After the launch of the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera and Carrera S Coupe, the time has come for the unveiling of the new-generation 911 Cabriolet.
As with the Coupe, the Carrera Cabrio will be equipped with a 3.4L flat-six that develops 350 hp and 287 lb-ft of torque, matched to a new 7-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch, automated sequential gearbox. As for the Carrera S Cabriolet, it gets a 3.8L engine that produces 400 hp and 325 lb-ft.
The car's presentation at the Detroit Auto Show was chosen because the United States is by far Porsche's largest 911 Cabrio market.
The idea of a four-door coupe may be lost on some, but not on BMW. Somehow, they've managed to design a vehicle that's cavernous inside but feels small and nimble on the road. From long sweeping lines to tight, taut handling, the 2013 BMW 650i Gran Coupe is just that: Grand.
