One of the more anticipated offerings of the upcoming year, Porsche's sporty baby Cayenne, the 2015 Macan, has already earned nods of approval from a number of Autoblog staffers. We named it one of the top five debuts at last month's LA Auto Show, citing its 400-horsepower turbocharged engine and other sporty bits as good reasons to get excited about Stuttgart's latest.

And while our first test may be many months away, we're keeping our ears to the ground for any information on Porsche's compact crossover. We're especially keen on stuff like this – our first look at the new model in motion and undergoing assembly at its Leipzig plant. Both are shorter videos, and while there's little of the glorious engine noise we've already been teased with, the videos do offer a great look at the handsome Macan on the road, as well as glimpse at Porsche's state-of-the-art manufacturing operations.

Scope out the videos below and let us know what you think.

      In this video Porsche has done a pretty decent job at selling the car... But they've done a terrific job at selling me Vancouver!

      nothing attractive about it. If you dreamed of owning a porche "truck" and didnt have the money well then you would be excited. But it looks like crap.

      It is a Porsche......not much more needs to be said. The two 911's I've had, (ones a turbo) were without a doubt the best road and track cars I've ever driven.

      After seeing this abomination of a "Porsche"....I am overjoyed that I decided to buy an air cooled 911. If you like SUV's, why would you spend that much money on a badge. If you want a Porsche...buy yourself a real one.

      funny how auto blog guys love wagons but dont like this? This is a performance wagon.It is neither tall nor big like other crossovers and most likely has performance that will shame many a sedan. This is not a rav, so if someone wants a smaller size hatch, that is luxury, looks ok, has performance and not too big well then how many options are there like 2 or 3, this thing will outsell all other porches combined, good job porsche
