Porsche 918 Model – Click above for high-res image gallery

It's been nearly four years since Porsche pulled out of the Detroit Auto Show, but next month the German automaker is coming back to Motor City and will mark its return with an all-new concept.

Porsche spokesperson Hans-Gerd Bode told Bloomberg in a recent interview that the automaker will "have something spectacular to show," but failed to go into detail.

Early reports indicate the automaker will debut a supercar concept, possibly a new iteration of the 918 Spyder that debuted at the Geneva Motor Show this past March. The concept could be based on a more production-ready version of the 918's platform and possibly pack a conventional powertrain rather than the hybrid drivetrain fitted to the original concept.

Porsche's return to Detroit comes amidst the Volkswagen Group's expanded marketing push in the States, with the sports car maker joining VAG's other brands, including Audi and Bentley.
