SPIED: Next 911 cabrio

Next Porsche 911 cabrio to break cover soon

Here is a glimpse at Porsche's soon-to-be released new convertible, the Turbo Cabrio.

Prior prototypes have always had some disguise panels on front and rear, but these latest shots show a prototype without any disguise at all.

The convertible will be powered by the same potent 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six as the coupe and offered with the same choice of six-speed manual or Tiptronic S automatic transmission.

The additional weight and rigidity compromises of the convertible will hamper performance a little bit. However, it will only be a fraction slower than the hardtop's 3.4-second sprint to 100 km/h.

The top speed is expected to surpass the current car's limit of 306km/h and the 997 Turbo Cabrio will be offered with a new four-wheel-drive system.
