LOS ANGELES, Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Porsche is celebrating the world
premiere of the new Cayman at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show. The third
generation of the Cayman, which is making its appearance before an
international audience at the LA Convention Center, has been re-engineered
from the ground up – it is lower and longer, lighter and faster, more
efficient and more powerful than ever. The two-seat sport coupe will be
launched on the market in two versions: Cayman and Cayman S. A longer
wheelbase, wider track and larger wheels enhance the driving performance of
the mid-engine sports car to a level without equal in its competitive class.

Delivering more power with even better fuel economy than before, any of two
highly efficient flat-six cylinder engines is mounted just in front of the
rear axle, surrounded by its lightweight aluminium and steel body. The Cayman
is powered by a 2.7-liter engine with 275 hp; with the Sport Chrono package it
accelerates from a standstill to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds. The 3.4-liter engine
in the Cayman S produces 325hp; with PDK and the Sport Chrono package it
sprints from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds.

The new Cayman will arrive dealerships in Spring 2013 starting at $52,600 for
the Cayman and $63,800 for the Cayman S, not including a destination charge of
$950. For more information about the Cayman including full technical

In addition to the world premiere of the new Cayman, the 911 Carrera 4 and the
Panamera Platinum Edition are celebrating their North American debuts at the
show. The Carrera 4 models are distinguished by their 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 and is priced from $91,030, not including a $950
destination charge, and goes on sale early next year.

The Panamera Platinum Edition, available in Panamera and all-wheel-drive
Panamera 4 configurations, stands out thanks to subtle, independent design
features in platinum silver metallic combined with expanded standard features
and exclusive details. The base M.S.R.P for the Panamera Platinum Edition will
be $80,500. The Panamera 4 Platinum Edition will have a base M.S.R.P of
$84,600. Prices do not include the $975 destination charge. Panamera Platinum
Edition models go on sale in January of 2013.
