911 TURBO CABRIOLET AUSTRALIA
Like the 911 Turbo Coupe, power output for the 911 Turbo S Cabriolet is 22kW healthier than the old model, with the 3.8 litre six-cylinder turbocharged engine now churning out 412kW.
The 'regular' 911 Turbo Cabriolet isn’t far behind, offering 383kW. Acceleration from 0-100km/h takes just 3.2 seconds in the Turbo S and 3.5 seconds in the Turbo, with a 318km/h top-speed for both models.
Fuel economy for both Cabriolet models is listed at 9.9 l/100km, marking a 15 percent improvement over the out-going models and putting them just 0.2 l/100km behind their Coupe sisters.
As for the roof, Porsche claim the new Cabriolet models are “wonderfully open” - but close the roof, and you're blessed with the same Coupe profile.
The roof opens and closes in around 13 seconds, and this can be achieved at speeds up to 50km/h.
Leather and carbon-fibre abound in the interior, with the Turbo S boasting adaptive sports seats with 18-way adjustment and a Bose sound system.
Two-tone black and Carrera Red interior trim is a no-cost option, and a Burmester sound system is available on request.
The order book is now open for Porsche’s 911 Turbo Cabriolet models in Australia, priced from $388,800 for the 911 Turbo and $463,100 for the 911 Turbo S, plus on-roads.
Porsche expects customer deliveries to commence in late April 2014.
The 2013 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S Cabriolet will be officially revealed at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
