Porsche Macan sneak previewBack

PorscheMacanPorsche has just released a new Porsche Macan microsite on the Porsche website providing the latest images and details ahead of its LA Motor Show launch.

The new website includes new sketches of the company’s latest SUV with the production model due to be officially unveiled at the LA Motor Show on November 20th.

Although the website does not give too much away, if you take a look at the company’s Facebook page, you can obtain the economy figures of all of its Porsche cars including the new Macan.

So, courtesy of Facebook, we now know that the Porsche Macan’s 254bhp 3.0-litre V6 diesel will return a claimed 46.3mpg and emit 159g/km of CO2. The range-topping 394bhp 3.6-litre V6 Turbo claims 30.7mpg and 216g/km CO2 emissions.

Images of the new Porsche reveal that the Macan will sport a similar design as the new 918 Spyder with its quad LED daytime running lights and sketches also confirm that the tail-light design will be similar to that of the recently facelifted Porsche Panamera.

Further designs reveal the roof of the Macan will be curved which designers from Porsche refer to as a ‘flyline’, blending into a tailgate-mounted spoiler at the rear.

The new Porsche Macan is predicted to become a best-seller in the current Porsche range and will continue the company’s transition from being a niche sports car maker to a mainstream premium car maker in its own right.

The Porsche Macan will also be the cheapest model in the Porsche line-up with prices for the diesel model set to start at just under the current entry level Porsche Boxter at £38,237.

Looking at the sales figures for Porsche in the first two quarters of 2013, they show that the company has sold 28,720 Porsche Boxster, Porsche Cayman and Porsche 911s combined, whilst it sold almost twice as many Porsche Panamera and Porsche Cayenne cars combined in the same period at 52,845.

These statistics show us that 65% of the new Porsche cars are saloons and SUVs, and with the highly anticipated arrival of the new Macan, Porsche are set to increase this stat even further with analysts predicting that Porsche will sell as many as 65,000 Macans in the first year of sale.
