Porsche 911 Turbo Convertible pricing announced
Porsche announced today the European pricing for the 2008 911 Turbo Convertible, and the pricing went beyond any imagination. After yesterday when Porsche has announced new prices for all the sports car (the prices for 911 Turbo went to 140.152 euro), today Porsche priced the 911 Turbo Convertible at 210.950 euro! Its Italian competitors, the Lamborghini Gallardo Spider are priced at 243.658 euro and the Ferrari F430 Spider at 232.273 euro.
As with the 911 Turbo Coupé, the Cabriolet will also be powered by a 3.6 liter six-cylinder ‘boxer’ engine with biturbo turbocharging and Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG). The powerplant already generates 480 hp (353 kW) and 620 Nm of torque at 1950 rpm. With the new, optional “Sport Chrono Turbo Package”, which includes an overboost function, up to 680 Nm is even intermittently possible.
The manual transmission version can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just four seconds. With Tiptronic S the time can be cut to 3.8 seconds. Both versions can reach speeds of up to 310 km/h. Fuel consumption for the 911 Turbo Cabriolet is 12.9 liters per 100 kilometers – an exemplary value in the competitive environment.
