We have a boatload of new photos of the infamous Zotye SR8 Porsche Macan clone from China, showing a whole flock of the things on a factory parking lot, and they come in every color. The Zotye SR8 will debut on the Chengdu Auto Show in early September and launch on the Chinese car market soon thereafter.
But there is bigger news: we hear that Zotye has decided to rename the SR8 to… SR9. No official confirmation yet but Zotye does this kind of fuzzy all the time, so we wouldn’t be surprised.

This is not the Porsche Macan. This is the Zotye T700, a Chinese clone of the Porsche Macan. And as a clone, it is almost perfect, up until the mirrors abd the roof rails. The only real differences are the shape of the grille and the design of the lower part of the bumper. Otherwise a 1:1.
