The darling of spy photographers is finally going to be officially revealed and Porsche has already started putting teaser videos for the Macan. The Macan is going to be a very important product for Porsche considering how crazy we are getting for SUV's. This is going to be smaller than the Cayenne and will be Porsche's answer to the Land Rover Evoque and the Audi Q5.
While Porsche may have had access to the VW parts bin and it may share some underpinnings with the Q5, rest assured this is a proper Porsche with completely different exterior/interior and even the fact that it has the Porsche 7-speed PDK (try saying it in full form).
The petrol range will have v6's and there will be a diesel. For India and worldwide this will be the Porsche that will bring in the sales as the Cayenne is all set to give up the tag of being Porsche's biggest cash cow. The Macan will be spacious and styling wise it is a more compact Cayenne with the traditional Porsche styling cues thrown in. It looks sleek and we have no doubt that it will be fun to drive. More details to be revealed at its LA Auto Show debut.
