Porsche doesn’t want its customers thinking that the new Macan will just be a rebadged Q5.

According to Wolfgang Hatz, Porsche’s R&D chief, the Macan is “not a Q5 with a Porsche hat on.” Everything has been modified. Engines, transmissions, suspension — it’s all new. Audi can’t believe what we’ve done.”

Hatz said that Audi shouldn’t be afraid to lost any customers since the Macan appeals to a totally differnet crowd.
