Target Price team says:
One’s ego might not agree, but the 350bhp Porsche 911 Carrera cabriolet has more than enough performance for an open-topped sports car. If you’re after outright performance and track day domination, you’d be better off waiting for the hardcore 911s to arrive.
In the same vein, Porsche’s latest seven-speed PDK twin-clutch gearbox blends extremely well with the cabriolet’s character, even though it is a relatively pricey option. That said, it’s easy to let the salesman talk you into adding a host of options that aren’t really worth having. Topmost of these would be ceramic brakes which add a significant numbers to the sticker price and aren’t necessary on a car that’s only ever driven on the road.
