Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

From Porsche press: The 911 Carrera and 911 Carrera S Cabriolets’ dynamic control is further enhanced by the installation of Porsche Stability Management (PSM), a technology that can apply braking to a single wheel to help keep the car on the driver’s intended line, as standard equipment.

For the 2006 model year, all Porsche 911 Carrera and 911 Carrera S Cabriolets also offer two- stage front airbag systems as standard equipment. The 911 Carrera and 911 Carrera S Cabriolets — along with the new Porsche Boxster and Boxster S — already were the first convertibles to feature airbags that deploy from their housings in the door windowsills that help protect occupants' heads in the event of an impact from the side. With the new front airbag technology, thorax-protecting side airbags that emerge from the seat backs, and supplemental safety bars behind the rear seats that automatically extend when sensors detect even the potential of a rollover situation, the 2006 911 Carrera Cabriolet models are engineered to provide optimum occupant protection.

Porsche’s 3.6-liter, horizontally opposed six-cylinder “boxer” engine provides 325 (SAE) horsepower for the 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet.

The convertibles also offer a standard six-speed manual or an optional five-speed Tiptronic® S gearbox with shift buttons on the steering wheel, variable-ratio rack-and- pinion steering, Porsche Active Suspension Management, an optional Sport Chrono Package Plus that records and displays lap times, as well as a passenger compartment with several seating options and a long list of active and passive safety equipment.
