Porsche recently completely reworked its venerable 911. On the heels of that evolutionary new model the company has introduced a revised convertible version of the car as well. Anyone familiar with Porsche’s lineup knows the 911 is one of the most versatile models they build. It can be configured as an elegant grand tourer, an out and out hard-core road racer, a gracefully sophisticated sports car, and a number of permutations in between.
Porsche’s oldest continually built car line is also one of the world’s most respected. The product of some 50 years of continuous development and evolution, the Porsche 911 is quite possibly one of the best thought-out cars on the road today.
And now, there is a new convertible version of that car.
The best part of my job is test driving such sublimely enticing cars as the 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet. The worst part of my job is giving said sublimely enticing cars back at the end of the test drive. And make no mistake; I was sorely tempted to make Porsche’s people come looking for me this time.
All you have to do is run that 400-horsepower, 3.8-liter flat six to redline one time…
Actually, no, wait…
I’m getting ahead of myself here.
