The 8th Porsche 911 generation already has open version. The 911 Cabriolet has been unveiled and its range has been introduced in Carrera S and Carrera 4S variants, both of which are powered by a 450PS/530Nm 3.0-litre, 6-cylinder, twin-turbocharged boxer engine – the same as the Coupe variants.
There are a lot of significant chassis changes including staggered wheels—20s up front and 21s out back for S models—and wider tracks front and rear. The interior’s been revised, too, and it’s all quite snazzy. And the top can now open and close in 12 seconds at speeds of up to 31 mph, which is much quicker than the 30 seconds it took the previous 911.
One of fastest cabriolet cars
The two-wheel drive Carrera S does the 0-100kmph run in 3.9 seconds, while the AWD Carrera 4S does the same in 3.8 seconds. Adding the Sports Chrono package shaves off 0.2 seconds in both the variants. For now, both the Cabriolets are only available with Porsche’s 8-speed PDK transmission.
