Porsche enthusiasts most likely have already heard about the luxury automaker's latest work-in-progress: The Macan. Contrary to what some might expect, Porsche is developing the 2014 Porsche Macan to be a five-door CUV with the ultimate potential for a three-door coupe sibling as well.
Giving industry experts and Porsche followers something to chew on, spy photographers have released a set of initial images of the new Macan in action. While the photos don't completely clear us of questions regarding the forthcoming model, Porsche of Fremont is happy to have a handful of details to draw on.
Positioned as a smaller sibling of the 2012 Porsche Cayenne, the Macan boasts unique suspension tweaks that push it a bit closer to the sports car stable. Furthering that notion, the new Porsche auto will offer up a variety of powertrain options, many tuned for stunning performance. Specifically, Europeans will see diesel and hybrid variants while we in the U.S. will get a choice of two powerful gas-only engines. Industry experts whisper about a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder coupled to a 44-hp electric motor in the mix.
In order to distinguish itself from other segment competitors, the Porsche Macan will wear a low roofline and branded interior that shows off all the expected Porsche class. To learn more about the forthcoming model as further details arrive, be sure to stay tuned to our Porsche of Fremont blog.
