Porsche 911 S Cabriolet Design film

Description

Six weeks after the Coupe's launch, attention turns to the Porsche 911 Cabriolet. The open-top 911 continues in a decades-long tradition, established when Porsche unveiled the prototype of the first 911 Cabriolet at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt in September 1981: customers and fans alike were instantly captivated. The first open-top 911 variant rolled off the production line in 1982, and it has been a constant feature in the model range ever since. The open version of the 911, which marks the start in 2019 of an unprecedented product fireworks display, has all the innovations of the coupe. One of the Cabriolet-specific advanced features is the new hydraulic system which get the roof opened and closed more quickly.The new model echoes the modern lines of the Coupe, though it remains unmistakably a Porsche 911 in Cabriolet form. The fully-automatic soft top has an integrated glass rear window, while the soft top structure contains magnesium surface elements known as bows, which reliably prevent ballooning of the roof at high speeds. The soft top can be opened or closed at speeds up to 50 km/h. New roof hydraulics reduce opening time to around twelve seconds, while an electrically extendable wind deflector ensures that necks are shielded from wind impact.The Porsche 911 Cabriolet is initially available as a Carrera S with rear-wheel drive and Carrera 4S with all-wheel drive. Both rely on a 2,981 cm³ charged six-cylinder boxer engine with 331 kW (450 PS) at 6,500 rpm and 530 Nm torque between 2,300 and 5,000 rpm. The drive efficiency has been increased and emissions reduced by way of an improved injection process; other optimisation measures have also been implemented, such as a new layout for the turbochargers and charge air cooling system. The power is delivered by a newly developed eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. The Carrera S accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds (with optional Sport Chrono Package: 3.7 seconds) and can reach speeds up to 306 km/h. The Carrera 4S attains a top speed of 304 km/h and achieves 0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds (with optional Sport Chrono Package: 3.6 seconds).

  • Porsche 911 Speedster Design in Guards Red

    The 911 Speedster already caused a sensation when it was presented as a concept vehicle. Now Porsche is putting the open-top two seater into production. The Porsche 911 Speedster combines the aspiration of a puristic, driver-oriented vehicle with motor sports technology suitable for everyday use. The 911 R (2016) and 911 GT3 served as a basis for development. A high-revving 375 kW (510 PS) four-litre naturally aspirated boxer engine delivers an emotive sound experience in the cockpit. The six-speed GT transmission is shifted manually. Visually, the new Speedster establishes a bridge to its own history - to the forebear of all Porsche sports cars, the 356 "No. 1" Roadster from 1948. The limited edition of the new 911 Speedster is also reminiscent of this vehicle. Exactly 1,948 units will be manufactured from mid-2019 at the Porsche plant in Zuffenhausen, Germany.As a concept vehicle, the 911 Speedster celebrated its world premiere in 2018 at the ceremony for the "70 Years of Porsche Sports Cars" anniversary in Zuffenhausen. Other public appearances followed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Rennsport Reunion VI in Laguna Seca, California as well as the Paris Motor Show in October. Numerous Speedster elements that characterise the concept vehicle can now be found in the same or similar design on the series production model.Taking centre stage is the aesthetically shaped convertible top compartment lid with its double-bubble streamliners - a quintessential feature of this sports car type ever since the 911 Speedster from 1988. It is the largest and most complex component to date that Porsche has used in a road model made of a single piece of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic. Two trim elements in the double bubbles make room for the roll-over protection system as need, included in the two-seater as a standard feature just like in the 911 Carrera Cabriolet.

  • Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet Design in Lizard Green

    The new Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet offers unfiltered driving pleasure. The fresh-air version of the eighth 911 generation is now being launched just four months after the world premiere of the Coupé. The Cabriolet is a model with particular importance for the sports car manufacturer: this is because the first Porsche sports car, the 356 "No. 1" Roadster from 1948, was an open-top car. Its convertible top was made of simple canvas. Full-featured Cabriolet versions have also enhanced the 911 family since 1982 - and have been equipped with electrically operated high-tech roofs since 1987.The new Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet is equipped with the most technically advanced roof design that Porsche has to offer. The electrohydraulic system is now even lighter and closes the fabric hood in just twelve seconds, and can even do this while driving up to speeds of 50 km/h. The integrated wind deflector also extends electrically in two seconds and calms the air movement in the interior.The new Cabriolet offers pure pleasure even when the top is closed: the squat roofline mirrors the unmistakable silhouette of the Coupé. At the same time, special magnesium panel bows prevent the soft top from ballooning when driving at high speed and also offer optimum protection for the vehicle occupants. The heated glass rear window improves all-round visibility, while the automatic roll-over protection system increases safety. An additional layer made of heat- and noise-insulating material ensures comfort in all weather.
