Porsche has released yet another teaser of the new Porsche Macan mid-size SUV. This time we get a preview of the raspy exhaust sound.

Porsche Macan exhaust sound

Believed to be a turbocharged V6, either 3.0 or 3.6 litres in capacity, the new Macan certainly sounds like a Porsche. It’s a raspy yet deep and powerful soundtrack, described by Porsche as a “typical rich sound”.

As far as we know, the Macan will be offered in two V6 forms; a twin-turbo 3.0 litre with around 240kW and a Macan ‘Turbo’ 3.6 with around 300kW. Both engines should see the SUV sprint from 0-100km/h in under 6.0 seconds and 5.0 seconds, respectively.

The all-new model will be based on the same platform that underpins the Audi Q5, carrying similar exterior proportions, only underneath it will showcase distinct Porsche performance components.

It’s not long to wait now. All will be revealed at the Los Angeles Auto Show commencing on November 22.
