The Top Gear car review:Porsche 911 Cabriolet
For:No-compromise all-rounder, excellent roof, coupe-like drive
Against:Residual '911 Cabriolet' connotations, turbo'd engines less involving
What is it?
Sniffier car enthusiasts look on scornfully at any sort of rag-top Porsche 911, but we know Top Gear readers are a much more enlightened bunch. Even with the new turbo engines, the coupe is one of the world’s best sports cars, so how can its open top cousin be anything other than brilliant too? Sure, there are certain white sock connotations with 911 Cabriolets but if you’re a sunworshiper who loves driving, best get over them. This, see, retains all the core strengths of the coupe but adds a new charm of its own too.
