Though we don’t know much about the Macan, it’s likely that it will share its platform with Audi’s compact SUV, the Q5. Based on the sketch, the Macan looks like a compact four-door crossover with a sloping roofline, sleek lines and coupe-like silhouette. Its closest competitor will probably be Land Rover’s newest SUV, the compact Range Rover Evoque. To wit, Porsche says the Macan will be off-road ready.
The Macan will be built at Porsche’s plant in Leipzig, Germany, in late 2013. No word on when it will hit U.S. dealerships, but probably in early 2014.
