The first photos of the Porsche SUV have made their way online.
The upcoming Audi Q5-based Porsche Macan SUV has been given what we think to be the most accurate rendering so far, thanks to the intrepid crew over at German mag Autobild. Our Bavarian bros. released a pair of solid renderings not long ago which preview the latest Porsche about to roll off the line and the Range Rover Evoque needs to watch its back. The Macan, expected to debut sometime in 2013, should arrive first as a four-door model and later arrive to show rooms with a two-door version.
The SUV is expected to run on a powerful Porsche plant, meaning the Macan could carry a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 with 350hp. Audi-sourced engines are also included, like a 240hp 2.0-liter 4-cylinder and a 290hp 3.0-liter V6. Possible Macan S and Macan Hybrid variants have also been rumored, with the latter carrying a 230hp 4-cylinder paired to a 50hp electric motor. The Porsche Macan will launch in 2013 and could price in the region of $50,000.
