Spied: Porsche 911 Cabriolet

The Porsche 911 Carrera is a car that can never die. The soul of the classic sports car from the German automaker has been on the road since the days of the original Volkswagen. The iconic shape of the backwards engineered performance car with a pair of round headlamps staring at you brilliantly, a sloping roofline that makes room for a powerful boxer engine and hips that stick out far enough to cover the wide rear rubber that it takes to make the sports car work. After a brief departure from the norm with the 996’s interesting headlights, Porsche ’s latest model took the car closer back to its original shape and it looks like things will be staying that way into 2011.

Thanks to our friends at World Car Fans, we can see that Porsche’s next drop top sports car will receive a slight restyling from today’s model. It looks like the driving lights have been tweaked and the front end is flatter thanks to a larger chin spoiler while they do keep with the circular headlamp theme. The roofline doesn’t appear to be as high as the current car, perhaps part of the automaker’s plan for a more streamlined 911. Meanwhile the cutouts in the rear fenders hint at a pair of turbochargers hiding underneath all that sheet metal. If this is the case then the next iteration of Porsche’s high performance sports coupe should be a dream, especially with the wind in your hair.

If the ordinary Porsche 997 doesn’t sound exclusive enough for you, the German sports car maker has a new limited edition model ready to be revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show that is based on the 911s of yesterday with its Carrera RS inspired duck tail spoiler and 21st century Fusch style wheels. The very exclusive edition Carrera Classic is limited to only 250 units with sales scheduled to being in 2010, with prices starting at 169,300 euro.

Porsche 911 Sport Classic

The Porsche 911 Sport Classic is based on the rear wheel drive Carrera S and comes with a few new body pieces and a wider body in the rear to house the almost 2 inch wider track. The Carrera Classic is powered by a 3.8 Liter direct injected horizontally opposed six cylinder engine that thanks to the introduction of the new intake manifold that features six vacuum controlled flaps that increases the 911s maximum output by a total of 23 HP, bringing the Carrera Classic’s max power up to 408 HP.

Other technologies included in this special edition are: PCCB Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes, PASM sports suspension lowering the entire car by almost an inch, the mechanical rear differential housed inside of the transaxle, a custom made set of 19 inch rims and a pair of stripes that run down the middle.
