2021 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet Review: Thunder, Lighting, And Sunshine

There are few sports cars as respected as the Porsche 911, and even more so when you add the hallowed 'Turbo' name on the rear- end, so you'd best believe that the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet is going to be a serious bit of kit. For 2021, the drop-top 911 Turbo range gains more power and a reworked eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, which channels up to 640 horsepower to all four wheels thanks to a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six engine. The 911 Turbo Cabriolet goes up against competitors such as the Audi R8 Spyder and Lamborghini Huracan Evo, and while it might not be as dramatic as those twoeither, it might just be more capable.

Engine and Transmission

The 2021 911 Turbo Cabriolet brings with it some big power figures thanks to a 3.8-liter twin-turbo 6-cylinder gas engine. The non-S 911 Cabriolet delivers 572 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, which gets the vehicle to 60 mph in only 2.8 seconds when fitted with the Sport Chrono package. Power is sent to the all-wheel drivetrain via an 8-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission. The Turbo S packs a massive 640 hp and 590 lb-ft, which is a power increase of 60 hp and 37 lb-ft of torque over the 911.2 Turbo S. With the Sport Chrono package installed, this German supercar can launch to sixty in only 2.6 seconds and top out at 205 mph. Neither option is particularly fuel efficient, returning best estimates of 15/20/17 mpg.

Verdict: 🏁Is the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet a good convertible?

The Porsche 911 is a true thoroughbred in the world of high-performance cars and has only improved with age. So much so, in fact, that many manufacturers benchmark their offerings against the 911 before public release. That kind of pressure can weigh on a manufacturer, but Porsche takes it in its stride and seems to keep on delivering a superior product year after year. The 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo convertible might not be the ultimate Porsche weapon (lose your roof, lose your seat), but it still delivers devastating performance, all bundled in a timeless package that's both comfortable, refined, and somewhat practical. Competitors such as the Audi R8 V10 Spyder will feel more dramatic, but none can match the 2-door Porsche for its ability to make even the most mediocre drivers feel like heroes. No US-based safety organization has put the 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet to review, and we do wish there was some more standard tech, but at the end of the day, you're going to struggle to do better.

🚗What Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet Model Should I Buy?

Seeing as the Turbo S only offers marginal performance increases but comes with a significant price increase, we'd recommend sticking with the regular Turbo model and adding a few choice options. We'd go for one in Jet Black Metallic and get the optional Turbo S exclusive design wheels in Satin Aurum if we were buying. In terms of performance upgrades, we'd add the $1,510 PASM Sport Suspension kit, the $3,170 Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control system, and the $3,490 Sport exhaust system. Adaptive cruise control is another nice touch at $2,000. The price of a 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet in this configuration comes to $202,970, including a destination fee of $1,350 and the $1,000 gas-guzzler tax.
