Spy Shots: Porsche 911 Convertible plays in the snow
We’ve seen a number of vehicles taken out for test drives during these dreary winter conditions, so it’s not in the least bit surprising that Porsche is taking advantage of the mounds of snow at its disposal to test their future 911 Turbo Convertible. The new 911 Droptop was caught playing around in the snow near the Arctic Circle, proving that Porsche takes its testing very seriously.
Just as with the standard models in the new generation 911, the new Turbo version will receive updates on the exterior, as well as in the engine department. Not much of the exterior will be changed, but Porsche has done just enough to make the car sportier and more aerodynamic than ever.
As for the engine, the new 911 Turbo Convertible will be powered by the same 3.8L turbocharged flat six engine, but tricked to deliver more than the current 500 HP for the standard Turbo and 530 HP for the Turbo S.
The new Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe and Convertible are said to be unveiled next month at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show, so stay tuned!
