The Porsche Macan: from concept to reality

Coming out later in 2013 Porsche has developed a mid-size luxury crossover, to be named the Macan. It was previously named the Cajun and is a smaller SUV than the Cayenne.

The Porsche Cayenne has been a huge hit for the sports-car brand and with the introduction of a smaller and less-expensive crossover; Porsche is hoping the Macan will really make an impact on the market. The Macan will share very similar architecture to the Audi Q5 but will be shorter and wider. Of course it will also feature the very unique Porsche-specific styling and will aim to provide a 911 driving experience while being more practical. Consumers will be able to choose from a turbocharged, 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces about 237 horsepower and a supercharged V6 engine that produces close to 288 horsepower. There will also be a hybrid version of the car that can be driven on either battery or gas or both power sources. Porsche however has mentioned that added acceleration may take priority over fuel economy.

As per usual for Porsche the Macan will offer a long list of comfort, convenience, and trim options. The Macan will however be about function and should appeal to many buyers. Right now the Macan is still in its concept car stage and a lot of details are still unclear, but Arizona Porsche drivers should be happy to know production is said to start early 2013 and the car being released to dealerships a little later in 2013. One thing that is for sure is Porsche has a reputation for perfection and performance-oriented engineering, strong resale values, and high rankings amongst consumer surveys; making the Macan a perfect edition to the Porsche family and to your family as well.
