Porsche reportedly planning a new smaller crossover to slot below Macan

During the last decade Porsche has extensively expanded its lineup, that now includes 911, Boxster, Cayman, Cayenne, Panamera and Macan. A smaller saloon to sit below the Panamera is reportedly already in works and now according to Auto Bild, the Stuttgart-based automaker is considering a smaller high-riding crossover to sit below the Macan range.

If Auto Bild has its sources correct, then this new baby Porsche crossover will be revealed as a concept in a couple of years, followed by a production model by the end of the decade.

Rear-wheel drive will be standard, with AWD arrangement optional. The platform and engines in large will be shared with other premium VAG models. We can expect four-cylinder engines and a dual-clutch gearbox. Perhaps even a full EV model.

Pricing details are not known, but obviously it will cost a lot less than the Macan.
