Porsche dealer leak reveals the Macan will be launched with two V6 engines

Due to some leaked pictures from a Porsche dealer , we now have details about the Macan, 911 Targa and Boxster/ Cayman GTS. The pictures were taken, probably without authorization, during a presentation for Porsche`s 2014 models. Although the pictures in question are quite blurry, they still are a long awaited resource of information concerning the aforementioned cars.



The Porsche Macan will make its debut during the Los Angeles Auto Show. Under the hood, the vehicle is equipped two turbocharged engines, a 3.6 liter V6 engine for the Macan Turbo and a 3.0 liter V6 in the Macan S. Using the 3.6 liter motor comes as a surprise as, up to this moment Porsche has not had something similar in their lineup (if we are to ignore the VW motor powering the base Cayenne). Both the Macan and the Turbo version are expected to use a seven speed PDK dual clutch transmission as a standard. The pricing starts from $75.000 for the Macan Turbo and $52.000 for the Macan S.



Rumors say that the Porsche Cayman GTS and Boxster will be revealed during the Beijing Motor Show. The vehicles reportedly ride on 20 inch alloy Carrera S wheels, come with redesigned bumpers and feature leather wrapped upholstery and a sport steering wheel. Optionally, the cars can be equipped with an optimized motor producing 15 HP more than the S versions and a PDK gearbox. Pricing starts at $75.000.



The 911 Targa is set to make its debut during the North American International Auto Show. It seems that the vehicle will feature a fully automatic roof system designed to enhance comfort during the driving experience. The roof`s mechanism is not known, however, there are suppositions that it may somehow retract to the rear of the auto. Regarding the engines, 350 and 400 HP versions are expected. Approximate pricing is expected to be between $100.000 and $120.000.
