The 911 Turbo S Cabriolet is Porsche’s ultimate luxury convertible. The car runs on a 3,800 cc, flat six, rear engine producing 580 hp of peak output. Active all-wheel drive helps deliver exceptional road grip and handling.

Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) is basically a highly advanced double clutch racing transmission, which shifts gears in milliseconds without interrupting the flow of power. PDK has been designed with seven sports-ratio gears. While the car reaches its top speed in sixth gear, the seventh gear is only there to reduce fuel consumption by not having to travel in very high revs for a long time. The best part of the drivetrain is a mode selector, which can be set to ‘normal’, ‘sport’ or ‘sport plus’.

The GT sports steering wheel in the 911 Turbo S Cabriolet features electric height and reach adjustment. Ergonomically located F1-style gear shift paddles are cleverly hidden behind the steering spokes.
