Porsche Releases Official 2012 911 Carrera Cabriolet Specs & Photos


First official photos and initial specs of the 2012 911 Carrera convertible have been revealed.

Porsche have released photos and limited details of the new convertible edition of the 911 Carrera, due to go on sale in 2012. Sharing the new, high-tech aluminum-steel body with the Coupe, Porsche have continued their innovative streak by developing an all-new, lightweight hood. When raised the 911 roof line is instantly recognizable, and when folded away the new convertible has a refined aerodynamic stance.

Significantly lighter than its predecessor, as per the Coupe, the new 911 Cabriolet has a longer wheelbase, wider front track and new electro-mechanical power steering ensuring greater precision and agility.
