Porsche Develops the Perfect Track Car with the 911 Turbo S Cabriolet
Porsche has developed the perfect track car that can also perform well as a daily driver with the new 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet. What makes it even better is that you can drop the top whenever skies are clear and sunny. Even better, you can enjoy the exquisite fit and finish the 911 Turbo S offers its owners.
The 911 Turbo S uses a 3.7-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine developing 640 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque and offering 0-60 in 2.7 seconds and a top speed of 205 MPH. It uses a new 8-speed automatic transmission that replaces the previous 7-speed PDK tranny. The new turbos are mirror-imaged, the exhaust manifolds are taken from the GTS R2, and there is new intercooler routing. Unlike the 911s of old, there are a lot of electronics now getting the best out of the engine. The engine management system includes:
- Variable valve timing
- Variable intake valve lift — new for the Turbo models
- Turbo boost management
- And metered direct fuel injection
The Turbo S Cabriolet has to be strengthened due to the soft top, so it uses a combination of steel, aluminum, and magnesium to provide the torsional stiffness needed. The only difference between the Cabriolet and Coupe is that the loss of a solid top adds 154 pounds to the curb weight. Inside the Cabriolet is a tachometer-centered instrument cluster, and customizable side displays that change with the chosen drive mode. At the top of the center stack is a 10.9-inch color touchscreen that provides information for navigation, entertainment, and other miscellaneous vehicle settings.
The convertible top is operated with a single switch and automatically unlocks or locks the top as well. It can be operated safely at up to 31 MPH. There is also a powered wind diverter that helps reduce wind buffeting at higher speeds. When it is deployed the rear seats cannot be occupied, so leave the kids at home if you want some fun with the top down.
