When raised, the design of the hood ensures the roof line is retained in its entirety. Additionally, intelligent design, including the use of magnesium in the hood frame, ensures reduced weight for increased responsiveness, lower fuel consumption and greater comfort.
Combined with lower weight, the new car shares the longer wheelbase, wider front track and the new electro-mechanical power steering of its Coupe siblings, as well as offering the same charismatic line-up of rear-mounted, flat-six engines as the Coupé equivalents.
The new model comes in two versions: the 911 Carrerra Cabriolet, with a 3.4 litre engine and costing £79,947, and the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet, with a 3.8 litre engine, and priced at £89,740.
Since the first model was introduced in 1963, the Porsche 911 Carrerra Cabriolet has become one of the world’s most iconic sports cars.
