A new report indicates the Porsche Macan will be revealed in late November at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.

A Porsche insider has told Auto Express the baby Cayenne will share its platform with the Audi Q5 but will ride on a new suspension and have different engines. In addition, the interior cabin will also be redone for the Macan which means it will most likely adopt some of the layout seen in the newest 911 and Panamera models.

The Porsche Macan is said to be available only with an all-wheel drive configuration and will utilize the MLB platform but with more extensive use of aluminum parts which will make it around 130 kg (286 lbs) lighter than the Q5.

Engine lineup should include a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter with 220 bhp (164 kW), a V6 3.6-liter naturally-aspirated unit churning 295 bhp (220 kW) and a more powerful twin-turbo V6 3.0-liter rated at 370 bhp (276 kW) in the Macan Turbo variant. Diesel offerings will probably consist of a 2.0-liter TDI with 190 bhp (142 kW) and a beefier V6 3.0-liter TDI generating 250 bhp (186 kW). There also might be a hybrid model with a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline mill combined with a 54 bhp (40 kW) electric motor.

It's scheduled to go on sale at the beginning of next year at a starting price of approximately 36,000 GBP. It has all the chances of becoming Porsche's best-selling model.
