    • New 981 Cayman to make its debut at the LA Auto show this month

      The new 981 Boxster has been on the market for a little bit and obviously just as with the previous generation a Cayman will follow. Earlier this year the car was spotted completing its final round of testing so it seems Porsche is ready to make the official debut at the Los Angeles International Auto Show later this month. Porsche said they would debut a new "compact sports car" so by process of elimination, it simply has to be the new Cayman.

      PorscheBoost will be in attendance and will make sure to get all the details plus tons of photos. The Cayman is going to be a very exciting model for Porsche and hopefully it isn't quite as neutered as the Boxster. Porsche will of course still protect the 911 so don't expect any major changes from the Boxster.




      Press Release:

      On the path to success in the world's largest Porsche market
      Two Premieres Planned for 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show


      Atlanta. Porsche is continuing its sustained success in the U.S. with a world premiere and a North American premiere planned for the upcoming 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.

      The U.S. continues to be Porsche's largest market, with more than 28,226 vehicles delivered in the first ten months of this year. This represents a gain of 13 percent compared to last year during the same period, when 24,934 vehicles were sold. In October 2012 alone, 3,211 Porsche cars were delivered to customers in the U.S., a substantial increase of 41 percent over last October.

      The world premiere of a compact sports car at the Los Angeles Auto Show will add impetus to this trend. Porsche will reveal the new vehicle to international media at 12:05 pm on Nov. 28 during a press conference at the Porsche show stand.

      Celebrating its North American debut at the show is the 911 Carrera 4, which is distinguished by its prominent broad rear section and a red light strip between the rear lights. The typical Porsche all-wheel drive layout, which emphasizes power to the rear wheels, guarantees maximum driving performance on a wide variety of road surfaces and in all weather conditions. The 911 Carrera 4 was unveiled at the Paris International Motor Show in September.

      With these two U.S. sports car premieres, Porsche hopes to generate ideal conditions for continued sales success and growth in the world's largest Porsche market.
