Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

The Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet is proof of how committed the German sportscar builder are to making great cars. Due to public demand, it remains in their range despite being imbalanced by a rear engine. This Achille’s heel is overcome by brilliant engineering. So much so that it has made this car the most capable sportscar you are likely to come across. The 911’s straight line speed would give any car a run for its money but where it really excels is its agility. The Porsche 911 Carrera is the fastest way of getting from A to B on 4 wheels and yet remains a well put together, useable every day car. While the cabriolet loses a little of the coupe’s poise and agility it remains class-leading in terms of its precision handling.

The new PDK sequential gearboxes make a big performance jump compared to the old Tiptronic units.
