The new Porsche 911 is a refinement of a well defined breed of sports car; the world’s most successful no less. Offering more comfort and even sharper responsiveness, the German flat-six will spawn a seemingly endless number of variations. Next up is the Cabriolet and whilst Porsche took a tin opener to their new toy, they added a few innovations at the same time.
So, here it is. The 2012 Porsche 911 Cabriolet. Set to make its debut in Detroit during January, the car features a new patented roof that uses a fabric-composite making it lighter and more resistant to the high speed tortures of the 911. It takes just 11 seconds to transform the Cabriolet into alfresco motoring perfection and the process can be completed on the move providing the car is travelling at under 37MPH.
Prices for the Carrera start at £79,947 and £89,740 for the Carrera S. Expect to see these machines flaunting themselves come March.
