Character 911 Carrera S Cabriolet

Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet - Character

Character

Open-top driving is integral to Porsche history. It began back in 1948 with the No. 1. The convertible variant of the first 356 became a legend, as did its descendent, the Porsche 550 Spyder. In 1982, the first 911 Carrera model in cabriolet form was introduced to the road.

Two things that all open-top Porsche cars have in common are an urge for sporty acceleration and unlimited driving pleasure. The time has come to carry this tradition on into the future. The 911 Carrera S Cabriolet does just that.

That explains what motivates us; so let’s describe what drives the car: the 3.8-litre engine with direct fuel injection (DFI) and VarioCam Plus, which produces 294 kW (400 hp) at 7,400 rpm. The 911 Carrera S Cabriolet completes the sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 4.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 187 mph.

These are impressive performance figures, founded on the principle that, if you want to keep moving, you shouldn’t carry unnecessary weight. This is precisely why the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet incorporates the extensive use of lightweight materials.

The fabric hood plays a crucial role in this respect. Integrated, supporting magnesium elements make the hood light yet extremely robust. The hood opens and closes in just 13 seconds and is operable up to a speed of 31 mph. With the hood closed, the car’s profile is optimised for aerodynamic performance, which explains the low drag coefficient of 0.30. Wind noise is practically eliminated.

The integrated wind deflector manipulates headwind to create ideal conditions. Electrically powered and installed directly behind the passenger cell, it provides effective protection against air turbulence.

Twin tailpipes in stainless steel also make a clear statement. The 20-inch Carrera S wheels afford an unobstructed glimpse of the brake calipers with a red painted finish. As you would expect, the 911 Cabriolet offers a high level of occupant safety and features an effective roll-over protection concept as well as full-size airbags for the driver and front passenger.

Without question, the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet has remained faithful to the sporty spirit of its predecessors and is ensuring that the legacy lives on in the 21st century.
