even priced at $184,900, the 991 total production run will go fast—as seems appropriate.
