And Now There Is One....Porsche Boxster / Cayman Declared 2013 World Performance Car

NEW YORK, March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- At a press conference hosted by the New York International Auto Show and Bridgestone Corporation, the Porsche Boxster / Cayman was declared the 2013 World Performance Car.

This is the second consecutive year that Porsche has won the prestigious World Performance Car title and the third overall.  The Porsche 911 won last year's award and the Porsche Cayman won the inaugural World Performance Car award in 2006.

The Porsche Boxster / Cayman was chosen from an initial entry list of twenty new cars from all over the world, then a short list of ten, then three finalists:  the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, the Porsche Boxster / Cayman and the combined entry Scion FR-S / Subaru BRZ / Toyota 86 / GT 86.    

" To be chosen as the winner of the World Performance Car by this global jury is extremely rewarding," said Detlev von Platen, president and CEO of Porsche Cars North America. " The new Boxster is a serious sports car and has become a worldwide success. Its brother, the new Cayman, is launching this month and has already captivated sports car enthusiasts around the world."

The World Car jurors observed that, "The Job One for this new generation of Porsche's littler two-doors was actually two-fold. The Boxster needed to be seen as less of a fancy secretary's car and the Cayman needed to be set loose to be an even better Porsche sports car than the iconic 911. In both instances, mission over-accomplished. Both cars are now allowed out of their company cages and they drive as if they're celebrating."

Candidates for the World Performance Car award must demonstrate a specific and overt sports/performance orientation while satisfying the same availability criteria as for the overall World Car of the Year award.  Candidates may be chosen from the World Car of the Year list of eligible vehicles, or they may be newly introduced variants that satisfy the same criteria, but are derived from existing rather than brand-new models. In all cases, they must have a minimum annual production rate of five-hundred (500) vehicles.
