STUTTGART, Jan. 10, 2012 /CNW/ -
Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, unveiled the 911 Carrera
Cabriolet in Detroit today. The 911 is making its debut with a
completely new roof concept that combines the elegant styling of the
Coupe with the advantages of a light fabric hood. So it is that the
Cabriolet continues all the innovations of the new 911 Carrera family,
complemented by new features for open sports cars: intelligent
lightweight design ensures less weight and more sportiness, lower fuel
consumption and greater comfort. As with the Coupes, the new Cabriolets
start with the 911 Carrera, powered by a 350 hp (257 kW), 3.4-litre
six-cylinder engine and the 911 Carrera S with 400 hp (294 kW) flat
engine and 3.8 litre displacement.

Matthias Mueller, President and Chief Executive Officer of Dr. Ing. h.c.
F. Porsche AG, unveiled the new Cabriolet in Detroit. "Our engineers
have built the best 911 in 48 years. That applies every bit as much to
the Coupe as it does to the Cabriolet." In his speech, he also
observed: "In 2011, with 118.867 deliveries, Porsche set a new record
in the company's history. In 2012 we are planning to continue growing
as well and will raise this record performance to new heights."
Together with the 911 Carrera Coupe, the Cabriolet is putting a sporty
emphasis on the first motor show 2012. Other exhibits as well are in
the same vein: The puristic Panamera GTS is a variant of the Gran
Turismo family with optimised driving dynamics; the Cayman R lends
motor racing flair to the two-seater sports Coupe class.
