Spec sheet, images and other details of the upcoming 2014 Porsche Macan have leaked on the cyber space. The 2014 Porsche Macan will make its public debut later this month at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.
As we have known since time immemorial, the Macan looks very similar to the Cayenne. However, worth mentioning is that while the designers at Porsche have borrowed plenty of design cues from the Cayenne, they have done a great job with giving the Macan its own identity. Being shorter, the Macan definitely looks more athletic.
Underpinning the Macan is the same platform that will underpin the next gen Audi Q5. However, Porsche claims that it will make enough changes to the platform to endow the Macan with sportier handling characteristics.
The Macan, like most of the Porsche models out there, would go on sale in both Turbo and non Turbo variants. Differentiating the Macan Turbo from the regular model would be a bolder grille, bigger air inlets at front and a a quad exhaust pipe system.
The Macan will be 4,675 mm long, 1,923 mm wide and will be 1,628 mm high. The car has a kerb weight of 1,898 kgs for the diesel variant and 1,947 kgs for the Turbo model.
The entry level Macan S is powered by a 3.0 liter V6 engine with max power of 340 hp and peak torque of 460 Nm. The Macan Turbo is powered by a 3.6 liter turbocharged V6 that has a max power of 400 hp and peak torque of 550 Nm.
A 3.0 liter V6 diesel engine variant will also be available. The 3.0 litre Audi sourced motor has a max power of 258 hp and peak torque of 580 Nm.
