Though the boys and girls from Stuttgart are keeping their cards close to their chest for the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show, we think we know what's going on here.
Porsche has officially announced that it will be premiering two sports cars at the LA show but kept details mum about one of the players. For those of you who are interested, the other vehicle is the 911 (991) Carrera 4.
Now the other one is said to be a "compact sports car." While there's been plenty of discussion and rumors of something that would be sub-Boxster, realistically we haven't seen any mules driving around.
However, what is much more feasible is the debut of the Cayman.
From the spy photos that we've seen, we're eagerly anticipating seeing the Cayman in the flesh for the first time because it will definitely sport a sleeker look as opposed to the first-generation car.
In addition, I happen to love the Cayman after driving the "R," it is SO choice...

On the path to success in the world's largest Porsche market
Two Premieres Planned for 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show
Atlanta. Porsche is continuing its sustained success in the U.S. with a world premiere and a North American premiere planned for the upcoming 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show.
The U.S. continues to be Porsche's largest market, with more than 28,226 vehicles delivered in the first ten months of this year. This represents a gain of 13 percent compared to last year during the same period, when 24,934 vehicles were sold. In October 2012 alone, 3,211 Porsche cars were delivered to customers in the U.S., a substantial increase of 41 percent over last October.
The world premiere of a compact sports car at the Los Angeles Auto Show will add impetus to this trend. Porsche will reveal the new vehicle to international media at 12:05 pm on Nov. 28 during a press conference at the Porsche show stand.
Celebrating its North American debut at the show is the 911 Carrera 4, which is distinguished by its 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.
With these two U.S. sports car premieres, Porsche hopes to generate ideal conditions for continued sales success and growth in the world's largest Porsche market.
