Spy Shots: 2013 Porsche 911 Turbo Takes Its Top Off!

After Porsche took the future 911 Turbo out for a little test session, they then proceeded to do the same with the Cabrio. Lucky for us, the spy photographers were at the right place at the right time to catch the prototype during its hot weather testing. Considering the bright sunshine, there was only one way to test the Cabrio; with the top down.

Besides the exchange of hard top for soft top, the Porsche 911 Turbo Cabrio will have the same features as the Coupe. Expect to see the same 3.8-liter flat-six engine with an output of about 550 HP combined with the Porsche-Doppelkupplung (PDK) gearbox, brake regeneration, and stop start systems to help reduce fuel consumption by about 12%.

The new Porsche Turbo will make its world debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, after the new 911 makes its very own world debut in September 2011 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Sales will begin later on in the year.

The system they provide on this car will surely help the fuel consumption. I think they’ve done it because the performance of the car is really impressive thus consuming a big bucket of gas. Nice idea for Porsche.

Aside from the awesome styling and design, I would say that I’m impressed with its performance as well. I can’t wait to see this car makes debut in the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

I have seen the Turbo S running down in the street. The styling of the car look so aggressive and sporty. It makes me wonder if it would be as impressive as this version?
