The New 2020 Porsche 911 Cabriolet Can Go Topless in Just 12 Seconds
The 992 goes full sky modeby Jonathan Lopez, on
Following the debut of the 2020 Porsche 911 at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, Stuttgart is dropping the top with the new 2020 911 Cabriolet, and it’s bringing all the good stuff as the hardtop, plus a few unique features to help you better enjoy the extra headroom.
The Latest Roofless 911 Is Here
True to form, the 911 Cabriolet looks pretty similar to the new 992 hardtop, albeit with no roof.
This time around, Porsche says the 992 Cabriolet offers new hydraulics to more quickly open and close the roof. It’s a fully automatic soft top feature that can open and close at speeds up to 50 km/h (31 mph), and it includes an integrated glass rear window. There are also magnesium components in the top’s structure to help it from blowing away at speed. An electrically extendable wind deflector helps to protect the necks of passengers from the cold air.
Outside, the 911 Cabriolet offers a variable position rear spoiler. The body is all-aluminum, while the rollers measure in at 20-inches in front and 21 inches in the rear.
In terms of the oily bits, Porsche is offering the Carrera S model with RWD and the Carrera 4S with AWD. Both come equipped with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder powerplant, which doles out 443 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque. Routing the muscle is a new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Properly motivated, the Carrera S model can reach 62 mph in 3.9 seconds.
Go for the optional Sport Chrono Package, and that figure drops to 3.7 seconds. Top speed is rated at 306 km/h (190 mph).
To help it handle, the roofless wonder sports a new engine mounting position for a more rigid rear end. Porsche is also offering its Active Suspension Management system for the first time for the Cabriolet model heading into the 2020 model year. The chassis is lowered as well, while a standard wet mode will automatically adjust the 911’s various systems to compensate for the lower traction.
Inside, the cabin is more or less unchanged compared to the coupe, and comes with a 10.9-inch touchscreen in the dash.
Pricing starts at $126,100 for the Carrera S Cabriolet, and $133,400 for the 4S. You can order yours now, and models are slated to arrive at dealers this summer.
