At the North American International Auto Show in Detroit (9 – 22 January,) Porsche will unveil its latest topless 911, the 911 Cabrio.  The more chaste 911 Coupé will be available in the USA starting in February 2012. The Cabriolet will follow a few months later, when the season allows public disrobing of your car.

Porsche forgot to include pictures or other technical data in its email. As a placeholder, we will show you the 911 Carrera Cabrio  Porsche had announced last November.

While announcing the stateside arrival of the strip tease artist, Porsche sets daring goals for the U.S. market. “USA sold 29,023 Cayennes, Panameras, 911s, Boxsters and Caymans to US customers,” says the press release. And this year? Prepare to be blown away:

“In the New Year 2012, the Zuffenhausen company anticipates selling more than 30,000 vehicles in the United States.”

Wow. I bet this took guts.

    Jack Baruth - Those cars are either broken or they had the button pushed. On Porsches the spoiler comes up when you exceed the programmed speed and it drops when you come to a halt.
