Porsche 911 Cabriolet – starts at US$ 108,000

911 and Turbo. To all intents and purposes an unsurpassable combination. So how do we take things to the next level? By bringing the wind into the equation. But only in the Porsche way: with meticulous design, precision engineering and dynamism. For the ultimate open-top driving experience. It all starts with the performance capabilities of the 3.8-litre, twin-turbo engines. Power and torque ratings are identical to those of the Coupé versions.

This is the 8 Series Convertible: the driveable feeling of freedom. The 8 Series Convertible’s most attractive feature is its compact soft top. When closed, it creates a striking notchback silhouette – and it retracts in 15 seconds, even while driving at speeds up to 30 mph.
