Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Cabriolet
From Porsche press: With a sure-footed, four-wheel drive powertrains, the enhanced look that comes with their “wide-body” styling, and with tops that open or close at the touch of a button, the all-new, 2006 Porsche® 911 Carrera 4 and 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolets truly are sports cars that can be enjoyed year around and regardless of the season.
Both Cabriolets feature flared wheel arches designed to accommodate a widened track, larger wheels and tires and four-wheel-drive powertrains that give the venerable Porsche 911 additional dimensions of dynamic stability, especially in inclement weather conditions.
The 2006 911 Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S Cabriolets were designed and developed in parallel with the fixed-roof versions of these Porsche sports cars. Instead of merely taking a Coupe, cutting off its top and then reinforcing its structure with weighty panels, Porsche engineers were able to provide the pleasures of open-top motoring by designing a vehicle that offers the stiffness and strength needed without adding unwanted weight. The result is outstanding dynamic performance with exceptional safety protection.
Both the 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and 2006 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolets have powerful engines. For those who want even more, the X51 Power Kit is available to boost the output of the already more powerful Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet. Featuring revised cylinder heads, carbon-fiber air cleaner housing, an aluminum air intake system, a reprogrammed engine control unit, and revised exhaust manifolds with sport exhaust and specially tuned tailpipes, the kit increases power, cuts acceleration times and increases the top track speed of this special model.
