Now that Porsche officially unveiled the new generation 911 Turbo Coupe it’s time to focus on the convertible version that is set to arrive a few months later. As no surprise, the convertible version will feature the same design language and technology features as the coupe version.
The new-generation 911 Turbo is the widest model of entire 911 lineup, as it is about 28 mm (1.10 inches) wider than the 911 Carrera 4. Additionally, it receives a new all-wheel-drive system, active rear-axle steering and adaptive aerodynamics.
Up front, the new 911 Turbo Convertible receives a new front fascia with redesigned headlamps and larger air intakes, new full-LED headlights that feature four-point daytime running lights. For the rear, you will see new taillights and a new exhaust system with four tailpipes. The convertible version will also feature a soft top that allows buyers to cruise with the top down.
Under the hood, the 911 Turbo Convertible receives a turbocharged 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine that delivers a total of 520 horsepower in the standard model and 560 horsepower in the S version.
