Motor Trend Calls New 911 ‘Ultimate Social Car’

New 911 Turbo Cabriolet a Modern Engineering Feat

Calling the new Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet a “Magnificent Beast,” the reviewers at Motor Trend magazine say the latest Porsche entry is sure to turn heads, and keep them staring in your direction. Turn the driving mode knob to sport and the cool looks come to life. “The response underfoot is immediate and fully attentive,” they wrote. “The suspension becomes more playful, more rambunctious. Give the throttle a kick, and the metallic whirr of the turbos tickles your cochlear nerve receptors. Suddenly let off the gas, and the bark of the exhaust backfire in overrun is worth the price of admission.” In other words, driving the newest 911 is a hoot, which you can experience for yourself by taking a trip to Porsche of Tucson.

Puts the Power to the Pavement

Step on the throttle and there won’t be a lot of tire burning, which is good for your wallet and your track times. The new Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet sticks to the road like fly paper, resulting in sub three second times going from 0 to 60 mph. You can expect a quarter-mile run in the 11 second range, topping out at around 125 mph. “The way this car puts down power is magic,” wrote one reviewer. “I could stand on the throttle from about halfway around the skidpad, and it would barely break the rears (tires) loose on the exit.”

Choose from Two Trim Packages

As you might expect, the newest 911 doesn’t come cheap. The base model starts at around $174K, while the S package begins just above $200k. You get a few more horsepower in the S package (580 to 540 for the base) and your top track speed is 205 mph vs. 198. The S model also features a generous use of Carbon Fiber, cutting the weight and increasing performance and efficiency. Both models are loaded with standard features that add to the enjoyment of owning a Porsche. Heated leather seats, a GT sport steering wheel with shift paddles, on-board fire extinguisher and a killer infotainment system to supply tunes and hands-free communication are all part of the package.

Go Fast, Stop Fast

Both models of the Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet offer some serious braking systems, with large brake discs both front and rear. Other important safety features include the Porsche Side Impact Protection System, three-point automatic seat belts and automatically deploying safety bars. Put the top down and let the wind get in your hair to full enjoy the 911 Cabriolet experience when you take your test drive at Porsche of Tucson.
