The Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S Coupe cabriolet versions will join the 911 line-up by November. The new open-top additions to the flagship Porsche models is bound to make a debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 20. The launch will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the 911 and the 40th anniversary of the 911 Turbo.

The 911 Turbo Cabriolet and 911 Turbo S Cabriolet promise the same dynamism, performance, and efficiency of the Coupe models that was launched a few months ago. The 911 Turbo Cabriolet will use the 3.8 liter turbocharged 6-cylinder engine capable of 521 PS which can make it launch from 0-100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 317 km/h. Likewise, the 911 Turbo S uses the same engine but yields 560 PS which allows it to go from 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 317 km/h.

Despite their powerful outputs, the models can reach 10 km/l on the New European Driving Cycle with CO2 emissions of 231 g/km. Compared to their previous versions, the new 911 Cabriolets deliver 30.4 PS more, 0.2 seconds faster in terms of their 0-100 km/h acceleration, and 15% more efficient.

The new cabriolet models also use PDK dual-clutch transmission, the new PTM all-wheel drive, rear axle steering, and active aerodynamics. The flared rear wings of the new 911 Turbos extend to 28 mm wider than those of the 911 Carrera 4 models. Furthermore, the roof opens and closes in around 13 seconds even at speeds of up to 50 km/h.

With the performance and technology of the 911 Turbo Cabriolet and 911 Turbo S Cabriolet, these models can be highly anticipated for its December sale.
