When the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupé was released a few months ago, we didn’t think the favored fifty year old design could get any better. Then, we saw it topless. It’s not the first of the 911 Turbo Cabriolets, but it’s the newest and greatest. Boasting all of the things we looked forward to playing with in the Coupé, from the power to the active aerodynamic features and sport packed luxury, the cabriolet only adds excitement with the drop of its top with the push of a button.
Available in your choice of the 911 Turbo S model, you’ll get the turbocharged 3.8-Liter six cylinder engine with either 520 bhp for the 911 Turbo or 560 bhp in the S model. No matter your choice, you’ll receive extraordinary open top fun, taking you up to 197 mph and from 0-60 in either 3.5 seconds or 3.2 seconds, depending on the model of choice.
Surprisingly, the Turbo Cabriolet holds better aerodynamic ratios than its coupé brother. And with a lightweight magnesium framed top, you’ll feel just as safe. The top holds an “arch” that is designed to look as similar to the Coupé’s top as possible, and can be lowered at speeds up to 31 mph in just thirteen seconds with the push of a button.
Both the Coupé and Cabriolet models boast the newest and proudest innovative engineering found in Porsche and give way to good reason for all of the awards the German company has already won in 2013. This year, the 911 known for its dominating performance and aerodynamic capabilities will perform significantly better than the line-up we saw just 12 months ago.
The newest of the lineups are 15 percent more efficient, produce 30 bhp more than last year and are capable of going from 0-60 in 0.2 seconds less time. Is another reason needed to convince Porsche enthusiasts to either add another 911 Turbo/ Turbo S to their collection or get to their dealer to trade in their old one.
These new top-of-the-range 911 Cabriolet models will be available for purchase in early 2014. The 911 Turbo Cabriolet will start at $160,700, while the 911 Turbo S Cabriolet will have a $193,900 price tag.
