Porsche Macan – new sketches released image

Porsche has released some new sketches with the upcoming Macan, ahead of the SUV’s public debut scheduled for the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The Porsche Macan has been already caught testing by spy photographers, with absolutely no camouflage on its body, numerous times in the past year so the development of the model is no longer a surprise for anyone. But in an attempt to shed some light on the SUV, the German based automaker has released some new sketches of the model, which are meant to announce its public debut for the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, next month.

The new Porsche Macan is basically a smaller and cheaper version of the Cayenne, which is coming with a sloping roofline, with some taillights probably inspired from the new 911 (991) and with a platform shared with the Audi Q5. The Porsche Macan will go on sale against the Range Rover Evoque and the BMW X3, amongst others, and its engine lineup is believed to include the 3.0L V6 from the Panamera S or the 3.6L Bi-Turbo with 500 HP, which is rumored to make its way on the Macan Turbo, with its 500 HP. Both engines will get the 7-speed PDK transmission as standard.
