Porsche hit the nail right on the head with the 992 generation 911. The company dropped the covers on the 4 and 4S Coupe in November last year when it showcased the new generation moniker at the 2018 LA Auto Show. Expanding the line-up, the company revealed the first official look of the same versions in a Cabriolet body style.
Similar to the coupe, the 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S and 4S Cabriolet will sport the twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre flat-6 engine that churns out 443hp and 528Nm of torque, 23hp and 29Nm higher than its previous generation respectively. And like the coupe, Porsche has talked only about the new 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission by far. This set up replaces the 7-speed automatic on the previous generation 911.
The new soft-top on the Cabriolet stretches over a wider body and opens or close in just 12 seconds at speeds up to 49kph.
Porsche claims that the new 911 lunges to a 100kph in just 3.5-seconds while the all-wheel-drive 4S will do it in 3.4-seconds when both are equipped with the optional Sports Chrono Package. Top speeds are 305kph for the S and 302kph for the 4S. Reports suggest that the German manufacturer will offer its PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) sports suspension on the Cabriolet models for the first time. It features stiffer springs and sway bars, lower ride height, and adjustable dampers.
The new soft-top on the Cabriolet stretches over a wider body and opens or closes in just 12 seconds at speeds up to 49kph. The new 911 sports a wider body that is 45mm wider with a rear that measures with the likes of previous GTS and Carrera 4 models. The rest of the model is a derivative of the coupe that we saw last year with standard LED headlights, a wider rear spoiler with multiple positions, and the taillight light bar that has become a design characteristic of all new Porsches.

Inside the cabin, the 2020 porsche 911 Cabriolet is characterized by straight lines and a centre touchscreen that now measures 10.9 inches with optional 18-way sports seats. The new 911 also integrates a Wet mode for the stability control system this time around and offers several safety systems, including forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, and, for the first time on a 911, a night vision camera system.
