Porsche Macan Sketch

Porsche has announced the name Macan for its upcoming compact SUV. The name Macan is derived from the Indonesian word for tiger. The SUV will start coming off the production lines in Leipzig in 2013.

Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing of Porsche AG, says, "The Macan combines all sports car characteristics with the benefits of a SUV and is a genuine Porsche. The name of a new Porsche has to fit with the brand, sound good in very many languages and dialects and evoke positive associations."
