Originally codenamed the 'Cajun', Porsche has now traded the somewhat edible alias of its new small sporty SUV for a more vigorous title: the Macan. And if you think that it's still in a concept stage, well, think again because according to Porsche, production begins in 2013
 
Porsche has not released any details or specs of its upcoming SUV. Sources, however, point towards the probability that the Macan will be riding on the same platform as the Audi Q5, but with Porsche's own running gear. We don't think they'd be crazy enough to fit in the Cayenne's V8, so a smaller V6 or even a four-cylinder hybrid model sounds more realistic. But then again, we shouldn't be underestimating the Germans.
