Porsche 911 Cabriolet 2019: the cabriolet improves inside and out

Porsche 911 Cabriolet 2019

Porsche has presented its new 911 Cabriolet 2019 Less than two months after the Coupe debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show. As usual, it has an automatic cloth hood, with a light structure with magnesium arches to avoid "roof inflation at high speeds".

The roof is precisely one of the novelties more interesting of the Porsche 911 (992) Cabrio. The engineers of the brand have modified its hydraulic system so that it can open or close in only 12 seconds , provided that it does not circulate at more than 50 km/h. When fully picked up, a wind deflector rises to ensure drivers are comfortable despite the wind.

Of the fastest convertibles

When you arrive at dealerships, the 911 Cabriolet will be offered exclusively in the Carrera S versions and Race 4S . Both have a six-cylinder engine with 3.0 liters of displacement that is capable of yielding 450 HP and 530 Nm of maximum torque between 2,300 and 5,000 rpm.

This engine is connected to a new dual-clutch transmission with eight gears that It allows the Carrera S to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds and to reach 306 km/h. The units with all-wheel drive reduce this mark of acceleration to 3.6 seconds, although its maximum speed is reduced slightly to 304 km/h.

Leaving aside the benefits in a straight line, according to those responsible for the 911 Cabrio will be better between curves because it has more torsional rigidity than its predecessor and can also be equipped with the Porsche Active Suspension Management system for the first time. If you choose with this extra, the car has stiffer stabilizer bars and a height up to the ground 1 cm lower. Porsche says the changes give the model a "more neutral feel on the road," as well as a better weight distribution.

Like In the Coupe model, the 911 Cabriolet 992 has a bar-shaped taillights that cross from side to side and a larger rear spoiler. It also has tires of 20 inches in front and 21 inches behind . In the interior it is not much different from his brother with a roof. It has an analog and digital mixed instrumentation, as well as a 10.9-inch multimedia system.
