The 911 Cabriolet models have also always been characterised by open virtues. Made for civilised cruising on the coastal road, but also for some sporty corner chasing in the mountains. Here, just like there, they excel with powerful forward thrust, great agility, and anticipation aplenty on every inch of tarmac.
What does that have to do with design? A great deal, because not only does the innovative fabric hood capture the elegance of a 911 Coupé silhouette, the low drag coefficient and use of lightweight materials also mean that the 911 Cabriolet models come uncannily close to matching the performance of a closed-top 911. Form and function once again working as one. In a particularly aesthetic way.
