The latest image gallery reveals a series of lightly camouflaged Macan prototypes undergoing final testing and assessment work in the US, taking tarmac, mud, dirt and desert in their stride.

Giving us our clearest look at Porsche’s all-new luxury mid-sized SUV to date, the images come just days after the German manufacturer released the first teaser video, image and sketches, as well as a snapshot of the car’s specifications.

Leaked slides purportedly shown at a Porsche dealer conference in Atlanta, US, late last month indicated the Macan line-up would feature a 3.0-litre Macan S and a 3.6-litre Macan Turbo, among other models. The base model Macan and Macan Diesel nameplates are expected to be available from launch.

Production of the Porsche Macan will begin at the brand’s assembly plant in Leipzig, Germany.

The Macan will offer a premium rival to the likes of the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Range Rover Evoque when it arrives in Australian showrooms in mid 2014.
