    Los Angeles Porsche launch

    For the Los Angeles Auto Show, Porsche has announced "the world premiere of a model boasting impressive performance and dynamic looks, exuding unadulterated driving pleasure."

    Has anybody an idea of what it will be ?

    The only thing I know is that it is not the Boxster or the 991 four wheel drive...

    Re: Los Angeles Porsche launch

    The new range between GT2 and 918?

    With such an announcement, they know that people will expect something quite special...


    Re: Los Angeles Porsche launch

    I was just going to post the same question: performance, looks and driving pleasure... its got to be a sportcar 

    Porsche at the Los Angeles Auto Show 2011

    US premiere of the new 911 Carrera and a world premiere

    Stuttgart. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is despatching two new stars to the Los Angeles Auto Show 2011: the Porsche press conference in the Convention Centre on 16 November at 12:05 p.m. (PST) will put the spotlight fair and square on the debut of the new 911 Carrera on the American continent and on the world premiere of a model boasting impressive performance and dynamic looks, exuding unadulterated driving pleasure.

    Still guessing that it will be the debut of Boxster and / or Cayman. It would be quite a surprise if the latter would be presented first, the convertible version successively.


    Re: Los Angeles Porsche launch

    I am thinking the 991 cabs.

    It is not the Boxster (info from Porsche staff)

    It is not supposed to be a 991 version according to the same Porsche staff that gave me the info for the Boxster...

    Re: Los Angeles Porsche launch

    It can only be the new sub-918 mid-engined junior supercar.

    Presenting anything else will be a joke, given the expectations created by the description.

    You said it all. Just... We can most probably expect an joke...Smiley

    By that I mean that even some kind of mid engine future sportscar study will be a joke. At least for me.

    Can you please elaborate Kreso? Are you saying your dissapointed with what your sources have confirmed regarding the sub-918 supercar? I have extremely high expectations for this car so I hope that is not the case. Or is this the world premier of the 550 spyder (sub-boxster mid engine sports car)?


    Re: Los Angeles Porsche launch

    sub-918 sportscar is not ready yet. In fact it needs at least 2 years of development until we see some mules.

    So, Porsche can show us either some sub-918 design study or 550 as you predicted. In both cases it will be a joke since very high expectations are created by Press release as reginos correctly pointed out.

    BTW, little info about new R8(some things are published today in Auto Bild which are accurate according to my source) V10 NA, at least 550ps and 7 speed DCT.


    Re: Los Angeles Porsche launch

    Thanks Kreso! Once again on the cutting edge with Porsche insider info. I still look forward to the sub-918, Porsche is fully capable of building a class leader in this segment.


    Re: Los Angeles Porsche launch

    I think that is the most likely scenario, they are likely going to present a mid-engined 458 rival but in reality it will be just an intangible concept design to test the waters, just like they did with the 918.

    Re: Los Angeles Porsche launch

    Porsche has been showing the 918 to small groups, so perhaps they are going to introduce it at LA Autoshow.

    My thoughts exactly. 918 final production version.

    The GT3 RSR...?

    Pictures just released on Carbuzz - perhaps this will be the first "in the flesh" unveiling..?

    Re: Los Angeles Porsche launch

    987 Boxster production finished back in June so how can they still show the 987 at LA? 997 cabrio production is still going and my dealer says he is ordering those models now for February delivery. The 987 Cayman is staying in production until March so it certainly won't be that model and it would be crazy for Porsche to show a new 550 model before the launch of the 981 Boxster as the 550 will be a cheaper car to buy and could steal 981 sales if shown first.

    To add further intrigue Autocar were reporting that Porsche may delay the introduction of the sub 918 V8 car as they want to develop the platform for it and not use the second generation R8/Gallardo platform which they have had no input into. I would take that with a pinch of salt though as Autocar said that could mean delaying the introduction to 2020.

    The only other model that could be conceivably displayed to test the market reaction is possibly  the Cajun as an early styling exercise? Now they have access to the Q5 a reskin of that model should be possible for a show display car.


    Re: Los Angeles Porsche launch

    The Cajun croseed my mind but description they gave of impressive performance and unadulterated driving pleasure fits this car the least out of the whole model range

    Re: Los Angeles Porsche launch

    Carlos,

    Can you imagine Porsche marketing describing the Cajun as having anything other than "impressive performance and unadulterated driving pleasure"? smiley


    Re: Los Angeles Porsche launch

    And how about the Pajun/928 successor?

    Unfortunately, in 2011, I can.

    Re: Los Angeles Porsche launch

    ...so which of these will be unveiled by Porsche at the LA Auto Show?

    Re: Los Angeles Porsche launch

    Or to everyone's surprise it could be another Black Edition of some sort.

    Re: Los Angeles Porsche launch

    Perhaps it's the Cayenne "Greek Bail Out" Edition. It's half price but the owners must declare it on their tax returns smiley
