Maximum output of the flat-six power unit with forced air feed from two Turbochargers is 309 kW (420 bhp)at 6000 rpm. And the driver who prefers a more relaxed style of motoring from time to time will certainly not suffer with this high-torque power unit, maximum torque of 560 Newton-metres or 413 lb-ft being delivered consistently all the way from 2700 - 4600 rpm.

The Turbo Cabriolet comes as standard with a six-speed manual gearbox, but may be fitted as an option with Porsche's Tiptronic S automatic transmission. This five-speed automatic also featuring a manual gearshift via paddles on the steering wheel is specifically geared to the superior power and performance of the Turbocharged engine, the gearshift points adjusting infinitely to the driver's style of motoring and the route he is taking.

Like the Coupé,the new 911 Turbo Cabriolet comes as standard with four-wheel drive complete with a viscous multiple-plate coupling conveying 5 per cent of the engine's power to the front wheels on a good road surface with firm grip. Whenever road conditions deteriorate, for example as a result of wet or slippery surfaces, up to 40 per cent of the engine's drive power is conveyed to the front wheels for superior traction at all times.
