The Chinese have a knack for ripping off popular car designs with absolutely no repercussions. For that reason, car companies have wizened up and have started to file for patents on their designs even if they have no plans on releases the vehicle in China.

So when Porsche registered this Macan patent in China, it could be because the Macan is soon coming to China, or it could be because Porsche doesn't want to be surprised by a Chinese Macan knock off.

Furthermore, this seems to be the base model of the Macan. You can tell from the two large trapezoidal exhaust pipes. On the Macan S and S Diesel there are four pipes, so it must be a different model from those.

Better to be safe than sorry. I don't think it would hurt Porsche if there was to be a replica, honestly who would buy one anyways. It would take from their sales. I think eventually Porsche will end up in China too. Based on the rest of the luxury cars appearing there its only a matter of time.
