If life is a journey, wouldn’t it be a tragedy not to enjoy it to the full? Perhaps it’s this – admittedly somewhat philosophical – outlook that best explains the desire for an open-top 911 Turbo.
It’s all about that intense experience of driving with the hood down. Coupled with the impressive way in which the 3.8-litre boxer engines unleash their power. Their performance figures are identical to those of the Coupés. Whether you choose 368 kW (500 hp) or 390 kW (530 hp) will depend on how much value you place on engine power. Both models have a drag coefficient of 0.32 when the hood is closed.
When fitted with the manual gearbox, the 911 Turbo Cabriolet sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds. With PDK and the Sport Chrono Package Turbo with dynamic engine mount system (standard on the 911 Turbo S Cabriolet), it takes even less time, just 3.5 seconds. Top speed is 312 km/h (194 mph). The 911 Turbo S Cabriolet, equipped with PDK as standard, demolishes the 100 km/h (62 mph) barrier in 3.4 seconds and has a top speed of 315 km/h (196 mph).
Besides the equipment that you would normally expect to find on a convertible car, the 911 Turbo Cabriolet and 911 Turbo S Cabriolet have the same standard specification as their Coupé counterparts.
To prevent body flexing as much as possible, the body is designed for high torsional and flexural strength. As a result you get the same precise, direct driving experience as you do in the Coupé models. Despite the slightly heavier weight, fuel consumption is comparable with that of the Coupés.
The dynamic engine mount system of the Sport Chrono Package Turbo (standard on the 911 Turbo S Cabriolet, optional on the 911 Turbo Cabriolet) reduces oscillations and vibrations and further improves ride comfort.
Where safety is concerned too, the Cabriolet models meet the most stringent requirements. These, too, have full-size airbags for driver and passenger as well as Porsche Side Impact Protection (POSIP). The safety package is supplemented by the effective roll-over system and reinforced A-pillars.
