    2014 Porsche Macan to debut officially in Los Angeles in November - $42,000 starting price and 286 pounds lighter than the Q5?

    The Porsche Macan design has already been basically completely leaked online but Porsche states that the official reveal will take place at the Los Angeles International Auto Show in November. What is interesting is that this same source regarding the reveal date also claims a starting price point in the $42,000 range. Will that be with a turbo 2.0 four cylinder motor sourced from VW? Most likely but being able to get a Porsche SUV under $50k will definitely pad Porsche sales quite a bit.

    This same source also stated the Macan will be lighter than its Audi Q5 sibling by 286 pounds which sounds like a heck of a lot. But maybe Porsche has pulled it off. That would put the Macan at 3800 pounds starting which just sounds way too light. We will know soon enough, expect the car for sale next year in the Spring.

    Then the Macan Turbo will be $80k? Why would the S get the V6 Turbo from the Panamera S?

    Yeah... Should have typed turbo not S. But if the base car is a turbo motor, it's kind of weird to have another turbo model. :-/

    Not really if it's a 2.0T which it is.

    You haven't even seen it or the details yet? This will slap an X3 around.

    Your right, im kind of just going off their current Cayenne, but thinking smaller and nicer.

    Id take it over the X1, but a fully spec'd out X3 might be a strong competitor. And the X5 is much bigger so a different market. Then theres the Rover's Evoque coming in around the same price/size that isnt too bad

    If this gets the rumored turbo version, so 400+ hp, an X3 is outgunned.
