The interior layout, fit and finish
Driving position and dashboard
Most people will be able to find a driving position that suits using the standard fit four-way electric seat adjustment. However, we recommend making the step up to the 14-way electric sports seats, which provide both adjustable lumbar support and a memory function.
You sit close to the floor, which gives the 911 Cabriolet a suitably hunkered-down feel from behind the steering wheel. And, while the seat itself is quite narrow, it offers plenty of support, so you remain comfortable even on long trips.
Sat nav and infotainment
Porsche has acquired a reputation for being stingy with the amount of kit it fits to its cars, but the 911 Cabriolet comes with all of the infotainment essentials.
An excellent sat-nav unit is included in the price, as is a decent eight-speaker stereo and a DAB digital radio. However, if you’re a bit of an audiophile, it’s worth considering the optional Bose or Burmester sound systems – the latter being particularly impressive.
All of the above is controlled through a pin-sharp 10.9in touchscreen. It's quick to respond to inputs and is placed within easy reach of both the driver and front passenger. True, being a touchscreen means it can still be a little distracting to use on the move, but it’s one of the best systems of its kind and has Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring.
