Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet spy shots

Filed under:

The Porsche 911 wouldn’t be the Porsche 911 unless there were twenty-something different models to choose from (note: we are not complaining), and the latest one was just spied by our trusty photographers out on Germany’s Nürburgring. Feast your eyes on the 911 Turbo Cabriolet – the droptop version of the new Turbo wonder that debuted in May – looking all sorts of stealth in its black-on-black-on-black prototype scheme.

Mechanically, the 911 Turbo Cab should be identical to the fixed-roof version, meaning a twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six engine will live in the car’s rump, putting out something like 520 horsepower. Of course, there’s also the hotter Turbo S version of the coupe, and we expect that to get the droptop treatment, as well, with 560 horsepower on tap. The added weight of the folding top and additional structural supports will likely make for slightly slower 0-60 times for both cars, though considering the base Turbo will hit 60 miles per hour in 3.2 seconds, “slower” is a very relative term indeed. All that force will run to the ground via all-wheel drive, managed by Porsche’s seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission.

The wide stance of the 911 Turbo Coupe carries over to the Cabriolet, no doubt fitted with the same (standard) 20-inch wheels. Inside, the usual luxury amenities will be on hand, along with nearly endless customization options.

Given that the Frankfurt Motor Show isn’t too far off in the future, we expect to see the Turbo Cabriolet officially bow before then. For now, check it out in the high-res spy shot gallery above.

There is a saying that if you have to ask how much a luxury vehicle costs, then you simply cannot afford it. This was a question that we had when we posted details of the new Porsche 918 Spyder. We were not saying that we could afford it, curiosity was just getting the best of us. Now, Porsche has released the official pricing on the new 918 Spyder at a lofty $845,000. But that’s not all – There is more! You can have this gem of German engineering at its best for an additional $84,000 tacked onto the $845,000 base price for an exclusive Weissach trim package. The package is said to reduce the curb weight by 80 pounds through deleting some interior amenities and adding light-weight carbon fiber pieces.
