Development work continues on the 2014 Porsche Macan as our spy photographers have caught the crossover undergoing testing on the Nürburgring.

Heavily influenced by the Cayenne, the model features a familiar front fascia with prominent air intakes and sweptback headlights. There's also a sloping roofline, a tailgate-mounted spoiler and a four-tailpipe exhaust system.

Under the hood, we can expect a variety of different engines. Petrol options are slated to include a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 220 hp (164 kW / 223 PS), a naturally-aspirated 3.6-liter V6 with 295 hp (220 kW / 299 PS) and possibly a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 with 370 hp (276 kW / 375 PS) in the Macan Turbo. On the diesel side, there could be a 2.0-liter TDI with 190 hp (142 kW / 193 PS) and a 3.0-liter V6 TDI with 250 hp (186 kW / 253 PS). There's also would of a hybrid variant which would have a powertrain sourced from the Audi Q5 Hybrid.
