They did "preview" the hood on the recent Panamera Sport Turismo Concept. Looks like they managed to make it to production.
On a separate note, in Malaysia, if this car is pronounced as "ma-Kahn" instead of "ma-Chan", it will be literally translated as "eat" (makan).

I hate to admit how much I like this, but I have to. Nice proportions, nice interior, and impressive specs.. It's a new gen Porsche that isn't a complete disgrace to the brand.

So, between 500 - 6000$ more expensive than a comparable Cayenne

Not sure this makes sense...

Makes ZERO sense if it's true. The Macan needed to be priced like a Lexus RX (a tick under $40K base) not a Cayenne. Or if anything the Macan should have inherited the job of the base Cayenne and let the Cayenne keep the middle and upper range.

That's nuts considering they didn't have to pay for the development of a brand new platform, but just borrow from the Q5.

I wonder the the 3 liter turbo engine is related to Audi's supercharged 3.0L V6?

According to CNET there will be a turbo 4-cylinder as the base model, and the 3.0 Turbo with 340HP is actually the Macan S.

So if you compare the Macan S to the Cayenne S, there is a much bigger difference in price ($17,000)
Macan S starts at $49,900
Cayenne S: $66,800

The author of the Carscoops article is an idiot.

It's a overpriced Audi Q5.

It's overpriced by maybe $5k, but Porsche know they can get that much more for their cars than Audi and BMW. It's a 340HP, 5-seat Porsche that does 60mph in 5 seconds. I don't think they'll have a lot of problems selling these.

Lol, I don't know how in the US, but here in Europe the only Q5 model in the 30s ( this is) are the 2 liter 4 bangers, I don't know how you would expect the Macan to start in this regions.

The SQ5 is 60.000 in Germany (with the 313hp 3.0TDI), the Macan S Diesel starts at 58.000 (with the 250hp 3.0TDI), so it doesn't seem so wrong for what it is in comparison.
