You know what? When I see the new 911 (991), I just can't wait for the new Cayman (981).
+1 (!) :eusa_pray
Exactly. 928 is my favorite Porsche of all times.
Still can't wait for the new 911 GT3 (991).
That does look absolutely stunning. One of the best looking cars I have ever seen in this shot.
Oh wow. It is really nice and proportional.
Remember all the controversy over whether the convertible version was going to be a hardtop? Has that been put to sleep?
Does anyone else think that there may be a hard top under that black tarp? That thing is so tightly pulled that it just doesn't look like a soft top. You can even see some creases under it as if there is a hardtop?
I knew it!
Your brother is such a lucky man. So jealous!
If I won the lottery I would have one in my collection along with the UrQuattro. My two fave retro cars!
Baah..now i crave to see the Turbo and GT3
^^ LOL, it never stops does it?
Now we have to wait for the insane Turbo and GT3 (RS)....drooooolllll
There has to be a hardtop below. It's far too sleek to be a soft top. I would say hardtop without much doubt.
I mean, I am apprehensive to actually say there is a hardtop there. Maybe Porsche worked on something that makes the soft top cloth be flatter, but there was a picture on here somewhere showing that there was some sort of hardtop being retracted into a testing car.
2013 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabrio tears up the Nürburgring
Could offer 550 PS
Our spies have snapped the first pictures of the 2013 Porsche 911 Turbo Convertible at the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
Wearing minimal camouflage, the prototype appears virtually production ready. The overall design stays pretty faithful to the current model, but there's a revised front fascia, larger air intakes and a new four-tailpipe exhaust system.
Engine details remain elusive, but rumors suggest the car will have a turbocharged flat-six with approximately 550 PS (405 kW / 542 hp). It will be connected to a seven-speed manual or an optional PDK transmission, which should ensure this is one of the world's fastest convertibles.
I am so loving this car most remarkably it is 45kg lighter than the 997. It is a shame that the Turbo will grow a rear with quad exhausts identical to the ones on the Cayenne and Panny, in favour of the dual exhausts seen on the 997 which are the same as the ones on the 997 Carrera.
Did Dutch Autoweek say it is 6.5cm wider than 997 models for both narrowbody and widebody (like the C4S)? That will make the C4S over 1.9m wide and the "big impact" is going to be with the side of my garage! Oh well, looks like I may have to rebuild my garage
Work on the street is that all S models will feature wider hips.
Weren't all mrk II models wide body standard compared to the mrk I?
Anyways, they didn't specify. I was wondering the same thing. They present numbers but they don't put them into context properly.
Btw, why haven't we seen pics of full LED headlights yet? Surely I expected them on the new 911. They have their priorities elsewhere it seems. Guess we should be thankful for that! All the effort goes into making a better car.
I´ve seen the Cayenne with them and they look nothing but fantastic. They are quite simple, a bright point forming an invisible square. 99% the same as the 918 Concept.
The new car is quite attractive and I am sure must be the best "mass" produced sports car in the world but the exterior design is disappointing in the sense that it is merely a medium-level evolution. The front end is too similar to the outgoing car and the rear although sharper is more plasticky also. The 993 is still the best 911 to date and Porsche seems to be unable to top that design. Hats off to the 993 designers.
