Porsche Macan Release Date, Price & Launch: Teaser Unveils Specs and Interior of 2014 SUV Sports Car [VIDEO]
Move over Corvette; Porsche is back and is trying to get back in the spotlight with the release of a teaser video for the 2014 Porsche Macan.
"The large air intakes are just waiting to inhale life," Porsche said. "The side profile is sharply contoured by the sporty sloping roof line. With improved aerodynamic quality. Our designers call it the Porsche flyline."
The Macan, which gets its name from the Indonesian word for tiger, is expected to feature exceptional style, upscale amenities and controlled speed.
"The new Macan - built for an intensive life in which the thirst for experience and thrills and spills are ever-present, Built for a life that refuses to be hemmed in by conventions. A Sports Car that gives us what we're looking for: that feeling of being alive," the Porsche website reads.
According to Auto World News, Porsche Macan, Porsche's latest SUV, will feature 3.0-liter V6 engines, 350-hp 3.6 liter twin turbo engine and 290-horsepower. The website also claims that the Porsche Macan will probably only be available with Porsche's signature seven-speed PDK automated dual-clutch manual.
Quad-LED lights are also new editions to Porsche's SUV line. Some believe these lights will soon be used on all Porsche models.
Porsche, however, is not referring to the Macan as an SUV. Instead the Macan is a sports car with "five doors and five seats."
"We've built what we always build: a Sports Car. Five doors, five seats and yet intimate with the road; boasting plenty of space for hobbies, leisure and sport. But no room for compromise. Compact, concentrated and intensive, but still powerful. Practical but never ordinary," Porsche says.
The 2014 Porsche Macan, and its official specs, will be unveiled in 37 days. The sports SUV will be available for purchase in the spring starting at $52,000.
"I expect Porsche earnings to rise next year," Daniel Schwarz, Commerzbank AG analyst, told WebProNews. "The Macan is set to be the key earnings driver in 2014, especially in the second half of the year."
