The new smaller sized Porsche SUV will be called the Macan, the word is derived from the Indonesian word for Tiger.
The all new smaller SUV previously known as the Cajun! will be Porsche’s fifth model line and slots in below the larger Cayenne, thus widening the brand’s market in the all-important SUV field. The Macan will go on sale in 2013, and is being built at the newly expanded Leipzig facility in Germany.
“The Macan combines all sports car characteristics with the benefits of a SUV and is a genuine Porsche”, said Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing of Porsche AG. “The name of a new Porsche has to fit with the brand, sound good in very many languages and dialects and evoke positive associations.”
Word names at Porsche have a concrete connection with the corresponding model and its characteristics: the name Boxster describes the combination of boxer engine and roadster, Cayenne stands for sharpness, the Cayman is snappy and agile and a Panamera is more than a Gran Turismo, capable also of winning the Carrera Panamericana long-distance race.
