2013 Porsche 911 Cabriolet by Caractere Exclusive

Caractere Exclusive has just finished work on the recently revised Porsche Panamera , but that didn’t stop it from jumping into a new project. This time, it turned its attention to the Porsche 911 Cabriolet.

Known for building some impressive programs for Porsche vehicles, Caractere Exclusive has another one to offer its loyal customer base. While it doesn’t have the same comprehensive list of goodies that we’ve come to expect from the company, it still makes the 911 Cabriolet look all sorts of wicked.

What’s of particular note about this program is that the kit it comes with was built entirely from polyurethane (PU) that was done through the reaction injection molding (RIM) process. A host of components have been built using this material, including a redesigned front bumper with built-in air intakes. New side skirts are also part of the program, all of which come with integrated air intakes and outlets.

Around back, there’s a new rear wing that has its own brake light, as well as engine vents, and a new trunk lid. Rounding out the program is a new rear spoiler and a set of 20- or 21-inch, three-piece modular matte GRAPHITE CW2 forged alloy wheels.

The side stance of the 911 Cabriolet is the kind that few tuners can accomplish. That includes Caractere Exclusive.

Like with the coupe version, the 911 Cabriolet comes with an extensively updated exterior featuring an even more muscular stance, a new headlamp design, remodeled exterior mirrors and new wheels. The interior will be more driver-focused and will offer better technology.

As for the engine lineup, the standard Carrera gets a 3.4-liter, direct-injected, flat-six engine that delivers a total of 350 horsepower, while the S version features a 3.8-liter, flat-six with direct injection delivering a raised output of 400 horsepower.

Performance times would obviously suffer just a tad with the added weight of the soft top, but isn’t too far off, with the Cabriolet’s 0-to-60 mph time of 4.8 seconds and the Cabriolet S’s 4.5-second sprint.
