2020 Porsche 911 Cabriolet Drops Camo, Wears “Envy Green” Paint

Now that the all-new 2020 Porsche 911 coupe is out in the open, the automaker can focus on the more “open” member of the 992 family.

Yes, we’re talking about the 911 Cabriolet, seen here testing in two different configurations. We’re willing to bet you hardly noticed the black prototype as the electric green one catches all the attention.

We don’t know the official name of this new paintwork (how about “Envy Green”?) but it’s definitely one to consider for those customers who want their 2020 Porsche 911 Cabriolet to stand out from the crowd. The flashy green bodywork is combined with a black soft top that fits flush with the car’s prominent rear end, giving the Cabriolet a similar roofline with the coupe when the roof is up.

Essentially the same car as the 911 coupe, only cooler

The black 911 Cabriolet prototype with the red canvas roof and the white one with the black soft top are definitely for customers who value understatement more but not enough to roll in an all-black car. Elsewhere, the convertible looks just like its fixed-roof sibling, including in the wheel department. All prototypes feature staggered wheels, with the rear rims being larger and wider than those at the front. This feature is more obvious on the green prototype that features two different alloy wheel designs on each axle.

Judging by the look of the bumpers, all three prototypes are Carrera S or 4S models, which means they pack a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six engine producing 450 PS (444 hp). The entry-level Carrera uses a detuned version of the same engine that makes 385 PS (380 hp).

Expect the 911 Cabriolet Carrera S to be slightly slower from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) than the corresponding coupe model, which stops the clock at 3.7 seconds (3.6 seconds for the Carrera 4S). The optional Sport Chrono Package should shave a further 0.2 seconds off the acceleration time.

The top speed should be marginally lower as well. The 911 Carrera S coupe reaches 308 km/h (191 mph) while the 911 Carrera 4S coupe hits 306 km/h (190 mph).

    Could any of you live with a car that colour? I don’t think I could. I don’t think I’d want to.

    • ksegg

      I couldn’t. That color needs to just……go away. Forever.

    • Like my Grand-pa said to his wife when he came home with a Yellowish beige Volvo car home…. “What do you care? When you’re in it you don’t see it”.

  • Bash

    Not that color. That’s a wrong choice Porsche!

  • The green one really looks like a sad beetle from the front.

    I love green but that’s just terrible.

    What about exhaust system on white one? Does that mean much power engine? GTS version?

  • Fabián Montiel

    “Essentially the same car as the 911 coupe, only cooler” You’re joking, right? By the way I love lizard green but only in the GT3 RS, where it’s okay to have a flashy color, not on a standard Carrera.
