Excitement is abuzz with less than one day before the opening of the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show (Nov 29 to December 10). Porsche is set to introduce four brand new models to the world on top of launching the new generation Cayenne in the US. The four world premieres are the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo, the 718 Boxster GTS and the 718 Cayman GTS and the 911 Carrera T. The first three are all flagship models of their respective lines while the last but by no means the least is the lightweight purist choice.
The launch is scheduled to go down during the renowned German sportscar manufacturer’s official press conference at the Petree Hall of the Convention Center (almost) immediately after the show opens at 11:10 a.m. (8:10 p.m. Pacific Standard Time) tomorrow.
Remaining the most attractive vehicle brand for drivers in the US for the 13th consecutive time (according to J.D. Power’s latest “Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study”), Porsche continues its huge presence in the United States in 2017. Sales figures are up 2.7 percent from previous year (45, 962 vehicles delivered during first three quarters of the year). Biggest sales growths were for the new Panamera (up 52.5%) and the Macan (16.3%). The Porsche 911, Cayenne and Macan models also took the top positions in their categories.
For the moment details are scarce for the four new Porsches apart from their fuel consumption and emission figures:
