Porsche Macan interior spy shotWhat's this? More spy shots of the same Macan test mule we saw a few months ago? Yes. But this time, we've also got a few glimpses into the interior.This Macan is also wearing different wheels, has roof rails, and sports quad exhaust pipes.

We're still waiting for some concrete information about Porsche's Audi Q5-based crossover, which goes into production next year, especially regarding powertrain. The obvious assumption is that the Porsche will be powered by a tweaked version of the Q5's supercharged 3.0-liter V6. New for 2013, it makes 272 horses, though we've also heard rumors of an S version with a more potent powerplant like the one in the Audi S4 that is rated at 329 horsepower. Then there's the mother of all rumors: The Macan might be had with a 370-hp, twin-turbo V6.

Perhaps Stuttgart will end the speculation and drop some official news on us at this year's Paris Motor Show?

      All these years and I still don't get the joke with these ridiculous looking minivan/station wagon things. It's like the automotive equivalent of high-heeled hiking shoes. When will these bloated compensation-machines go away??? Of all the car companies, you can't make a real hatchback, Porsche?

          Lucky for you, Porsche barely makes manual cars anymore. Somebody please tell me that a clutch sucks and I don't need the old technology anymore. I need to hear how precise the PDK is again. Before anybody calls me bitter- I'll just say it. I am bitter. I hate that nobody buys manuals anymore (It was up to about 6% last year). I hate that a company like Porsche or BMW has to explain to me with info-graphics, why DCTs are better. They are insulting my intelligence. I like the feel that one can only achieve by driving a manual with a clutch.

        The 928 was originaly intended to replace the 911 due to Porsche being converned over US safety standards regarding rear engine cars not being safe. It all started with Ralph Nader and his book "Unsafe At Any Speed" over the rear engined Chevy Corvair. The 928 was the most advanced and futureistic car of its time and it changed the automovive world forever. It was no longer profitable after the Japanese decided to copy the car and sell clones at half the price.

      Congrats to VWAG for figuring out how to get us to pay $80k for a Q5. I'm sure they'll sell every one they build no problem.

      VW has aggregated more brands that GM ever thought about... all of their rebranding will end very ugly for them sometime in the not too distant future.

      oh my, it's even uglier than the Cayenne.

      I really understood why Porsche so desperately HAD to make SUVss. I understand about the "business is business" thing, but since they are related to VW, can't they use the profits from VW and Audi to fund the Posches, instead of the SUVs? They should leave the SUVs to Audi.

      So they dropped the "Cajun" name eh? Good thing, otherwise my Louisiana-born wife was going to make me buy one

      Do we even need spy photos of this thing? I know what it is going to look like. Have any of you seen a 911 or a Cayman? I don't get all of the hype over this somebody please explain it to me.

      Maybe instead of making VW SUVs and Audi SUVs and Porsche SUVs, they should just design one model but instead of putting the brand and model name badges on it they can just stick a badge on it that says how much you paid for it.

        why punish a company for trying to make a buck? while they rebadge VW's and sell to stupid people with money, that leaves more profit and play money for the real cars they build. I hear this same thing over on the jeep forums.
