The last time we saw the 2014 Porsche Macan it was wearing the skin of the Audi Q5 and testing alongside a fleet of Cayennes. Now, finally, the Macan has slipped into its own clothes and we’re getting to see the shape of the new Porsche crossover.
As anyone who’s seen a Porsche before could predict, the production Macan will look very much like a 0.90 scale Cayenne with touches of Panamera in the roof line and headlights. Don’t put any stock in the head or tail lights; they’re stickers. Beyond that we’ve got a very aggressive — and clunky — grille with a poorly integrated radar unit for adaptive cruise / braking and a wildly sloped hatch that trades the functional bubble of the Panamera’s rear for something sharper. On the running gear side we see relatively small wheels for this class and a welcome amount of sidewall! Brakes look to be fixed calipers up front (four piston) and single piston sliders out back.
Still no word or clues on the new powertrain (dual exhaust means nothing these days) but a turbocharged four-cylinder and a small 6-cylinder are likely.
