New 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo
Porsche's forthcoming midsize SUV, the Macan, caught testing wearing almost no camo. Our spy photographers formerly shot a Macan image outside for screening, but it had significantly more camo compared to the automobile you see here. We've also gleaned new information about the Macan's powertrain within the interim.
Of course, this income will help bankroll the cars these purists love--the exceptional Cayman, Boxster, and 911--in a similar manner to the successful Cayenne and Panamera.
In the event the Porsche Macan's fundamental posture and profile appear familiar, that's because underneath, it's an Audi Q5. Some measurements will be changed for the Porsche, including its width (that'll grow) and height (that'll shrink). This image is wearing bizarre headlight and taillight stickers meant to throw off an assessment of these crucial styling elements, but the cutline for the front peepers is observable and about mimics those of the Cayman and Panamera. Out back, the rear window is steeply raked, along with the quick D-column is stylishly thick, if harmful to blindspot visibility. All In All, the car strongly copies the Cayenne, but with smaller, tighter, and even sportier proportions.
Power is anticipated to come in the brand new double-turbocharged 3.0liter V-6 that debuted in the 2014 Porsche Panamera S. In the large sedan the motor is tuned to produce 420 horsepower, though that is anticipated to be capped at around 370 horsepower for the Macan Turbo.
Key opponents for the Macan Turbo will comprise the approaching GLA45 AMG from MercedesBenz and a potential M Functionality X4 crossover from BMW.
The Macan will be launched this autumn at the La auto show, and is going on sale soon afterward at a starting cost of around $45,000. Actual transaction costs, of course, depends greatly on how deep customers plunge into Porsche's vast choices and personalization catalogue. An eye-wateringly expensive sticker could be packed by a well-optioned Macan Turbo.
