Hot on the heels of the new 991 Turbo and Turbo S, Porsche has revealed the Cabriolet versions ahead of the public reveal at the LA Motor Show in November.

Sharing the same technology and powertrain as the coupe, the Turbo Cabriolet gets a 28 mm wider body than the Carrera 4 Cabriolet, with the standard Turbo vents in the rear wing ahead of the rear wheels. There is the new Turbo front end featuring variable aerodynamic spoilers and new sets of wheels too. The fabric roof is fitted with a lightweight magnesium frame and can be raised or lowered in 13 seconds at speeds of up to 37 mph.

As with the coupe, the powerplant for the Turbo is an incredible 3.8 litre twin turbo flat-six unit which puts out 513 bhp and 487 lb/ft of torque, while the Turbo S gets 552 bhp and 553 lb/ft of torque. This gives 0 – 62 mph sprint times of 3.5 seconds and 3.2 seconds respectively. Both models are only available with Porsche PDK dual-clutch gearbox.

Prices have yet to be set but expect around a £9000 increase over the coupe, putting prices at around £126,000 for the Turbo and close to £150,000 for the Turbo S.
