Porsche executives say it is too early to know what changes Volkswagen ownership will bring to Porsche's product program. But one thing is certain: Porsche's first four-door model will go on sale this month.
Here are highlights of the current product plan for the United States.
Entry-level roadster: Porsche management had nixed the idea of a low-priced roadster based on the mid-engine, two-passenger Volkswagen BlueSport expected in 2011. But the project has the backing of VW executives, so the situation could change.
Boxster: The sports car was freshened this year. Minor interior changes were made, including the addition of a larger touch screen for audio, navigation and communication information.
The Boxster may use the Audi TTS' 2.0-liter four-cylinder inline engine. That would give Porsche a lower-priced model and improve the brand's corporate fuel economy average.
Cayman: The coupe derivative of the Boxster received a mild freshening this year.
911: The 2010 911 GT3 has Porsche's new direct injection, 435-hp, 3.8-liter, six-cylinder Boxster engine. U.S. sales begin in January with a $113,150 sticker price, including shipping.
Porsche also adds the GT3 RS, a street-legal version of its race-car package. The car has a 450-hp version of the 3.8-liter engine. U.S. sales begin next spring with a sticker price of $133,750, including shipping.
Porsche says the 3.8-liter engine is its first all-new engine in 35 years.
Panamera: Porsche is launching its first four-door on Oct. 17. Three V-8 models will be available initially. A six-cylinder model arrives next year followed by a hybrid in 2011. The U.S. market is expected to account for one-third of the planned annual volume of 20,000 units when full production is reached.
Cayenne: Porsche will redesign the SUV next year. The Cayenne will continue to share a platform with the VW Touareg and Audi Q7. The new Cayenne is expected to have a shorter wheelbase than today's model. A hybrid model is expected in 2011.
