Official Photos of 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet
Here is the reincarnation of the 991 platform – the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet. This sportscar will be ready for sale in March 2012 with the models offered are as Carrera Cabriolet as the base model and Carrera S. To recall your memory, before Porsche launching this luxury sportscar, many predicted that the overall design for the 911 Carrera Cabriolet would be carrying some cue styling from the classic Porsches. What do you think; does the 2012 911 Carrera Cabriolet has any similarity with its spyshots?
The cloth on the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet is using a semi-rigid structure and we have to give our greatest appreciation for the designers at Porsche’s HQ as they successfully brought the iconic 911 roofline for the Cabriolet model for the first time. The material chosen by Porsche to keep the weight down is Magnesium. The coupe model for the 2012 911 Carrera Cabriolet sportscar is lighter than its predecessor and carries longer wheels base which means that legroom inside is a bit spacious.
We are done with the exterior and overall design of the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet and now let’s continue to the heart of this coupe sportscar. Porsche assigns one same engine for the both models – flat –six or we like to refer it as V6. For the basic model, the 2012 911 Carrera Cabriolet is powered by the 3.4L which able to deliver 350 horsepower and mated to the all-new 7-speed manual transmission.
For the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet in Carrera S model, the German automaker provides 3.8L engine that delivers 400 horsepower and also coupled to a 7-speed manual transmission as standard feature. For the optional feature, Porsche offers 7-speed PDK (Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe) double-clutch transmission. This kind of transmission as we quoted from autoevolution.com gives better acceleration times and fuel economy.
The market debut for the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet will be setting at March 3rd with other appearances on the world auto events have already scheduled such as the next year’s Geneva Motor Show and could be presented at 2012 Detroit Show.
