One of the stars of last week’s 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show was Porsche’s all-new 2015 Macan crossover
. The vehicle goes on sale in the first half of next year, initially in more potent Macan S and Macan Turbo trim. We can now reveal how much Porsche will be charging for the new crossover thanks to pricing information posted up on an online configurator.MUST SEE: Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo: 2013 L.A. Auto Show Video
The 2015 Macan S will set you back $51,095, including destination, while the 2015 Macan Turbo will cost you $73,495, once again including destination. That makes the Macan, in its cheapest Macan S trim, more expensive than a base Boxster (by $1,595) and a base Cayenne (by $500), however, it should be noted that a less expensive base Macan will be launched at a later date and will likely become the most affordable model in the Porsche lineup. This base Macan is expected to come with a new four-cylinder engine
currently in the works at Porsche.
The Macan S comes with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 good for 340 horsepower while the Macan Turbo sports a twin-turbo 3.6-liter V-6 with 400 horsepower on tap. Both come with Porsche’s seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive as standard, and can dish out 0-60 mph runs in about 5.0 seconds or less.CHECK OUT: 2015 Cadillac Escalade: 2013 L.A.

As we are
talking about a Porsche, there are plenty of options for the Macan that can see its pricetag almost double. Items include a panoramic roof ($1,670), Sport Chrono package ($1,290), 21-inch wheels ($3,300), Burmester sound system ($5,690 for the Macan S, $4,290 for the Macan Turbo), Porsche logo on the wheel centers ($185) and much, much more. In fact, there are nine separate categories for all the options.
