Porsche 911 Cabriolet review

Driving

What is it like to drive?

The 911 remains an epic sports car, even in supposedly compromised open-top form. If you really concentrate hard, we’re sure you’ll be able to detect a slight loss of rigidity. But on the road, any shake and twist is as close to indiscernible as makes no difference. It grips hard, and has a kind of composure and stability the old 997 911 Cabriolet simply wouldn’t recognise. But the magically charismatic flat-sixes have been replaced by a bi-turbo job which, if we're honest, isn't as gratifying. Mightily quick, though. Quick enough that you'd wonder why a proper 911 Turbo or Turbo S was necessary.
