2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet

As is its practice, Porsche continues to roll out model variants of the latest 911 (991), the latest being the drop-top Turbo and Turbo S Cabriolets.

They'll make their global debut on November 20 at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show and will arrive in Canada early in 2014.

Be prepared for the privilege of owning one of these beauties for they won't be cheap. Starting prices will be $183,400 for the Turbo Cabriolet and $221,200 for the Turbo S Cabriolet.

Both will offer features and performance parallel to the Turbo Coupé model unveiled a few months ago, including a 520 horsepower engine in the Turbo and 560 horsepower in the Turbo S.

They are said to accelerate from 0-to100 km/h in 3.5 and 3.2 seconds respectively and to have a top speed of up to 318 km/h. If it matters, with performance in that territory, fuel consumption is rated at 9.9 L/100 km (on the New European Driving cycle), making them up to 15% more efficient than their predecessors.

A PDK dual-clutch transmission is standard as are Porsche's new Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive, rear-axle steering and active aerodynamics

Visually, the Cabriolets' top, with its lightweight magnesium frame, features a coupé-like arch to the roof when it is closed, aiding aerodynamics. The roof can be opened and closed in about 13 seconds, at speeds of up to 50 km/h.
