Porsche is set to debut its updated Macan model at the Paris Auto Show. The model, the first major remodel in four years, has received significant feature upgrades in a bid to compete with Jaguar’s F-Pace.

If that is the case, the Macan hybrid will include a turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine alongside an electric motor pushing the system output to 456hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. Read more.
