The 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet has all the improvements, new features and redesigned elements from the coupe but in convertible form. It will be available in the rear-wheel drive Carrera S and the all-wheel-drive Carrera 4S. The all new roof design features magnesium support elements and new hydraulics, resulting in smoother and quicker operation. Conversion takes only twelve seconds. It can be raised and lowered up to speeds of 31 mph. The power-operated wind deflector will reduce airflow during the cruise.
The Cabriolet lineup includes the added availability of the PASM Sport Suspension, featuring stiffer springs and sway bars with a ride height reduction of 0.39 inches. Previously, it was only offered on S and GTS Coupe models. Both the Carrera S Cabriolet and the AWD 4S have the 3.0-liter twin-turbo flat-six boasting 443 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. The eight-speed PDK automated manual, revamped for 2020, comes standard and helps the Carrera S go 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. The Carrera 4S does 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 with the added traction of AWD.
A PDK-equipped Cabriolet is expected to start deliveries late this summer. That base price for the Carrera S Cabriolet is $127,350. The Carrera 4S Cabriolet starts at $134,650. There will be an extensive list of performance, comfort, convenience and customization options that will hike up those base prices.
