Porsche to Unwrap New or Special Edition Mid-Engine Sports Car at LA Show

This just in; Porsche announced today that it will present a world premiere of "a mid-engine sports car" at next week's Los Angeles Auto Show. The Stuttgart automaker did not get into any details, but unless it's the production version of the 918 Spyder hybrid flagship, our guess would be it's either a special edition or a new version of one of the Boxster roadster or Cayman coupe models.

Alongside the world premiere of the mystery mid-engine sports car, Porsche's LA Show stand will also host two U.S. debuts, the 911 Carrera GTS and the 911 Speedster.

The new 911 Carrera GTS combines the 44 millimetre wider Carrera 4 body of the AWD models including wider track with a classic rear-wheel drive setup, and a upgraded 3.8-liter flat-six with 408 ponies.

The small series production 911 Speedster pays homage to the legendary 356 and comes with a 60 millimetre shorter windscreen and the characteristic double bubble on the convertible-top compartment lid. It also is powered by a 408 hp six-cylinder engine linked to Porsche's PDK double-clutch transmission.
