Sorry fans, but the possible successor to the Porsche 550 of the 1950′s is going to stay in the stable for quite a while longer.
CEO Matthias Mueller of Porsche is waiting for the next generation of consumers to see if the sales numbers justify the release of such a vehicle and wont make their move until they do. If you were one of the people waiting for the mid-engine drop top Mueller announced in February of last year for a 2014 release, then you probably want to take up a hobby to pass the time. There really isn't any telling how long this will take.
On the other hand, if you're just Porsche-bound and eager for something that isn't already on the market, there is still the small Cajun SUV to look forward to in the 2013 model year and the 2013 Boxster (pictured above) to fulfill that convertible craving.
