It is impossible to unobtrusively chase the asphalt with the Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet. Even though the Agate Gray paintwork still does its best to keep it somewhat modest, the über-powerful 991 Cabriolet exudes nothing but pure (Turbo) power. But what do you want with such a deep lower lip spoiler – including Turbo S lettering, 20-inch Turbo S Centerlock wheels, ceramic brakes with bright yellow claws, body-coloured SportDesign mirrors and everything else that sets this topper apart. Including the characteristic air inlets behind the doors, ‘fixed’ rear spoiler, (even) further flared wheel arches, many air deflectors and extra thick bumpers. The black convertible top has a beautiful streamline, but begs to be opened. If only because of the amazing sound…
Inside the Porsche 991 Turbo S you will find leather, leather and more leather. Even the airbag module is finished with it. The almost uniform black interior makes a tidy and high-quality impression. Equal, because even the Sport Chrono clock and the rev counter have a black background. In terms of tint, the many carbon details are completely absorbed in the 911 Turbo S cockpit. The panels in the dashboard, doors and center console, among others, are made of very expensive carbon fiber. The SportDesign steering wheel is also very racy. The Porsche emblems in the headrests are nice to kiss, but it is mainly the back of your head that will come into contact with them.
Options & extras
The rest of the furniture is also impressive: the 18-way electrically operated sports seats can be heated. The seat on the driver’s side also has a memory function, should you have to give up the ideal seating position temporarily. The co-driver has the privilege of having 2 fold-out cup holders, directly above the glove compartment. Porsche Entry & Drive makes boarding more accessible than ever, while the Burmester High-End Surround Sound system and Light Design package ensure a pleasant vibe on board the Elfer. Furthermore, this 911 Turbo S Convertible is fully equipped: ParkAssist with sensors front + rear and a reversing camera, Cruise Control, Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including navigation and Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS+) with LEDs and dynamic high beam. .
Technique & performance
We are not there yet, because Porsche also mounted a great range of options that are in line with the crushing performance that this Turbo S Cabriolet has. Think of Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV+), Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and of course the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB). After all, if you want to be able to stop the 560 hp blown 3.8 liter 6-cylinder boxer engine, you need to be in good hands. After just 3.2 seconds, the 991 Cabrio goes past 100 km/h. When all 7 gears of the bloody fast PDK transmission have been completed, a top speed of 318 km/h can be achieved. You can also leave the better cornering to the Turbo S thanks to active rear-axle steering. The Akrapovic sports exhaust meanwhile blows an enthusiastic tune. So open the roof and immediately start looking for the nearest tunnel…!
