New Porsche Macan teased on new Porsche microsite

What started out being called the Porsche Cajun turned in to the Porsche Macan, and the Macan will debut officially at the Los Angeles Auto Show at the end of November. But ahead of that debut – and, it would seem, a reveal in 41 days time at the first LA press day – Porsche has launched a new microsite for the Macan to tease and inform Porsche fans and potential buyers.

What Porsche are at pains to point out is that the Macan isn’t a compact SUV but a five door, five seat Sports Car that just happens to have a raised ride height. Fair enough.

But this time round with a new SUV, Porsche aren’t expecting the howls of anguish Porsche anoraks emitted when the Cayenne arrived, more an interest in how Porsche will differentiate the Macan from its Audi Q5 underpinnings.

We already know the Macan is going to be Porsche powered, with a 3.0 litre V6 turbo in the Macan S and a 3.6 litre V6 turbo in the Macan Turbo at launch, with a smaller four-pot petrol and diesel – plus hybrid – likely to follow on later, and we’re expecting very Porsche-like handling too.

As the world’s love affairs with more compact sports SUVs continue, the Porsche Macan looks set to be the default sport choice – if your pockets are deep enough.

More on the Porsche Macan at – or even before – the Los Angeles Auto Show.
