Porsche Unveils Turbo and Turbo S Cabrios Ahead of LA Debut


Two new range-topping soft-top models are revealed ahead of their public debut in November.

Ahead of their public debut at the LA Auto Show in November, Porsche has popped the top of the Cabriolet variants of the 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S, which were revealed back in May. Porsche now has four top-of-the-line models on offer, it’s new 911 Turbo generation sitting 1.1 inches wider than the current 911 Carrera 4. That added width is particularly striking with the roof down. When up, the retractable roof with its lightweight magnesium frame preserves the roof’s aerodynamic Coupe-like shape.

Like its predecessor, the roof takes 13 seconds to open and close at speeds of up to 30 mph. Power comes from a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six, producing 520 horsepower in the Turbo and 560 hp in the Turbo S. 0-62 mph is a claimed 3.5 and 3.2 seconds respectively, with top speed in both models put at 195 mph. The new 911 Turbo and Turbo S are on sale in Europe now, while US buyers will have to wait a few months to part with $148,300 for the Turbo and $181,100 for the Turbo S. The Cabriolet models will hit the market early next year priced at $160,700 and $193,900 respectively (plus $950 destination).
