Porsche Macan

Another card up Porsche's sleeves would be the Macan - a midsize SUV squarely aimed at the BMW X3, Mercedes ML Class and Land Rover Freelander.

Unlike the Pajun, the Porsche Macan will not be developed grounds up but will be based on Audi's Q5 platform.

However, Porsche engineers will fine-tune the chassis and develop their own dynamic control systems. It will feature engines from the Volkswagen family tuned for maximum power and torque outputs. The Macan is scheduled to go into production in 2013.

Porsche has a selection of extremely capable vehicles ready to hit the market within a span of 4 years. However, the Stuttgart maker also has a major challenge to maintain the premiumness of the brand.

Currently, Porsche sit between luxury brands like Mercedes-Benz and BMW and sports brands like Ferrari and Lamborghini. This unique positioning gives Porsche its identity - a daily usable car with supercar capabilities.

Will Porsche maintain its essence in the newer products as well? Only time will tell.
