With up to 560 horsepower pushing it from the back, the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo is the kind of sports car you’re just dying to take for a spin around the Nurburgring. Opt for the Convertible , and you’re off to a great summer to say the least.
Although the latter is available in about 14 exterior colors, including the special GT Silver Metallic and Lime Gold Metallic hues that will relieve buyers of $3,140, we know for a fact that some customers are a bit more pretentious and need more than that. They need exclusivity, they’re after a 911 that’s like no other.
Our best advice to them is that they take it to Porsche Exclusive, Stuttgart’s in-house customizing team (similar to Rolls-Royce ’s Bespoke and BMW ’s Individual brands). Responsible for creating the stunning Lime Gold 911 Turbo a couple of months ago, Porsche Exclusive just rolled out another unique sports car , this time adding some bells and whistles to the Turbo Convertible.
As with most Porsche Exclusive models, no power-enhancing updates were operated under the hood, where the 3.8-liter, twin-turbo flat-six is just as it left the factory. No need to be disappointed though, this convertible has what it needs to stand out in a 911 crowd.

The full leather is rounded off by numerous aluminum inserts, while the center console is framed in a carbon-fiber surround.
Unveiled about half a year ago, the 2014 911 Turbo Convertible showed up few exterior updates (quelle surprise, eh?), but with a hefty power bump and plenty of new technologies and a new, slightly longer chassis.
The upgraded 3.8-liter, flat-six unit now delivers 520 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 524 pound-feet of torque at 2,100 rpm through a seven-speed PDK transmission. The 0 to 60 mph spring takes only 3.3 seconds and the top speed is achieved at 195 miles per hour.
These figures are updated to 3.1 seconds and 197 mph respectively once the more powerful (560 hp) Turbo S model is selected.
