Six weeks after the launch of the new Porsche 911 Coupé, today sees Porsche announce the new 911 Cabriolet models. The new Cabriolet models echo the timeless and contemporary design of the Coupé, remaining unmistakably a Porsche 911 in Cabriolet form.
Both models, 911 Carrera S Cabriolet and 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet, rely on a six-cylinder boxer engine with 450 PS at 6,500 rpm and 530 Nm torque between 2,300 and 5,000 rpm. The drive efficiency has increased and emissions reduced by way of the improved injection process; other optimisation measures have also been implemented, such as a new layout for the turbochargers and charge air cooling system. The power is delivered by a newly developed eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. The Carrera S accelerates from zero to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds and can reach speeds up to 190 mph.*
The fully automatic fabric roof features an integrated glass rear screen, as well as an electric wind deflector, making it well-equipped – whatever the weather. A new hydraulic system means, the roof opens and closes even quicker and smoother. The new hydraulics also deliver an additional weight optimisation.
For the first time, the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) sports chassis is also available for the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet models, with the suspension lowered by ten millimetres. The springs are harder and shorter; the anti-roll bars at the front and rear axles are even stiffer. Therefore, the vehicle maintains a more neutral level of contact with the road, creating a more balanced feel – yet without limiting the car’s suitability for everyday use essentially.
The new 911 Cabriolet models are available for order today. You can discover more here or contact our Centre for more information.
911 Carrera S Cabriolet official fuel consumption (WLTP): combined 10.7-10.1 l/100km (26.4-28.0 mpg). CO2 emissions (NEDC equivalent): 208 g/km
911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet official fuel consumption (WLTP): combined 11.3-10.6 l/100km (25.0-26.6 mpg). CO2 emissions (NEDC equivalent): 207 g/km
*Where it is safe and legal to do so i.e. a track or test facility.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
