2014 Porsche 911 (991) Turbo Cabriolet in Slate Grey by Porsche Exclusive

Article by Christian A., on April 2, 2014

Back in February, we showed you a bespoke version of the 2014 Porsche 911 (991) Turbo Coupe customized by Porsche Exclusive. The car featured an exclusive Lime Gold Metallic exterior paint and plenty of custom additions. Today, another masterpiece developed by Porsche Exclusive caught our eyes, but this time is a 2014 Porsche 911 (991) Turbo Cabriolet.

As you can see from the photos, this special 2014 Porsche 911 (991) Turbo Cabriolet features an exclusive Slate Grey exterior paint, which highlights the red interior. The exterior design is completed by the 20-inch 911 Turbo multi-spoke wheels wrapped in high performance tires.

As we said, the vehicle featured a red leather interior but also a carbon fiber trim, as well as carbon fiber door sills featuring the Porsche Exclusive lettering but also the message “100% Porsche. 100% You”. Under the hood, there is the standard 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine found also on the coupe version, which generates 520 hp (383 kW) and 660 Nm of torque (710 Nm with Overboost function).

With these numbers, the 2014 Porsche 911 (991) Turbo Cabriolet zooms from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.5 seconds (3.3 seconds in Sport Plus mode) and has a top speed of 315 km/h or 196 mph. Moreover, the cabriolet is able to accelerate from 0 to 160 km/h (100 mph) in 7.7 seconds (7.4 seconds in Sport Plus mode) and from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 11.6 seconds (11.3 seconds in Sport Plus mode).

When equipped with the PDK 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, the car has a fuel consumption of 7.8 l/100 km in extra-urban cycle, needs 9.9 l/100 km in combined cycle, while in urban cycle fuel consumption of 13.4 l/100 km. For those who don’t know, the 2014 Porsche 911 (991) Turbo Cabriolet weighs 1.665 kg.

In Germany, the standard 911 (991) Turbo Cabriolet starts at 177,882 euros, while in the United States the starting price is $163,995. Unfortunately we don’t have any details regarding the pricing of this model, but we do expect to cost more than the standard version.

The new Porsche 911 Turbo is essentially the first sports car in the world to employ adaptive aerodynamics, in the form of Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA). Thanks to this technology, the new 911 Turbo is able to offer the best values in terms of efficiency, utility and performance.

With the PAA, the new 911 Turbo is able to transcend beyond the borders limiting conventional sports cars. The absence of active components means that tuning a sports car’s aerodynamics would result to a compromise usually between efficiency and circuit racing performance. PAA is basically the employment of a front spoiler that can be extended in multiple levels as well as a slotted rear wing that could be adjusted in terms of height and attack angle.

With the PAA, the 911 Turbo could adapt its aerodynamic form to the present conditions or to customer preferences with just a single push of button. PAA essentially makes the new 911 Turbo the first vehicle that could shift between different aerodynamic modes while retaining aerodynamic lift balance between the front and rear axles.

PAA offers three aerodynamic modes involving the front spoiler and rear wing. In default, both the front spoiler and rear wing are fully retracted. However, when the front spoiler is folded back, the PAA lends the 911 Turbo a larger approach angle and ground clearance than in the previous model. Before, he previous model has an approach angle of 7.8 degrees and ground clearance of 139 mm.

In the new configuration, the new 911 Turbo offers an approach angle of 10.3 degrees and ground clearance of 156 mm, thereby reducing the risk of hanging up on steep ramps or on kerbs. This mode could be activated up to speeds of 120 km/h, unless the driver decides to manually intervene and then activate the aerodynamic or SPORT Plus button. Once the Speed mode is activated, the two outer segments of the three-part front spoiler are extended.
