A Quick Look at Porsche 991 Carrera Cabrio
Here’s a nice and short video from Motorvision detailing the new Porsche 991 Cabrio. The first part with amazing scenery and Coldplay playing in the background gives you a good look at the car’s roof mechanism, then it shifts to a track for some pedal to the metal action with some heavy rock music. The 911 Carrera Cab comes with a 3.4-litre flat engine generating 350 hp (257 kW), while the Carrera S gets a 3.8-litre six-cylinder engine developing 400 hp (294 kW).
Just like the coupe, you have the choice of either a seven-speed PDK or the manual version of it.
What the Coupé began with the new aluminium-steel body, the Cabriolet continues with the all-new, unique hood: As a result, the typical 911 roof line is initially retained in its entirety. Even when closed up, the Cabriolet cuts a fine figure. Intelligent lightweight design, even including the use of magnesium in the hood, ensures less weight and more sportiness, lower fuel consumption and greater comfort. With the open-top 911s as well, Porsche has managed to reverse the weight spiral and make the new Cabrio models significantly lighter than its predecessors.
