PorscheBoost 2011 LA Auto Show Coverage - Pictures of the new 991 and everything else
There was much more going on in the Porsche Hall (yes, Porsche rents out their own private hall as they have for years, awesome) than just the Panamera GTS reveal. In our opinion, Porsche had the best showing out of any of the German makes. The new 991 Carrera and Carrera S were there along with several other models. Not to mention an awesome open bar and buffet setup. Porsche really knows how to throw a party.
Before the Porsche Hall Yokohama was showing off an awesome orange 911 race car featuring their rubber:
Speaking of race cars, here is the ALMS winning GTC Porsche GT3:
Here is the new 911, the 991. The Carrera and Carrera S respectively. Porsche for some reason decided to bring them in the same color. The car in person really does not look all that different from the 997 predecessor. The average person will be hard pressed to see the difference. The rear of the car is a major improvement but the front is still rather bland and needs to move in the future sooner rather than later.
Porsche was showing off hybrid models including their Panamera S Hybrid and Cayenne S Hybrid:
A temporary Porsche Design store was set up at the show where one could purchase various items. They certainly were not cheap even with tiny model cars starting at $60. Porsche Design had everything from clothing to luggage to even a mountain bike:
This redhead was super, super cute but did not get a good photo of her. Regardless, she made me want to buy a Porsche and drive around with her:
Porsche Exclusive and Tequipment options were on display. The various paint colors as well as wheels one can get were shown. This Panamera Turbo also displayed parts such as the Porsche Tequipment exhaust tips which look excellent:
There were a ton of people but Porsche had a great setup to reveal the Panamera GTS and 911 Carrera S facing a stage:
Open bar and free food, how awesome? They had bratwurst and prime rib. I would have snapped more photos but the chef / guy who cut the meat seemed to not like me photographing him:
Cayman S Black Edition with black parts, nothing much else to say:
Panamera Turbo S and standard Cayenne both on the same rims. The rims work really well on the Cayenne:
Black Panamera Turbo on some rims:
Mansory Panamera Turbo. Can not stress enough how awesome this was in person. With all that carbon fiber and the custom rear exhaust it no doubt does not come cheap but if you can afford it..
958 Cayenne Turbo with the Mansory body kit and wheels, looked great as well:
Blue 997 turbo with an awesome matte orange 997 turbo both we believe running Techart body kits:
Panamera looked great on these Vossen rims:
