2020 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet Coming To Mess With Your Hair

Porsche was spotted testing the flagship Turbo version of the new 992 Cabriolet under cold-weather conditions.

Just like the fixed-roof 911 Turbos we keep seeing lately, the camouflage on the specific test car is limited to the front and rear fascias, as well as the rear fenders. With the base 911 Cabriolet already shown, it’s only natural for Porsche to start peeling away the disguise of its pre-production 911 Turbo models.

The new Porsche 911 Turbo is going to use an updated version of the existing twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six engine. Power outputs will start from around 600hp for the standard model while Turbo S versions are expected to feature an 30hp. Both models will feature Porsche’s new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission sending power to all four wheels.

On the outside, the new 911 Turbo will get its own, model-specific design traits, including a new bumper with bigger air inlets upfront, deeper side sills and a beefier rear bumper complete with the signature cutouts on its lower edges, right next to the quad exhaust pipes. A bigger rear wing and a set of lightweight centerlock wheels complete the differences over the standard Carrera models.

It’ll be interesting to see how much can Porsche improve the already wowing straight-line performance of the outgoing 911 Turbo S, which offers a 0-62mph (100km/h) in under 3 seconds. A plug-in 911 Turbo S E-Hybrid is also coming to serve as the new top-dog of the range but it remains to be seen if Porsche will offer it as a Cabriolet.

Porsche’s new hydraulically-operated soft top can be opened or closed in about 12 seconds and up to speeds of 31mph (50km/h).

Expect to see the Stuttgart carmaker revealing the new 911 Turbo later this year, possibly at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, with sales to begin towards the end of the year.
