MISSISSAUGA, Ont.—Porsche’s new 911 turbo drop-top models will get a substantial price bump over their roof-toting twins when they hit Canadian showrooms early next year, the German automaker announced.
The all-new top-of-the-line 2014 911 Turbo and Turbo S Cabriolet models will come with sticker prices of $183,400 and $221,200, respectively, when they arrive in Canada in early 2014—a jump of more than $14,000 each over the equivalent coupe models.
Equipped with a turbocharged 3.8-litre four-cylinder boxer engine, the new 911 Cabriolets average an estimated 9.9 litres/100 kms city/highway, which Porsche says is a 15 per cent increase in efficiency over their predecessors, all while pushing out an extra 30-horsepower each.
The 911 Turbo delivers 520-hp, while the Turbo S model comes with 560-hp.
The two open-top 911s accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 3.5 and 3.2 seconds, respectively, and have a top speed of up to 318 km/h.
Mated to the high-horsepower engines will be a standard dual-clutch transmission and the new Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive, as well as rear-axle steering.
The cabriolets also feature adjustable active aerodynamics and a magnesium-framed bow top that gives a coupe-like arch to the roof when the top is closed.
