Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.

Porsche can’t wait to introduce us to its newest family member, the Porsche Macan. Earlier today, it released a video teasing the car and a couple of images showing a design sketch and a silhouette.

The Macan, apart from being the smallest Porsche SUV, will also form the base model lineup of the Stuttgart-based carmaker. While there are parts that have been shared with the Audi Q5, Porsche has completely changed the exteriors, interiors and even the chassis of the Macan.

This is the design sketch of the Porsche Macan which was released today.

The petrol engine lineup will consist of a 3.0-liter V6 producing 335hp and 450Nm of torque, and a much more powerful 3.6-liter turbocharged V6 producing 394hp and 550Nm of torque. Porsche will also offer a 3.0-liter V6 diesel capable of delivering 254hp and 580Nm of torque. Transmission duties are handled by the 7-speed PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplung) gearbox, which is a dual-clutch unit.

Porsche Macan teased
The Macan will have its world premiere at the 2013 LA Auto Show on November 20th.

Though they will not be offered immediately, four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines (which currently power the Audi A4, A6, Q3 and Q5) would eventually find their way onto the cheaper Macan variants, in a bid to increase numbers and invite new customers to experience the Porsche brand. Hybrid variations are also expected in the future, to form higher rungs of the Macan lineup, targeted at the ec0-minded buyers.

The Macan will have its world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show, which has its media days commencing from November 20th.
