September in Frankfurt Motor Show, the all-new 911 Coupe already introducing. Today, the first details and photos of the 2012 Porsche 911 Cabriolet and 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet officially released.
With the design innovative in folding roof, it’s offering a sharper look, improved aerodynamics and increased refinement. As expected, Porsche opted for a soft top instead of the folding hard top, this hood uses a fabric skinned composite panel, which provides a nicer shape and a better fit. Porsche also says that this new roof, which takes just 11 seconds to raise or stow, is more resistant to high speed buffeting. There’s also an automatic wind deflector.
Zuffenhausen says that with the longer wheelbase (stretched by 100 mm to
2,450 mm), the wider front track and the new electro-mechanical power
steering, the new Cabriolets offer sportier driving characteristics,
greater precision and agility.
The open top version has the same engines as the Coupe variant.
