Stuttgart. Curtains up for the new 911 Turbo Convertible: From September 8, 2007, even before the official world premiere at the International Motor Show, 85 German Porsche Centers will be exhibiting the 911 Series’ open-top model in their showrooms. ”Although the German market as a whole is in the red in terms of registrations, Porsche has managed to increase its share by 2.1 percent in the current calendar year. The many advance orders before the market launch demonstrate that this new convertible will give our business another extra boost“, says Bernhard Maier, Managing Director of Porsche Deutschland GmbH.
The 911 Turbo Convertible will be powered by a 3.6-liter, six-cylinder boxer engine with biturbo supercharging and variable turbine geometry (VTG). The engine yields 480bhp (353kW) and 620Nm of torque as of 1,950 revolutions per minute. The manual version accelerates to
100 kilometers per hour in four seconds, while the Tiptronic S is even faster with 3.8 seconds. Both versions can reach 310 kilometers per hour and fuel consumption is an extremely competitive 12.9 liters over 100 kilometers.
In Germany, the 911 Turbo Convertible costs 150,862 Euros (including VAT).
