Porsche has revealed the convertible version of the new 992 generation of the 911
In under two months after the debut of the coupe, Porsche has revealed the convertible version of the all-new 911.
Ever since the first drop-top 911 surfaced in 1982, it has been a staple of the Porsche’s 911 range ever since. With the latest model, the 911 convertible has all the innovations of the coupe in addition to a new hydraulic system that opens and closes the roof faster.
Based on the new 992 model of the 911, the cabriolet builds on the exact same design, albeit with a removable soft-top roof and an integrated glass rear window. The new model can operate the opening and closing of the roof at speed of up to 50km/h.
The 911 Cabriolet will be initially available as a rear-wheel-drive Carrera S model and the 4S with all-wheel drive. Both are powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-litre flat-six engine mounted at the rear, as tradition goes. The engine is capable of developing 443bhp and 530Nm of torque. Mated to the PDK 8-speed twin-clutch auto transmission, the Carrera S Cabriolet sprints from 0 to 100km/h in 3.9 seconds and can climb all the way up to 306km/h. While the 4S is a tenth quicker to 100km/h and maxes out to 304km/h, the optional Sports Chrono Package can help shave off two more tenths and is available for both cars.
For the first time, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) sport chassis is available for the 911 Cabriolet. The 911 sits on large 20-inch wheels at the front and 21-inch wheels at the rear. The interior is borrowed from the brand new hardtop model featuring a 10.9-inch touch screen in the centre console with the Porsche Communication Management (PCM).
