Porsche continues its 20-year tradition of high performace open sportscars with the new 911 Turbo Cabriolet. Among the highlights are a remarkable drag coefficient of 0.31 and a weight increase of just 70 kg compared to the Coupé. It will go on sale on September 2007.


Porsche 911 CabrioletAs with the Coupé version, the 2+2 classic soft top Cabriolet will also be powered by a 3.6 liter six-cylinder boxer engine with biturbo turbocharging and Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG).

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.

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).
