You there! Did you buy a Porsche Macan in April? Hey, there’s a solid chance the answer to that is “yes.” Last month, the German maker of sports cars and luxury SUVs had its best sales month ever in America, and it’s all thanks to their new small crossover.
Automakers are always going on about "aspirational" cars, so Porsche devised a plan to stoke the flames, transforming unwitting shoppers' cars into the new Macan with its "Magic Mirror".
Well, not just any crossover but the 400 horsepower Porsche Macan Turbo, one which is faster than any crossover has a right to be. The good people over at EVO took a Macan Turbo and an M3 to create a highly useful piece of consumer advice.

The Audi Q5 With A Bodykit, er, excuse me, I mean the 2015 Porsche Macan, is inching closer to production. Its power specs just hit the Internets, however, and the engines under the hood are most certainly not Audi Q5 With A Bodykit numbers. We're talking solid amounts of power for a small SUV.
The 2014 Porsche Macan is coming, and Porsche is doing what it always does in that the marketing people hide the car because they're just so proud of how it looks, but this new teaser photo does show us that it's got these funky quad LED headlights. So hey, headlights!
