There is an image associated with every vehicle segment. SUVs, for example, are associated with style and practicality. What about convertibles? This segment evokes images of all things cool and care-free. Porsche convertibles fit this bill perfectly for car lovers that wish to turn heads on the highway.
Introducing the Porsche 911 Cabriolet
The Porsche Cabriolet is an offshoot of the Porsche 911 Coupe. It’s highly distinguished for its iconic fly-line and has been a mainstay since its inception in 1981 at the Frankfurt Motor Show. At the time, it was a concept model that later became a lineup staple due to positive feedback.
2020 Porsche 911 Cabriolet at a Glance
The 2020 model has some new specs. Under the hood is a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine that delivers 444 hp. It’s also available in traditional manual transmission. One reviewer from CarScoops describes the driving experience as nearly indistinguishable from the Porsche 911 Coupe, though with the turbo engine, the engine purr is a lot more noticeable especially with the open cabin.
Is a Convertible Worth It?
There are many benefits of driving a convertible beyond the cool factor. For one, the lack of a top means full visibility with no blind spots. You can also just as easily transform the vehicle back into a coupe with the push of a button. Finally, contrary to popular belief, modern convertibles do not suffer from chassis shudder due to reinforcements added in the undercarriage.
