The German based automaker Porsche has recently announced that its new 911 generation, in the form of the Carrera and the Carrera S, will debut on the over-seas auto market with the official presentation being made at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show.

The 2012 model year Porsche 911 has already been revealed in Europe, at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, and now the German based car manufacturer is planning to introduce it to the United States too, with the L.A. event being the best opportunity for the job.

“Dr. Ing. H.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is dispatching two new stars to the Los Angeles Auto Show 2011: the Porsche press conference in the Convention Centre on 16 November at 12:05 p.m. (PST) will put the spotlight fair and square on the debut of the new 911 Carrera on the American continent and on the world premiere of a mode boasting impressive performance and dynamic looks, exuding unadulterated driving pleasure”, as Porsche writes in the official press release.

The new generation of the 911 in its Carrera version comes with the 3.4 liter boxer engine, which is developing 345 horsepower, allowing the sports car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, or 4.2 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono Package, with a top speed of 179 mph (288 km/h), while burning an average 8.2 liters / 100 km (34 mpg) and emitting just 194 g/km of CO2, being the first car from Porsche to make it below the 200 g/km mark.

Its “larger” and more powerful brother the Carrera S is powered by a 3.8 liter boxer engine, generating 394 HP, which is enough to help the vehicle accelerate from 0 to 60 mpg in 4.1 seconds or even 3.9 seconds with the SC package, hitting a top speed of 188 mph (302 km/h), while burning 8.7 liters of fuel every 100 km and emitting 206 g/km of CO2.
