Spy Shots showing an uncamouflaged Porsche Macan doing the tests in China. The vehicle was spied in central Beijing by reader MB4Ever, thank you for the pictures! The Porsche Macan debuted internationally on the L.A. Auto Show in November and it will have its China-debut on the April 2014 Beijing Auto Show, with a launch on the China car market scheduled soon thereafter.
Price for the Porsche Macan in China will start around 600.000 yuan or 98.000 US dollar. At launch it will be available with a 335hp 3.0 V6 (Macan S) or a 395hp 3.6 V6 turbo (Macan Turbo). Later on a 235hp 2.0 4-cylinder turbo will become available as well, which will bring price dowwn to about 525.000 yuan. China will not get the diesel engines as diesels in passenger cars are forbidden in most Chinese cities.
This particular car seems to be a Macan S.
The vehicle had temporarily ‘test’ licenses behind the windows. Interestingly, the licensed were issued in Shanghai, some 2000 kilometer down south by road. That is what we call a good test!
