I tried to buy a new GT3 with a post-dated check (December 22, 2012) and they wouldn't take it. This is pretty disturbing as it confirms that the 21st will be the end of the world as far as Porsche is concerned.Don't wait until the next model, buy the Gen II ASAP before the end of the world 2012 :hilarious:
That means we still have time to make our government heel and repeal this nonsense. Write your Congressmen now. Abolish the EPA.It is reasonable to expect many new model variations for model year 2012 (arriving later 2011 or early 2012). Boxsters/Caymans are likely to be adapted.
This is because there will be significantly tighter environmental restrictions starting 2012 in USA , Canada, Korea, Japan, and Western Europe.
Essentially a car maker must reduce emissions by 40% across its total line up by 2012. Naturally any large car or SUV is not going to cut it, so (just like now) auto companies use their smaller enginer cars to excel at efficiency and reduce pollution so that their large vehicles can still be sold.
It is likely that the Boxster/Cayman will receives smaller and more efficient engines to compensate for the 911's thirsty and dirty engine. The Porsche SUV will go diesel/hybrod to compensate for the happy new Porsche 4-door being one of the dirtiest guzzlers of the 21st century.

That would be the Geneva Auto Show 4-14 March 2010. It's Europe's biggest auto show.Are there any car shows within the next 60 days?
Yes I agree that it'll be the lightweight version of the Cayman... please note tha IAA (Frankfurt) is bigger than Geneva... in fact the World's largest. Although it only happens every two years. So this year you are correct! :hilarious:
