Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S Cabriolet unveiled
50 years after the 911 made its debut, and coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the 911 Turbo, the open-top versions of the 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S are making their global debut at the Los Angeles International Auto Show on November 20, 2013. Today, Porsche has unveiled them online.
The twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine delivers 520 hp in the open-top 911 Turbo and 560 hp in the S model. The cars accelerate from zero to 60mph in 3.3 and 3.1 seconds respectively, reaching a top speed of up to 195 mph.
When compared against the respective predecessor models, the new 911 Turbo Cabrioletís deliver 30 more horsepower and are 0.2 seconds faster in terms of their standard acceleration.
The 911 Turbo Cabriolet and 911 Turbo S Cabriolet U.S. EPA fuel consumption ratings are 17.0 mpg city and 24.0 mpg highway.
Another eye-catching feature of the 911 Turbo Cabriolet is the exclusive Porsche retractable roof with its lightweight magnesium frame.
This innovative technology enables the Coupe-like arch to the roof to be preserved when the top is closed. This arch, which offers advantages in terms of aerodynamics, is not feasible using conventional construction techniques.
As with predecessor models, the roof opens and closes in around 13 seconds, at speeds of up to 30 mph.
