The Cayenne junior

The Porsche Macan has been snapped by our spy photographers.

Looking like a Cayenne junior, the model has a familiar front fascia, a sloping roofline and an elongated rear hatch. There's also a dual exhaust system, muscular fenders and a tailgate-mounted spoiler.

Engine options remain unconfirmed, but previous reports have suggested the entry-level model will come equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol that produces 220 hp (164 kW / 223 PS). The Macan S, on the other hand, is expected to use a naturally-aspirated 3.6-liter V6 petrol engine with 295 hp (220 kW / 299 PS).

Rumors have also suggested there will be a 190 hp (142 kW / 193 PS) 2.0-liter TDI, a 250 hp (186 kW / 253 PS) 3.0-liter V6 TDI and a Macan Turbo with a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 petrol that produces 370 hp (276 kW / 375 PS) and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque.

The Porsche Macan will go into production in late 2013 and likely be sold as a 2014 model.

Do you know what would be more interesting? If Land Rover made a sedan, or a sports coupe. Imagine how upside down our car-enthusiast lives would be then.

I think Porsche needs to stop using the 911 curves as a basis for every "new" design. I guess they see the big ugly Cayenne selling and assume a smaller version will also sell well. They are probably right.

not much expectation for this thing anyways. but ppl will still buy. i guess these things pay for the development of more exciting cars in Porsche.

This things are basicly Q5 and Q7 with different bodies and with one of the motors one step up on power. (do not call them VW or Audi people will get offended)

Oh my god. Is that what the Macan will look like? Wow what a total shock!! I did NOT see that one coming. How do they even come up with this stuff? They must be, like, the most inventive people in the whole world EVER! ;)

The Audi cloning has contaminated Porsche now. I am a bit disappointed as I had my eyes on this car, hoping it would look like the initial renderings.
