2020 Porsche 911 Cabriolet 443 HP Unlimited Headroom Review, Specs, & Engine – Porsche released the next-generation of its venerable 911 sports car in November at the Los Angeles International Auto Show, showing the hardtop version of the Carrera S and all-wheel-drive Carrera 4S. Now – and as indicated by countless spy photos – it is lopped the roof off to create the newest version of the 911 Cabriolet.
2020 Porsche 911 Cabriolet 443 HP Unlimited Headroom Review
Approaching out first in Carrera S and Carrera 4S, the 992 911 Cabriolet boasts the exact same 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged flat-six, 443 horsepower, and 390 pound-feet of torque as the hardtop models shown in L.A. There’s also a new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission that is all set for hybridization, a committed Drenched Mode for much more confident-footed performance in inclement weather, and the wide hips that earlier belonged to the all-wheel-drive models are now standard across the range. Active safety techniques and a night-vision system are also available. In simple terms, the Cabriolet features identical enhancements and new technological innovation as the hardtop. Shocking, we realize.
Whereby the 911 Cabriolet is different is, of course, with its material roof. Porsche is encouraging easier, faster operation compared to the 991 – drivers are able to raise and reduced the roof in just 12 seconds, and like last year’s car, at speeds up to 31 miles per hour. As for the look, the soft top has a common disruptive impact on the 911’s account. This is not the prettiest 911 about, but limitless headroom is occasionally worth the aesthetic forfeit. Talking of miles per hour, the Cabriolet is just a smidge slower than the 911 hardtop. The slowest variant – the non-Sport Chrono-equipped Carrera S – will take 3.7 seconds to hit 60. The all-wheel-drive variant drops that shape by a 10th of a second, whilst incorporating the Sports Chrono Package to both variants slashes the time it will take to hit 60 by .2 seconds, just like the 911 Coupe. Whilst the rear-drive model is slower to 60, they have a higher top speed, hitting 190 mph to the Carrera 4S Cabriolet’s 188.
Release Date & Price
Prices for the 911 Cabriolet start at $126,100 for the Carrera S and $133,400 for the Carrera 4S. That is a $12,900 and $12,800 difference between the coupe variations, correspondingly. Orders are currently open, with shipping and delivery planned for the later summer season of 2019.
