In its inimitable fashion, Porsche blasts open-air sports car driving to the next level with the introduction of the 2008 911 Turbo Cabriolet. This third generation, or 997, Turbo Cabriolet is Porsche’s most powerful, nimble and environmentally friendly convertible to date. Embodying the soul of Porsche, this latest open-top Turbo bristles with the carmaker’s most sophisticated technologies, delivering a level of road-going performance commensurate with its status as the pinnacle of the Cabriolet model range.
Like the two generations before it, the latest 911 Turbo Cabriolet shares its essential architecture with the latest Turbo Coupe, most critically, that car’s 3.6-liter horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine with twin variable-vane turborchargers and its all-wheel drive.
Driving through either a standard-equipment six-speed manual or optional five-speed Tiptronic S transmission, the engine’s output is maximized at all four tires by an electronically controlled allwheel drive system, Porsche Traction Management (PTM), marking the first application of this technology on any Porsche Cabriolet.
In factory tests, the new convertible with the manual transmission the Turbo Cabriolet accelerated to 60 mph (96 kph) in a mere 3.8 seconds, 124 (200 kph) in 12.8 seconds with a top track speed of 193 mph (310 kph).
