The 2015 Porsche Macan has been spied testing yet again, only this time a 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo variant was spotted nearly completely undisguised apart from a few headlight and taillight coverage. The taillight covers are hiding the spectacular new rear of the Macan that remains a secret until the official release at the Los Angeles Auto Show 2013 in November.
Separating the 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo from the regular Porsche Macan is its lower profile, redesigned and far more aggressive front bumper as well as quad exhaust pipes at the rear. Additionally, the 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo can be seen riding on brand new sport alloy wheels. Despite its ‘Turbo’ nameplate, the 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo won’t produce anywhere near as much power as the Porsche Cayenne Turbo or the Porsche 911 Turbo.
Instead, powering the 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo is expected to be a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine found in the 2014 Porsche Panamera S. In Panamera S guise, this powerplant produces 420hp but that’s expected to be detuned to around 370hp for the Macan Turbo. As with the Porsche 911, Porsche Cayenne and Porsche Panamera line-ups, a Porsche Macan Turbo S variant is the expected further down the road.
With the debut of the 2015 Porsche Macan expected near the end of the year, it’s unlikely the 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo will debut this year and will instead appear at a major auto show early next year before hitting showrooms later in 2014.
Additionally, the base model will come with a 220hp-strong 2.0 liter TFSI engine, followed by a 295hp-strong 3.6 liter V6. The diesel engines will respectively produce 190hp and 250hp
