The fabric hood of the 911 Cabriolet models has a fixed glass rear screen and three integral elements manufactured from magnesium. Together, these make the hood highly robust and, yet, particularly lightweight. It’s also smooth and firm, the fabric is kept taut, and the design line is elegant. The hood opens or closes in around 13 seconds – up to a speed of 50 km/h.
The interior hood lining is made from a heat-insulating and sound-absorbing material, resulting in perceptibly consistent interior temperatures and an effective suppression of wind noise. Thankfully, however, even the hood’s soundproofing properties are no match for the resonant Porsche sound.
The new 911 Cabriolet models are also equipped as standard with an electrically powered wind deflector, which offers practically draught-free driving and minimal wind noise with the top down.
