The new 2014 Porsche Cayman has been designed on the lines of the 911 Carerra. It will be featured at the upcoming LA Auto Show 2012 and Porsche will hope to silence its competitors with this superior designed model. Spy photos leaked a few days back have showed this model to have everything in common with a 911 Carrera.

Presented to the audience in a smaller package experts believe that the vehicle will be powered by a 2.7 liter six cylinder engine capable of producing 275 to 325 hp of power. The Cayman S could be expected to produce 325 hp of power and will be powered by a 3.4 liter 6-cylinder engine similar to the one in the base model 911 Carerra.

Apart from the new 2014 Cayman model, Porsche will also be showcasing the new 911 Carerra 4 and 4S model at the upcoming LA Auto Show. These two versions will be available in a coupe or convertible option equipped with an all wheel drive.

Auto news release: Porsche at the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show

Los Angeles. 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 coupé 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 325Â hp; 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.

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.
