The German premium brand has finally revealed its 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet model. While the front bumper with a wide smile on it makes the car look deliberately harmless, don’t be mistaken! This is going to be one of the most dangerous beasts to prowl highways and autobahns around the world!
Equipped with a powerful flat-six engine and the Tiptronic S gearbox, the cabrio takes only 3.8 seconds to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h and features a top speed of 310 km/h. And it is expensive almost as it is fast.
The Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet will be delivered with the same 3.6-liter engine we all know by the famous Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe.
Sporting bi-turbocharging and VTG, the engine produces up to 480 hp and 620 Nm of torque, which may be temporarily increased to more impressive 680 Nm with the help of optional “Sport Chrono Turbo Package”.
With all this power, the vehicle is not of a thirsty kind, drinking only some 12.9 liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers, which is about 18.2 mpg.
To make the monster-car a little bit safer, Porsche has equipped it with its Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Porsche Stability Management (PSM) and Porsche Traction Management systems, as well as with six airbags, chassis reinforcements, and expandable rollover protection behind the rear seats.
There are also six-cylinder fixed-brake calipers outsourced from the Porsche Carrera GT, which may be replaced with an optional Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) ceramic brake system.
And, yeah, starting at considerable €126,600, it is pretty expensive, too.
