Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet

With the Porsche 9-11 Carrera S Cab, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is double the drive fun to be had from the new 911 Carrera by putt a Cab aboard the Takeoveré. The entry of the new genesis of the sports car definitive is existence followed sole a few months afterwards by the open-top models of the 9-11 Carrera and 9-11 Carrera S in the new 9-11 pattern.

What the Putsché began with the new aluminium-steel consistence, the Cab continues with the all-new, singular cap: As a solution, the distinctive 9-11 cap job is initially maintained in its entireness. Tied when unopen up, the Cab cuts a okay bod. Thinking whippersnapper figure, eve including the use of mg in the cowl, ensures less burthen and more sportiness, frown fire use and greater comforter. With the open-top 911s likewise, Porsche has managed to blow the weighting gyrate and brand the new Cabrio models importantly ignitor than its predecessors.

Apiece of the two new Cabriolets has the like locomotive as its Carrera Takeoveré tantamount. The arse of the 911 Carrera Cabrio houses a 3.4-litre mat locomotive generating 350 hp (257 kW) of mightiness impulsive the backside wheels done a seven-gear manual contagion. The open-top Porsche 9-11 Carrera S Cab comes with a 3.8-litre six-cylinder locomotive development 400 hp (294 kW) and likewise a seven-gear manual infection featured as measure. That substance that the open-top 911s besides are distancing themselves eve farther from the rival in price of efficiency; both models exhaust less than ten litres of fire per 100 kilometres (NEDC). The Cabriolets also suffer the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) useable as an optional supernumerary, delivering evening lour fire expenditure and shorter quickening multiplication.

A fomite meridian decreased by a farther quatern millimetres (3 millimetres in the vitrine of the 9-11 Carrera S) compared with the 9-11 Carrera Putsché strikes a clearly showy step in outward-bound appearing.

As a answer of the 52 mm wider breast cartroad compared with the harbinger, the new 9-11 Carrera Cab has an flush more whole position on the route. The fomite’s 61 millimeter greater breadth at the forepart creates an tied more symmetrical fomite silhouette. Bigger air intakes underneath the redeveloped figurehead lights accent the salient appearing. Collectively the new Bi-Xenon headlights, they devote the new Porsche 9-11 Carrera Cab a typical expression.

The arse echoes the clean looks of the car’s forepart. It is characterised particularly by the new wider bum coddler under the locomotive lid air intakes. The outer boundary of the lid is contribution of the uninterrupted excogitation boundary, which smartly emphasises the fomite’s breadth. The constrict dimensions of the redeveloped top scheme when stowed enabled the infinite supra the locomotive to be victimised to outflank impression. The answer: an elegantly matt and symmetrical bottom subdivision.

Porsche new development: Lightweight magnesium panel bow top

Decisive to this anatomy, antecedently unrealizable with framework crack, is the modern pattern as a venire bow top. This entails the total material top – with the exclusion of the position panels – existence tensioned concluded a strict cap open comprising quadruplet straightaway abutting mortal segments. The quatern elements are the movement cap anatomy, two board bows and the ass windowpane, the underframe of which is made of mg, wish the former segments.

With the top unsympathetic, the occupants love a stratum of mood and haphazardness comfortableness that comes finisher thereto of the Putsché than e’er ahead. E.g., the outside corporeal is underlaid ended its integral country with an insulating mat. On the inner, the cap segments are covered with dimensionally static ceiling linings that express a well-heeled inside belief. The slope panels also are totally clothed with cloth so that with the goon unsympathetic, no proficient components are seeable anymore. The headway likewise is likewise loosely the like as inwardly the Takeoveré.

New: Fully integrated electric wind deflector

In improver – contingent exemplar featured as touchstone or as an optional supererogatory – the enhanced Porsche Fighting Dangling Direction (PASM), the new Porsche Dynamical Anatomy Ascendance, the entirely revamped electro-mechanical superpower steerage, Porsche Torsion Vectoring (PTV), the limited braking organisation and new wheels and tyres assure drive execution of the highest decree.

Electro-mechanical steering with Porsche’s trademark precision and feedback

The new 9-11 Carrera genesis sees Porsche’s commencement use of electro-mechanical exponent direction, which is immensely higher-ranking to every otc organisation on the grocery in price of its efficiency and preciseness. The profound vantage compared with hydraulic ability steerage is the reducing in fire expenditure by leastways 0.1 l/100 km. Extra new functions foster heighten puff and guard. Particular feedback is passed to the driver done the wheel and disconfirming or unneeded influences are filtered out.

Faster and safer cornering: Porsche Torque Vectoring

In the new 9-11, Porsche Torsion Vectoring (PTV) ensures yet greater lightsomeness, featured as received in the open-top 9-11 Carrera S and usable as an optional excess for the Porsche 9-11 Carrera Cab. The organization is useable in two versions: the PTV adaptation with mechanical derivative whorl when duplicate with manual infection and in PDK vehicles as PTV Positive with electronically controlled, full varying derivative engage. In a nutshell, PTV/PTV Summation improves the fomite’s direction conduct and preciseness by agency of exactly modulated braking interventions on the privileged bottom rack when existence compulsive in a extremely dynamical elan.

Courtesy of enhancements inside the locomotive itself, attended by the new functions thermic direction, on-board electric organization convalescence and car scratch/stopover office, the new models are capable 15 per penny more stinting and capable 15 hp more brawny. Briefly: fifty-fifty as a Cab, the 9-11 Carrera cadaver, by an eventide greater allowance, the benchmark for effective operation among agio sports cars.

Intelligent efficiency: Electrical system recuperation, thermal management, coasting

To step-up efficiency, the bagger engines have electric arrangement recovery and map-controlled chilling pee thermic direction.These measures unequaled slenderize fire ingestion based on the NEDC by 0.45 l/100 km. But it doesn’t stoppage thither: Porsche is introducing the machine first/stoppage purpose for all transmittal variants in the new 9-11 Carrera coevals – including for the manual transmittal. The episodic short-circuit interruptions are having a big gist: the automatonlike locomotive cut-off when the fomite is stationary is rescue 0.6 litres of fire for apiece 100 kilometres compulsive based on the NEDC.

The precept of lone lottery on locomotive powerfulness when it is really required has resulted in a new sports car procedure in the new 9-11 Carrera with PDK transmittal: coasting. In precept, coasting is cypher differently the car trilled on without might, and as a solution you can attain fire phthisis for a express outdistance eq to when the locomotive is loafing. In pattern that way fire savings of capable one l per 100 kilometres with a forward-thinking impulsive manner in unremarkable drive.

Sound Symposer for even more intense acoustic driving fun

The new Porsche 9-11 Carrera contemporaries offers the driver fifty-fifty sportier impulsive joy, sound-wise also. And that not good with the top refine: the Strait Symposer, featured as touchstone in both models, ensures an fifty-fifty meatier and sportier locomotive vocalize in the home and is controlled by substance of the Mutation release, featured as received.
