A look at the Porsche Turbo Cabriolet

Porsche has gone public with the Turbo and S Turbo 911 Cabriolet, before its first official appearance at the Los Angeles Motor Show later on in the year.

For any fan of the 911, what is crucial is the performance, and the two Cabriolets will not let anybody down if the figures are to be believed. With both having 3.8-litre six-cylinder turbocharged engines, the Turbo can get from 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds, whilst the S model clocks in at an impressive 3.2 seconds.

Apart from the impressive acceleration, Porsche have not forgotten about fuel economy and the cars are less thirsty than their predecessors, averaging out at around 28.5 mpg. The Cabriolets also come with all wheel drive fitted as standard and PDK Duel-clutch transmission.

Impressive features for sure, but the real fun of the Cabriolet kicks in when you open the roof and get the wind in your hair, and these new models can drop their tops at the flick of a switch in around 13 seconds in speeds of just over 30 mph.

Inside, comfort levels are what you would expect, with the S-model having adaptable sports seats with 18 ways to adjust for the ultimate driving position. Optional extras include radar controlled cruise control and reversing cameras.

The cabriolet and S Cabriolet have starting prices of £126,766 and £149,511 respectively, and will be on sale at the end of the year.
