Porsche's new Macan SUV has been spied once again, this time with only the barest of disguises. And that's no surprise, now that a November unveiling has been confirmed.

Wearing only basic camouflage, the spied test car offers a clear look at the Macan's styling, highlighting the car's 'Cayenne Junior' styling.

While the lights and D-pillar are lightly masked, it is clear that the Macan will borrow much of the Cayenne's look, including the familiar glasshouse, simple body lines and fat haunches.

Set to enter production in December, the Macan will share a platform with the Audi Q5, along with most of its powertrains and driveline.

Separating it from the Q5 will be a higher-output engine and handling options, and of course its own unique design, inside and out.

A high-performance flagship is also expected, driven by a 275kW twin-turbo version of the 3.0 litre supercharged engine driving the Audi S4.

Power is expected to be sent to all four wheels on all Macan models, via a version of the Quattro system used in the Q5.

This round of spy photos has also inspired a spot of rendered speculation by Photoshop wizard Dan Buzdugan. See below.

 

"Macan"?

As for its name, "Cajun" had been adopted as a project title for the new model, born as a portmanteau of the larger Cayenne's name and the word "junior".

Why wasn't the name approved for the final production model? According to Porsche's Bernhard Maier, the new Macan name, which is derived from the Indonesian word for tiger, is simply a better fit.

“The Macan combines all sports car characteristics with the benefits of a SUV and is a genuine Porsche,” Maier said.

“The name of a new Porsche has to fit with the brand, sound good in very many languages and dialects and evoke positive associations.”
