PORSCHE unveiled its awesome 911 Turbo Cabriolet this week ahead of an Australian debut in September.

The Australian arm of the German sportscar marque has revealed that the 2+2 cabrio will be priced from $357,500 for the six-speed manual, and from $365,000 for the Tiptronic S.

As with the 911 Coupe launched mid-2006, the soft-top uses a 353kW/620Nm 3.6-litre twin-turbocharged boxer engine (with variable turbine geometry). A ‘Sport Chrono’ package, which includes an overboost function that can increase torque to 680Nm, will also be available.

Kerb weight is 70kg more than the coupe, stemming from chassis reinforcements and the rollover protection system behind the rear seats.

The three-layer roof opens or closes in 20 seconds. Drag coefficient remains at 0.31Cd and the 310km/h top speed is also identical to the coupe. The rear spoiler rises automatically at 120km/h, extending 30mm further than the coupe – and Porsche claims the cabriolet is the only vehicle in its class that generates negative lift at the rear axle.

The Stuttgart brand also said this week that specific tuning work for the cabrio was undertaken on chassis systems such as Porsche’s active suspension management (PASM).

The 911T cabrio comes standard with Carrera GT-derived six-piston front callipers, while ceramic composite braking hardware is available as an option.

Other standard gear includes 19-inch forged alloy wheels, bi-Xenon headlights, full leather trim, climate-control air-conditioning, satellite navigation and a Bose stereo.
