‘The 911 Turbo Cabriolet is very significant for the Middle East market,’ he said. ‘This is a performance car that combines power, excitement and flexibility, and it continues with the notable advances the model has made for the last two decades. The 911 Turbo Cabriolet has always been a leader and the 2008 generation is the most impressive by far.’
Like its 911 Turbo Coupé stablemate, a 3.6-litre six-cylinder biturbo ‘Boxer’ engine – which is noted for its balance of power – provides the powerplant. This unit marks the highest level of technology in the world of turbocharged engines, and generates 480 bhp, and maximum torque of 620 Newton-meter between 1,950 and 5,000 rpm.
With manual transmission, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes just 4 seconds; with the Tiptronic S automatic option, the time can be cut to an incredible 3.8 seconds. While both versions can reach speeds of up to 310 km/h, fuel consumption is just 12.9 litres per 100 kilometres, which takes the 911 Turbo Convertible to the fore in its class.
