Volkswagen to show new mid-sized sedan at Detroit, Porsche to show 918 Spyder Coupe

Porsche 918 Spyder

The 2011 Detroit Auto Show is just a couple of days away and we’re really looking forward to the first auto show of 2011. While we’ve already seen a bunch of Detroit Auto Show previews, reports today suggest that Volkswagen will finally show its much anticipated new mid-sized sedan for the American market at the show.

The sedan will go on sale in the second half of 2011 after being produced at Volkswagen’s new factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It will be a 2012 model year vehicle.

Porsche, which is on its way to becoming the 10th brand under the Volkswagen Group umbrella has already promised us “something spectacular” at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show. So far, we’ve been thinking that Porsche will show us a production version of the 918 Spyder concept, but according to reports Porsche will show a 918 Spyder Coupe concept. The Porsche 918 Spyder originally made its debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show in roadster form.

Please make sure you join us next week as we bring you live coverage of the 2011 Detroit Auto Show.
