Over-zoomed Porsche Macan Photos Real? [Updated]

‘Tis the day of leaked photos, it would seem. After the Jaguar F-Type Coupe, Chevrolet Colorado truck and the Subaru WRX performance saloon, we have the Porsche Macan, or at least we think we do with theses low-quality shots that have been blow up.

To find out if they’re real, we’ll have to wait up until tonight when Porsche pulls the covers of the Cayenne’s new smaller brother before the LA Auto Show.

The Macan luxury compact SUV shares its hardware with the next Audi Q5, albeit tweaked to suit the needs of Porsche, and is rumored to launch next year with an initial choice of V6 diesel and gasoline engines topped off by a new 3.6-liter turbocharged V6 rated for around 400HP and 550Nm (406 lb-ft).

We’ll have more later on, so stay tuned.
