The 2015 sports crossover Macan was spotted in Germany for high-speed testing. Donning more camouflage than some of the other Macan sightings, the 2015 model is perhaps shielding some new design elements. The spy shots reveal traditional Porsche high performance Turbo exhaust tips, but not a whole lot else. Check out the gallery for pictures.
The Macan Turbo is expected to offer 370 hp, with the bigger, sedan model offering 420 hp. The Macan shares the same twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 as found in the 2014 Porsche Panamera S, with drive coming from all four wheels thanks to the 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung twin-clutch tranny. A Macan Turbo S is rumored to match the 420 hp offered by the Panamera S in the near future.
The Macan arrives spring, 2014 with the Turbo expected later in the year as a 2015 model.

great power output but now we need to find out what curb weight is like.
a great power to weight ratio will do a lot for the Macan when it comes to reviews, which a lot of people base their buying decision off of.

Considering it shares a platform with Audi/Volkswagen a good indicator is looking at Audis Q5 and Volkswagens Tiguan. The Tiguan Tips it at roughly 4,700 lbs and the Q3 comes in 5,000 lbs.

Im willing to bet the Macan comes in lower than those two in the name of performance..
