Porsche's new Macan crossover will be using the platform from the Audi Q5 and Porsche is saying the Macan will not be a Q5 in Porsche clothing.
“Everything has been modified. Engines, transmissions, suspension — it’s all new. Audi can’t believe what we’ve done,” said Porsche’s R&D chief, Wolfgang Hatz.
Hatz went onto say that the Macan will be the first Porsche in a long time to have a four-cylinder.
“Not from the beginning, but in the medium to longterm, for sure,” he said.
