Well we have to admit that when our feet hit the floor this morning we had no intention of making today’s posts all about Porsche, but then the new 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet models were introduced. The new seventh generation 911 Carrera will go on sale in North America in the spring of 2012 and will feature a newly designed folding soft top. The roof uses exotic materials to reduces its weight which included canvas magnesium and advanced high-strength steel.
In the rear of the 911 Carrera Cabriolet you will find the same direct injected 3.4-liter boxer six-cylinder engine as in the hard top model. The 350 hp can be motivated to run the 0-100 km time in 4.4 seconds and only sends its power to the rear wheels through a standard seven-speed manual transmission or an optional 7-speed PDK dual-clutch automated manual transmission.
The Carrera S model has inherited the role of big brother quite well and it is powered by a larger direct injected 3.8-liter boxer six-cylinder engine that is creating 400 hp at the rear wheels. The increase in power will reduce the 0-100 km time by a mere .3 of a second, officially doing the run in t 4.1 seconds.
If you are interested in purchasing one of the new Porsche drop tops you can expect to pay $100,000 plus for either model with the “S” being at least 10K more the base Carrera. Whichever flavor you can afford we will be jealous as these new Carrera Convertibles look hot.
We have two delicious videos released last night for you to drool over, Enjoy 🙂
