Porsche has hinted in a recent press release at a "spectacular" Detroit debut for an unspecified model and the production 918 Spyder seems the likeliest bet.

Or it may just be the most wishful.

But Porsche has not been at the Detroit show in years and they would want to return with a splash.

Last month, they did release a photo of a clay model 918 Spyder even featuring a side exhaust pipe.
