Porsche‘s hard-core Cayman ClubSport (CS for short) is rumored to debut at the LA Auto Show in December. Inspired by the Boxster Spyder, the Cayman CS is expected to use a version of that car’s direct-injection 3.4-liter flat-six to make at least 330-hp. Along with a lower curb weight (The Boxster Spyder weighs 176-lbs less than a stock model), the car will get a 7-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission and hit 60 mph in roughly 4.5 seconds. Pricing is expected to be around $65,300.

In addition, Porsche is expected to introduce a new limited edition 911 Speedster model at the Paris Auto Show. It will be limited to just 100 models and feature the Carrera 4S widebody but will be rear-wheel drive. It will come with a 408-hp 3.8-liter flat-six, combined with Porsche’s impressive 7-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. Other highlights will include a limited-slip differential, PCCB brakes and 19-inch wheels. In true Speedster style, it will come exclusively with just two seats and be offered in either blue or white. It won’t be cheap, however, with an MSRP close to $200,000.

Then at the Geneva Auto Show in the Spring, Porsche will deliver the Carrera GTS. It will get unique styling, a sport exhaust and center locking wheels. Like the 911 Speedster it will get the same 408-hp engine, but will be offered with a 6-speed transmission. It will also be rear-drive but with the wider body and track. Both a Coupe and Cabriolet will be offered priced at $103,100 and $112,900 respectively.
