2020 Porsche 911 Cabriolet Can Hit 190 MPH And Drop Its Top In 12 Seconds

Porsche has unveiled the all-new 911 Cabriolet less than two months after the coupe debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Looking instantly recognizable, the 911 Cabriolet features an automatic soft top with a lightweight structure that has magnesium bows to prevent “ballooning of the roof at high speed.” The roof also features an integrated glass rear window.

Speaking of the roof, it can be opened and closed faster than its predecessor thanks to new hydraulics. The process now takes approximately 12 seconds and the top can be opened or closed at speeds up to 31 mph (50 km/h). When the roof is down, a wind deflector rises to ensure drivers remain comfortable.

At launch, the 911 Cabriolet will be offered exclusively in Carrera S and Carrera 4S guise. Both feature a twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six engine that develops 443 hp (331 kW / 450 PS) and 391 lb-ft (530 Nm) of torque. The engine is connected to a new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission which enables the Carrera S convertible to rocket from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in as little as 3.7 seconds, before hitting top speed of 190 mph (306 km/h). The addition of all-wheel drive drops the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) time to as little as 3.6 seconds, but the top speed also falls to 188 mph (304 km/h).

Speaking of performance, the 911 Cabriolet promises to be a better driver’s car as the model has more torsional rigidity than its predecessor and can now be equipped with the Porsche Active Suspension Management system for the first time. When that option is selected, the car has stiffer anti-roll-bars and a ride height that has been lowered by 0.4 inches (10 mm). Porsche says the changes give the model a “more neutral feel on the road” as well as better weight distribution.

Styling largely carries over from the coupe so it’s not too surprising that the model has evolutionary styling, a rear light bar and a larger rear spoiler. The Cabriolet also features stylish wheels that measure 20-inches front and 21-inches out back.

The familiar styling continues in the cabin as drivers will find a mixed digital and analog instrument cluster as well as a 10.9-inch infotainment system. The only difference between the coupe and convertible appears to be dedicated controls to open or close the roof.

The 2020 Porsche 911 Cabriolet will be launched later this year and the company is currently accepting pre-orders. In the United States, pricing starts at $126,100 for the Carrera S Cabriolet and $133,400 for the 4S variant (excluding a $1,250 delivery, processing and handling fee). Customers who don’t finch at the price hike of more than $9,000 can expect deliveries to begin late this summer.

  • Ruel Lewis

    Still don’t like the execution vertical of those vertical brake lights and I think there are too many vutlines at the rear. There’s one for the wing, one for the bumper and one for the roof compartment. If they reduce the number of elements at the rear it will look so much better. Big Porsche fan btw.
