Meet the New Porsche 911 Cabriolet
Porsche has revealed the new 911 Cabriolet, the second member of its new 992-generation 911 family. The new soft-top shares its launch line-up with the new 911 coupé, which means the rear-wheel-drive Carrera S and four-wheel-drive Carrera 4S models will also be offered.
Power for both cars comes from the same 3.0-litre, flat-six twin-turbocharged engine, producing 450hp and 530Nm of torque. When equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package, the Carrera S can reach 100 km/h in just 3.7sec and the Carrera 4S in 3.6sec. The Carrera S’ top speed is 306kph, while the four-wheel drive 4S can reach a maximum of 304kph.
The 911 Cabriolet shares its basic exterior and interior design with the coupé. The roof's design includes an integrated glass rear window and technology that prevents it from ballooning at higher speeds, and there's an electrically extendable wind deflector that can be deployed when the roof is down.
A first for the model is the option of Porsche’s Active Suspension Management system, which brings with it stiffer, shorter springs, a 10mm-lower ride height and stiffer anti-roll bars. A new wet driving mode new Wet driving mode detects when the car is travelling on a wet surface and prepares the chassis and its electronic systems to tackle the tricky condition.
