Porsche released photos of its upcoming Macan crossover today showing almost all of the vehicle uncovered.

Like a scantly clad supermodel, most of the body showing with only a few bits hidden from view. Specifically, the car’s head and tail lights are still concealed with printed stickers. Teaser images released last week tipped the reason behind Porsche’s choice to use the automotive equivalent to pasties; it will debut with new headlights first seen on the Sport Turismo concept car in Paris.

Official details about the Macan are still a secret, but it is expected to be offered with both a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and 3.0-liter supercharged V6. Architecture is held in common with the Audi Q5, although revisions to the chassis will help place the Macan above its Audi cousin.

The official debut will happen during this year’s L.A. Auto Show in late November. Today’s photos show the car undergoing final testing in the U.S. and while it’s difficult to distill new information from the pictures, there are two distinctly different sets of exhaust pipes visible.

For those who are weary about the Macan having the turbo 4 cylinder can just go test drive a Q5 with the same transplant to get a feel for the power. If that is no enough maybe the supercharded 6 can do it some justice for the power freaks.

True on the Q5, but I would imagine that the Porsche 4 pot will have more power than the Audi, and the Macan is targeted to be 100-300lbs less in weight than the Audi. So the Porsche would feel peppier than the Q5 even with the same motor.

Good point, the Macan should be more of a drivers vehicle than the Q5 because of the powerful engine and less weight. I can already see the track test video's going on :D
