How does the new 2020 Porsche 911 Cabriolet hit the scene? With a top that operates quicker than ever and 23 extra horses under the hood.
Six short weeks since the introduction of the new 8th-generation 992 at the LA Auto Show, Porsche drops the second variant of the Carrera S and 4S with their convertible model.
Propelled by a new eight-speed, dual-clutch transmission handling the flat-six turbocharged engine in the S models, putting down 443-hp, the new 911 Cabriolet receives the same love and attention found in the Coupe variant.

Sitting wider with redesigned shoulderlines and design cues, the next-generation 911 rolls on 20-inch wheels up front and 21-inch in the back, overall receiving 45-mm body width increase.
But Cabriolet fans are probably more interested in the more vital things — like the top fabric which is equipped with new hydraulics for smoother and quicker operation reducing the opening time to around 12 seconds, all operational at speed of up to 31 mph for those who can’t pull over or are simply too lazy to do so. Either way, we won’t judge. Bonus though, the electric wind deflector reduces drafts during top down cruising, carried over from the 2019 Cab.
