Porsche has unveiled online the new 911 Turbo and Turbo S Cabriolet ahead of their Los Angeles Auto Show public debut scheduled for November 20.
The design of both cars closely mirrors the Coupe version but with an updated retractable fabric roof which boasts a lightweight magnesium frame. Porsche says this technology has permitted the cabrio to maintain a coupe-like arch to the roof when the top is closed. The roof can be opened or closed in approximately 13 seconds at speeds of up to 30 mph (48 km/h).
Just like its fixed-roof counterpart, the 911 Turbo Cabriolet is powered by a 3.8-liter six-cylinder turbocharged engine outputting 520 HP (383 kW). The more powerful S version uses the same motor but modified to develop 560 HP (412 kW) which grants the car with a 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.1 seconds, making it 0.2s quicker than the regular version. Both versions are capable of hitting a top speed of 195 mph (314 km/h) and will return 17 mpg city / 24 mpg highway.
Scheduled to reach dealerships earl next year, the 911 Turbo Cabriolet will have a starting price of 160,700 USD while the Turbo S Cabriolet will kick off from 193,900 USD. Both prices do not include the 950 USD destination charges.
