Porsche 911 Cabriolet 2019 pricing and specs revealed


Porsche has lifted the lid on its new-generation, 992-series 911 Cabriolet that will land in Australian showrooms in the second quarter of 2019 priced from $286,500 before on-roads for the Carrera S and $302,600 for the Carrera 4S.

Available initially with a newly developed eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, pricing is up $3450 for both grades compared with the outgoing 991-series Cabriolets.

With a rise in price also comes a rise in performance as Porsche has increased power and torque from the turbocharged 3.0-litre rear-mounted flat six from 309kW/500Nm to 331kW at 6500rpm and 530Nm from 2300-5000rpm.

In the Carrera S, drive is sent to the rear wheels for a zero-to-100km/h sprint time of just 3.9 seconds, while the all-wheel-drive Carrera 4S will hit triple digits in 3.8s.

Optioning the ‘Sport Chrono Package’ on either grade will further reduce the acceleration time by 0.2s.

Largely mirroring its fixed-roof sibling in exterior style, the new 911 Cabriolet wears a fresh front face, recessed door handles and new rear lighting signature while retaining the classic Porsche sports car proportions.

However, the drop-top body style features an electric-folding fabric roof that can be open or stowed at speeds up to 50km/h and, thanks to new hydraulics, can be completed in around 12 seconds, which Porsche says is quicker than ever.

Inside, the new-generation Porsche drop-top gains a 10.9-inch ‘Porsche Communication Management’ (PCM) infotainment touchscreen system, while the central tachometer is flanked by two displays for extra driver information.

Also new in the 992-series 911 Cabriolet is a specific ‘Wet Mode’ that can detect water on the road and alert drivers of slippery conditions.

Other standard safety features include a camera-based warning and brake assist system, reversing camera and parking assist, while a ‘Night Vision Assist’ with thermal imaging, adaptive cruise control and stop-and-go function are available as an option.

Though just revealed in Carrera S and Carrera 4S form, it is expected Porsche will bolster its 911 Cabriolet range down the line with more variants including a high-performing Turbo, a base grade and three-pedal variants.
