The newest SUV offering from Porsche is going to be called the Macan. Previously believed to be called the Cajun, Porsche released some details today about its upcoming SUV.

The sub-Cayenne Macan will be available for the customer who doesn’t want a full size SUV, but still wants the luxury of a Porsche. In the Concept sketch we can see that the Macan will sport a low profile roofline but keep the general look of the Cayenne.

The word Macan is Indonesian for Tiger, and was chosen because, “The name of a new Porsche has to fit with the brand, sound good in very many languages and dialects and evoke positive associations,” says Bernhard Maier, Member of the Executive Board Sales and Marketing of Porsche AG.

The Macan will begin production in 2013 in Leipzig, Germany.
