After unveiling its new, eighth generation 911 in fall 2018, Porsche has now lifted the lid on the cabriolet version, featuring a turbocharged 450-horsepower engine.
It s no surprise to see that this model has the same general look as the coup, but with a soft-top hood featuring an integrated glass rear window. The hood can be deployed or retracted while driving at speeds of up to 50km/h, with a 12-second opening time.
Currently, the new 911 Cabriolet is proposed in Carrera S and Carrera 4S versions. Both have top speeds of over 300km/h and manage 0-100km/h in under four seconds (3.6 seconds for the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet with the optional Sport Chrono Package).
Like the coup, this Porsche 911 Cabriolet comes as standard with a collision warning and brake assist system, as well as a Wet Mode, which detects water on the road, preconditions the control systems accordingly and alerts the driver.
