Porsche Macan to debut at Los Angeles – gets V6 turbo petrolSat, 28 Sep 2013 00:00:00 -0700
The dealer presentation for the new Porsche Macan
The Porsche Macan – Porsche’s take on a smaller version of the Cayenne to tap in to the more compact SUV market – will arrive at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November and get V6 turbo power. Jalopnik has managed to get photos of a dealer presentation of the Porsche Macan which confirms its arrival at Los Angeles and also gives us some detail of what will power the new smaller Porsche SUV.
We’re not entirley sure the photo Porsche used in the presentation is the actual Macan (Jalopnik think Porsche has used a render by Auti Bild to muddy the waters for their dealers – just in case the presentation leaks) but it does seem clear that Porsche, at l;east initially, aims to provide the Macan with decent levels of Porsche power.
It seems the Macan will launch – at least in North America – with a 3.0 litre V6 turbo in the Macan S and a 3.6 litre V6 turbo in the Macan Turbo and cost $52k for the S and $75k for the Turbo.
That promises decent levels of performance even for the Macan S, but the Macan Turbo could deliver something north of 420bhp and offer performance comparable to the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.
There’s no doubt Porsche will be offering a base version of the Macan, below the S and Turbo, which could come with a naturally aspirated 3.0 litre V6 and, for Europe, diesel versions too.
But we’ll no doubt get more on the Porsche Macan as the Los Angeles Auto Show looms.
