We spotted the 2012 Porsche 911 coupe, without any camouflage and you are in brown!!! Only one month to go before Porsche unveils the cover of 2012 Porsche 911 at 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, but the video pretty much quench our thirst on what does the 2012 Porsche 911 coupe look like.

Based on the video teaser couple of weeks ago, we knew that the 2012 Porsche 911 had few secrets. Now, a very kind German spotted the 2012 Porsche 911 coupe while refill the tank as gas station. No camouflage, just brown-chopper paint on the 2012 Porsche 911.

The way we see it, the brown/chopper color on the 2012 Porsche 911 coupe indicated that Porsche wants to revive its 80s color pallet. Back then, it was glory day for the Porsche 928 which then rebirth into a Porsche Panamera coupe form which probably arrive in about three years from now.

Judging by the video and the photos of the 2012 Porsche 911 coupe, it seems like Porsche does bring the Porsche Targa alive, though it’s just a huge retractable glass roof, and not the split design we have been hoping for. Just to remind you that the 2012 Porsche 911 coupe has the interior based on the Pamanera’s center console, and the engine is much likely to be a 3.4L V6 for the Carrera and a revised 3.8L for the Carrera S and 4S. So, again, we have to hold our curiosity until the 2012 Porsche 911 coupe gets its official reveal at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show.

Obviously, this wouldn’t be possible because as for now, the 2012 Mercedes-Benz SL coupe sedan still covered in heavy black plastic like Darth Vader from Star Wars. So, as we are facing some hot summer days, the specialists at Mercedes-Benz in charge with the project decided to lose some of the ‘clothes’.

Rumors: Is It True that Audi A2 Will Turn into Electric?

Audi A2

Audi A2 four-door hatchback has been missing for quit sometimes. It is no longer a secret that Audi is planning an invasion of electric vehicles in the not-so-distant future. And invasion which will be carried out under the e-tron banner. So, what is Audi next project on the e-tron version? It is none other than the Audi A2 four-door hatchback.

In short time that the e-tron idea has been among us, Audi has presented more than a handful of electric variants of both concepts and existing models. Whereas 2010 was the year for the Audi A1 e-tron, apparently, Audi now decided to give the model which will revive the Audi A2 four-door hatchback line-up with an electric version as well.

According to local newspaper, Audi plans to bring the invented Audi A2 four-door hatchback as an e-tron at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show later in the year. The single novelty is all this is the venue Audi chose for the unveiling, as word about the e-tron Audi A2 four-door hatchback has been around for more than a year now.

Unlike what some sources on the internet are saying, it is unlikely that the Audi A2 four-door hatchback will turn into an electric vehicle only model.

Audi A2 four-door hatchback next generation, will the first in a long time because the model was discontinued in 2005 as a result in of very poor sales, but the greed with which mother group Volkswagen is pursuing Toyota for the number one position calls for some risky moves.  The Chief of the R&D Department – Michael Dick stated, “Recognisable as an Audi A2 four-door hatchback, but very different from the old car. We will not make the same mistake as with the first Audi A2 four-door hatchback and do it all by ourselves.”
