LOS ANGELES--With electric vehicles being one of the main story lines at the LA Auto Show here this week, some other news may have gotten lost in the shuffle. But if you were at the Porsche press conference, where the German automaker unveiled its Cayman R, its presentation of a video celebrating 60 years of its cars in America was worth watching (see video below).
Accompanied by models dressed in the garb of each decade that Porsche has been selling cars in the United States, the presentation was clearly a trip down memory lane for many in the audience. But it was also nostalgic even for those who hadn't been driving--or dreaming about driving--Porsches all those years.
Next up for Porsche may well be a hybrid version of its newfour-door car. And with its sales recovered from a recession-driven rough patch, it seems the company may well be on to its next 60 years here.
