The new Porsche 911 Cabriolet remains unmistakably a Porsche 911 in Cabriolet form. The soft top can be opened or closed at speeds up to 50 km/h. New roof hydraulics reduce opening time to around twelve seconds, while an electrically extendable wind deflector ensures that necks are shielded from wind impact. The wind deflector can be opened and closed up to a speed of 120 km/h. When the top is open, it guarantees very good protection against draughts and minimum wind noise.
In the event of an imminent roll-over, two newly developed cassette modules behind the rear seats are extended by spring pressure; triggering takes place pyrotechnically by a micro gas generator. If the convertible top is closed, a carbide metal pin on each of the two cassettes extends through the safety glass of the rear window. The S model features a 331 kW (450 PS) twin-turbo engine that delivers top speeds of over 300 km/h, and acceleration of 0-100 km/h in less than four seconds. Drivers can enjoy the new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission and with the Porsche Wet mode even safer handling on wet roads. With a design that puts a modern twist on classic elements from classic 911 models.
