could this be the Macan? Referring to Green and Black. Too small to be Cayenne. As per insideline, the Q5 are Macan in disguise. if seen carefully, the green one is almost same in size, have test antennas like q5 and matches the sketch. what's cooking? Even the front DRL and the scoop matches and so does side profile as well as the arch above the wheel.

Does the name Macan have a meaning in any specific language? The concept looks cool. Although sharing the platform with Q5 is purely from a cost perspective, it would do Porsche some good to differentiate with the engines specs, features and innards to make their own mark.
Also wish if they do launch it in India, they rename it to something else. Calling it Porsche Macan is only going to be a marketing harakiri for it can be construed as Porsche is getting into the construction business.

The newest Porsche, a baby crossover inspired by the larger Cayenne SUV and a key driver of the automaker's ambitious sales goals, has been spotted uncovered on the roads of Europe.
The Macan -- Indonesian for tiger -- goes on sale in 2013 as a 2014 model with a big job: draw younger, mostly urban customers to the Porsche fold.
Previously known by its codename of Cajun -- short for Cayenne Junior -- the Macan is decidedly smaller than the Cayenne, Porsche's first SUV.The Macan will share a platform with Audi's Q5 and upcoming Q6 crossovers and is expected to be powered by Porsche's first four-cylinder engine since the 968 was phased out in 1995

At the top of the range will be two or possibly even three V6 engines, including a supercharged gasoline unit making close to 300hp, and a 3.0-liter turbo diesel with around 250hp and over 300hp (the latter from the new Audi SQ5).

After so many references to Audi, you won't be surprised to learn that the Macan will share its underpinning with the next Q5. The two models will use many common components such as the steering systems, axles, transmissions and Audi's quattro all-wheel drive system.

However, to alleviate concerns about handling and dynamics, Porsche engineers will fine-tune the chassis and develop their own dynamic control systems.

Porsche itself has confirmed that the new compact-sized luxury SUV is scheduled to go into production in 2013.

Porsche raises production forecast for Macan by 30,000 next year, report says



Porsche expects output of its new Macan compact sports utility vehicle to reach 75,000 in its first year of production in 2013, a rise of 30,000 vehicles over an initial forecast.
The new model will play a key role in the brand's ambitions to increase annual sales to more than 200,000 units by 2018, up from 118,867 in 2011

Porsche Macan will be the cheapest Porsche one can buy!

The Porsche Macan, Indonesian for Tiger, will be a Cayenne-inspired crossover to take on the BMW X3, Mercedes ML Class and the Land Rover Freelander
The Macan will share the same underpinnings as the new Audi Q5.
Macan is going to be a completely different SUV from the Q5 in terms of dynamics. New engines, transmissions and suspensions have been developed specifically for the Macan.
Soon after its debut, the Porsche Macan will hit the stands for an expected starting price of 45,000 Euros (24.60 lakhs). Porsche plan to sell 45,000 to 65,000 units of Macan every year.

Those tail lights look so much better than the ones in the scoop photos. Matter of fact, this design would suit the bigger brother Cayenne as well.

In fact this render has made me think again about the opinion i had (Ugly !) of the Macan.

If this is how it will look im sure the Q5 territory will be dominated now by a Porsche.

PS - Also love the new blackened element on the lower part of the door, much more better proportioned than the usual side claddings we see on SUV's
