I'm curious what Porsche is hiding with the lower side body disguise.

Pretty sure that it's just black door trim (like a kick guard), kind of retro. We'll know for certain on Wednesday. There is a better pic of the side trim in the doors on page 7 in the q5 side by side comparo.

The Macan microsite informs that there will be a live internet reveal tomorrow at 07:55 PST. ( It actually says today but the date they have is Nov. 20 )

I came on here today looking for official reveal leaked info. I guess we'll just keep being patient. I drove behind a new black Cayenne Turbo S for a while this morning. Dammit if that thing ain't the sex.

Headlights and rear diffuser are nice finishing details that we haven't seen yet. I'm confused though, is the reveal tonight at 7:55pm? The microsite has a link up that says "Go to live broadcast" and says unveiling Nov 20th but then says tonight? Silly Germans.

Update! Reveal is TONIGHT!:

Ha that's true. duh
I'm on microsite now. I must say it's a pretty nifty way to reveal and it's sure gotten me excited. Do you think there will be a configurator up today?

If my memory serves me correctly, the 918 configurator was up the next day.

Tail lights look effing great!

No kidding! They are almost Aston Martinesque. From these pix I'd say in total reverse from the Cayenne the rear quarter looks better than the front.

Interior on the Turbo looks great! I am even liking the "S" as well. I have never been a fan of blue cars, but that blue just pops.

I am thinking:

Turbo
Silver or Red Paint
Black Leather
Red Seatbelts

If you look on the Porsche USA website, there is an empty slot in the "Models" drop-down, right below the Cayenne...

Are those fat quad round pipes standard on the S, I wonder? I agree that blue is fantastic but I might lean at black on black with chrome trim delete but with silver wheels. Got to try to limit the cute / androgyn factor that these proportions on an SUV can't fully shake...

I hope they are standard.

Black on Black would look sharp!

I'm just waiting for some numb nuts to post that they're ordering a Superman color combo.

They're really killing us here... maybe they're waiting to release them during the auto show?

I'm pretty sure I would go black with beige interior (since my wife will veto the red ) but I don't like that the carpet is beige. Black on black with colored seat belts is dope too.

The round tail pipes seem to be on the S and the squared ones on the Turbo. Not sure if they're both considered "performance" exhausts or just the Turbo squares.

Ha! Same. I'm lucky enough she approved the M3 I was not about to argue over fox red. Same goes for a Macan.
