A recently discovered patent is suggesting the 2012 Porsche 911 Cabrio could feature a new roof that is part hardtop and part soft top.

The odd design certainly raises some eyebrows, but the roof section would apparently be metal while the rear window area has traditional canvas. This could help to eliminate the ungainly styling that is associated with folding metal roofs, but it also defeats some of the security benefits which are inherit in that design.

Thanks for the tip Giannis!
