The unit delivers 480 hp (353 kW) and 620 Nm of torque at 1950 rpm which can be temporary increased up to 680 Nm thanks to the the new, optional “Sport Chrono Turbo Package”, which includes an overboost function, up to 680 Nm is even intermittently possible.
The manual transmission version can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just four seconds. With Tiptronic S the time can be cut to 3.8 seconds.
In spite of the convertible-specific reinforcement of the chassis and automatic and the extendable rollover protection behind the rear seats, the open version of the 911 Turbo only weighs 70 kilos more than the Coupé.
The light, three-layer soft top, which can completely automatically be opened or closed in roughly 20 seconds, enables a low balance point.
With a drag coefficient of Cw=0.31, the 911 Turbo Cabriolet travels at the level of the coupé models.
Together with the rear spoiler, which automatically extends at speeds from 120 km/h – extending 30 mm further than with the Coupé, the vehicle is the only standard series convertible that generates negative lift at the rear axle.
Among the optionals is the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) ceramic brake system.
The basic price in euro for the Turbo Cabriolet is EUR 126,600. In Germany the price is EUR 150,862 (including VAT and country-specific requirements).
