Of the new Macan, Porsche says:
Build a compact SUV? No, we’d rather think outside the box.
We’ve built what we always build: a Sports Car. Five doors, five seats and yet intimate with the road; boasting plenty of space for hobbies, leisure and sport. But no room for compromise. Compact, concentrated and intensive, but still powerful. Practical but never ordinary.
There’s also a teaser video showing a couple of prototypes on the company’s Weissach test track, as well as carving it up on some sand dunes. We hate to admit it, but we think Porsche is about to make the SUV very cool!
The official launch of the Macan is scheduled for the LA Auto Show on 20 November (although we expect details will be released a day or two earlier).
