Spy Shots: Another test run for the Porsche 911 Turbo Convertible

Porsche 911 Turbo Convertible

While Porsche is trying to delay the official launch of the new generation 911 Turbo , our spy photographers have caught the convertible version testing yet again, this time wearing less camouflage than ever. Compared to the standard 911 models, the future Turbo variant will be distinguished by wider rear fenders, additional cooling vents, a new active rear spoiler, and of course, a soft-top for those nice long drives.

Under the hood, Porsche has placed the same 3.8 liter turbocharged flat six engine tricked to deliver a few more HP compared to the current model. Just like all of the other 911 models previously launched, the future Turbo model will get auto start/stop, thermal management, electrical system recuperation, and the world’s first seven-speed manual transmission (or an optional PDK). Porsche has also been working on improving fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, so expect to see a drop of up to 15%.

The new 911 Turbo, in both coupe and cabrio versions, will be launched sometime during Summer 2012, so stay tuned!


How many tests have they done? I think the launching date is approaching and they don’t want to have any troubles in their cars.

It is very promising and well-coordinated on the responses to driver’s command. A car like this has a better future of growing sales.

Convertible is great for this 911 and I like it. The fuel economy is promising.

Seems like this car is just going through a refining tests. It’s good because they will be able to see some problems if ever there are.

I don’t think that the purpose of its camouflage is to conceal its external appearance anymore. It’s already appealing by showing off its performance in an attractive convertible.

I’m glad that there’s still a room for improvement with this version.

The similarity is almost tiring. If it’s not for its convertible feature, I may have said that its look was already dull too.

Well, the camouflage is mostly useless and pointless; we all know how it would look like, materials aside.

It didn’t need a camouflage on its exterior to keep its specs anyway. The features that have been appended were ecological.
