Of the possible shared engines, a 3.0-liter turbodiesel rated at 300-plus horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque is one of the most interesting–though it may not make it to the U.S. We also expect a range of V-6 gasoline engines to be offered, perhaps even a 370-horsepower turbocharged Macan Turbo model. A base four-cylinder rated at about 220 horsepower is also rumored to be in the works.
While the five-door model is the subject of the spy shots, a sportier three-door variant is possible. Despite the near-finished look of the body, the Macan is still about 18 months from production, meaning many of the details could yet change, including its eventual launch date.
