The New Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet goes on sale in the UK on the 3rd March 2012.
There is a choice of two engines - the £79,947 - Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet is powered by a flat-six 3.4-litre engine producing 350 hp mated to a seven-speed manual gearbox.
The £89,740 - Porsche Carrera S Cabriolet has a flat-six 3.8-litre engine developing 400 hp also coupled to a seven-speed manual transmission as standard.
The Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet is also available with a seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) double-clutch transmission as an option, delivering lower fuel consumption and shorter acceleration times.
The 911 Cabriolet shares its new, high tech aluminium-steel body with the Coupe, and the convertible extends this innovation to its all-new, unique hood. When raised, the design of the hood ensures the iconic 911 roof line is retained in its entirety. Intelligent lightweight design, including the use of magnesium in the hood frame, ensures reduced weight for increased responsiveness, lower fuel consumption and greater comfort. As is the case with the Coupe model, the new 911 Cabriolet is significantly lighter overall than its predecessor.
To protect your 911 – Porsche have fitted the Porsche Vehicle Tracking System (VTS) as standard. VTS is a sophisticated vehicle security package approved to Thatcham Category 5 standard, and customers will also be able to explore the potential of their new car by participating in a complimentary course at the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone.
