For The Porsche 911 Cabriolet’s exceptionally stiff body results in minimal body shake and handling that is barely compromised compared with the coupe’s.

Against The electric power steering lacks the traditional 911 feel, and the cabin feels rather cluttered due to Panamera-influenced centre console.

Buyer's notes

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.
