Awesome Porsche Cars Debut at LA Auto Show

In the world of sports cars, few brands are as recognized and respected as Porsche. Few brands are as lusted after by enthusiasts as well. Porsche has pulled the wraps off some awesome new sports cars at the LA Auto Show. They are sweet enough to make me wish I went to med school. The Porsche Cayman R has made its first North American appearance at the show.

Introducing this model to the crowd of media was Porsche's Chairman, Matthias Mueller. "Today we are actually celebrating two premieres: this is the first time since I took over as Chief Executive Officer of Porsche last month that I can address a major media crowd outside of Europe and, at the same time, introduce a brand new sports car," said Mueller. "It is fitting that this happens in the United States, still our most important market and, by far, the biggest for Porsche sports cars."

The new R is a hopped up version of the mid-engine Cayman and is the lightest and most powerful of the Cayman/Boxter line. The hot R model shaves 161 pounds off the weight of other Cayman models and has a 3.4L six-cylinder engine with direct Fuel Injection good for ten HP more than the Cayman S mustered last year. The Cayman R will land in the US next year at a MSRP of $66,300.

The big brother to the Cayman, the epic Porsche 911 also saw the unveiling of the new Porsche 911 Carrera GTS and the 911 Speedster. The GTS gets an extra 23HP compared to the Carrera S. Despite the extra power, the car is still fuel efficient considering it’s a pure sports car with 19mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. The GTS will come in coupe or cabriolet versions with the Coup starting at $103,100 and the Cabrio starting at $112,900.

The 911 Speedster will be a very limited production vehicle with only 356 of the cars being built to celebrate the original 356 Speedster. The Speedster will get a 408hp 3.8L flat-six and will be offering in a color called Pure Blue developed specifically for the car. If blue isn't your color the car will be offered in white as well.
