The mystery is still there!
Porsche could not leave the intrigue. Secret is the specification of the engines which at the moment is not entirely clear due to delays in passing the tests of environmental emissions WLTP.
Most likely, the basic model will continue to use 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine, but the rest of the range get rid of the old 3.6-litre V6, which place must come a pair of more modern engines a V6.
Model Macan S and GTS 2019 are expected to be “fed” from a 3.0-liter turbocharged V6, while the Macan Turbo will get a 2.9-liter V6, known for such models as the Audi RS4. Diesel models will probably go out of range.
