|The 911 Turbo Cabriolet is the latest version to join Porsche’s iconic sports car line-up. To be exhibited at the Los Angeles Auto Show on 20 November, the 911 Turbo Cabriolet is obviously an open-top that coincides with everything 911!|
Two versions, standard and Turbo S, become the top-of-the-line versions in the 911 portfolio. By adding the two new leading 911 models into the mix, Porsche is doubling its offering of the top-of-the-range versions to four versions.
Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet takes a wider rear and magnesium roof arch
In looks, not much has changed; albeit a wider rear wing, an exclusive Porsche panel bow top with its lightweight magnesium frame or roof arch, and larger proportions: 28 mm wider than the 911 Carrera 4s. The roof arch opens and closes in around 13 seconds, at speeds of up to 50 km/h.
The S Turbo Cabrio has an abundance of interior furnishings, including Black/Carrera Red and adaptive Sport Seat Plus seatswith 18-way adjustment and memory; leather trimmed with double cap seams backrest shells of the seats; and plenty of carbon fittings. As with the predecessors, the Bose sound system is fitted as standard or a Burmester system as an option.
The turbocharged 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine delivers 520 bhp in the standard 911 Turbo and 560 bhp in the S version. The cars accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 and 3.2 seconds respectively, reaching a top speed of up to 318 km/h. And all this while achieving fuel consumption figures below the ten-liter limit. Both of Cabriolets rest assured in the NEDC, boasting figures of 9.9 l/100 km. When compared against the respective predecessors, the latest sports open-tops deliver 30 bhp more power and are 0.2 seconds faster in terms of their standard acceleration. They are also up to 15% more efficient.
Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolets with enhanced driving dynamics
Boasting PDK dual-clutch transmission as standard and the new PTM all-wheel drive, as well as featuring rear-axle steering, suitable for roads & tracks, and active aerodynamics, the 911 Turbo Cabrios are just as consistent as the Coupe versions if not better. And thanks to active aerodynamics at a push of a switch, the Cabrios’ driving dynamics are greatly enhanced!
