Cabriolet roll-over protection concept

Despite their low weight, the 911 Carrera Cabriolet models have exemplary torsional rigidity and flexural strength. Body flexing is minimal, even on the most poorly surfaced roads.

Increased protection is provided by an automatically deploying roll-over protection system if the car were to overturn. Two spring-loaded roll-over bars are neatly incorporated behind the rear seats. The roll-over sensor continuously monitors the car’s pitch and roll, contact with the road, as well as lateral and longitudinal forces. If the car were to overturn, the roll-over bars would be deployed instantly.
