Porsche announced for quite some time that its 2012 911 will show its face to the public at next week’s Frankfurt Auto Show. So far, so good, but what if you’re an American and can’t travel to Europe to see Porsche’s fresh rear-engined coupe? Stay calm, because the German company has already thought about it and found the solution: the car will make its North American debut at the Rennsport Reunion IV, held at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, near Monterey, California, from October 14-16.
The 2012 Porsche 991-generation 911 will be powered by a 3.4-liter, 350-horsepower boxer six-cylinder (Carrera) and 3.8-liter, 400-horsepower boxer six (Carrera S). Both cars can be had with the optional PDK transmission or the new seven-speed manual. For more details and video, click here.
The 2012 Porsche 911 will be available at U.S. dealerships starting in February 2012 with a base MSRP of $82,100 for the Carrera and $96,400 for the Carrera S, plus destination charges and before dipping into what will doubtlessly be an extensive list of options.
This car will make its world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show next week, and the official North American debut will be at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November. Stay tuned for details.
