The new third edition Porsche 911 Turbo cabriolet will shortly be hitting the streets. As an avid Porsche fan I had to tell you all about it.
With a top speed of 193mph it puts it at one of the fastest road cars around. For all you motor geeks it has a twin turbocharged, 3.6-litre flat-six develops 473bhp at 6,000rpm and 457lb ft of torque at just 1,850rpm. It also has a six-speed manual gearbox equating to 0-62mph in four seconds, but if you opt for the £1,800 triptonic gearbox you can expect to shave 0.2 seconds off that!
It`s got a blaring 12 speaker Bose sound system, leather upholstery, a wind deflector and rollover bars that automatically pop up if sensors decide you are going to kill yourself at a silly speed.
It`ll set you back £106,180, but if you have a wad full of cash and small man syndrome this could change your life!
The optional Sports Chrono Package Plus features a dashboard-mounted stopwatch and, more important, an overboost function that allows peak torque to swell to 501lb ft for brief periods.
The only snag is that the fin doesn`t activate unless you are doing 75mph, not sure the police will understand!
