The standard equipment in a cabriolet: the hood. Much more than the standard: the completely revised fabric hood in the 911 Turbo Cabriolet models. Three integrated supporting magnesium elements make it extremely stable – yet light and flexible.
Another benefit is that the hood is smooth and taut. The fabric is close-fitting and the design line even more elegant than in the previous generation. Purely superficial? Yes. If you disregard the low drag coefficient. In the 911 Turbo Cabriolet models it is just 0.31.
The glass rear windscreen is scratchresistant and heated. A water deflecting edge on the hood makes sure that no rainwater can drip onto you when you open the doors.
The hood is electrically operated by a button in the central console or on the vehicle key. It opens or closes in just 13 seconds – at speeds of up to 50 km/h. The hood folds in a Z-shape so the inside is always well protected.
Inside, the roof is covered with heatand noise-insulating material, resulting in uniform interior temperatures and effective wind noise suppression. What do you hear instead? That rich Porsche sound of course.
