Porsche 911 Cabrio: Preview of the facelift

Porsche 911 Cabrio
Nothing really new here for regular readers of The German Car Blog, but still nice to see what to expect from the Porsche 911 Cabrio facelift which is updated with the 2009 model year coming up.

Visually, the car is being enhanced with larger front air intakes and new fog-lights in the front bumper, which give a more aggressive look. Sportier variants get a larger front lip but it remains uncertain whether the potent Turbo and GT2 models will receive the same upgrades.

Porsche will also be adding fuel-saving direct injection technology to its engines, which should see an improvement in fuel economy of between 10 and 15%. The other big change is the inclusion of a DSG-style dual-clutch gearbox as an option. Most models will also come with a slight power increase in the range of 5-25hp.
