Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet facelift spied in motion

The facelifted Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet has been spotted testing on a highway in Germany. It was wearing a little bit of camouflage on the rear bumper and taillights, but even so it’s easy to notice the new version will look a lot like the outgoing model as the design changes will be kept down to a minimum. A full reveal is programmed for the middle of September where the entire 911 (991.2) range will be introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show prior to going on sale before the end of the year.

The biggest chances will be the implementation of a turbocharged engine in the Carrera as the new model is bound to receive a 3.0-liter turbo-six set to replace the old naturally aspirated 3.4-liter. This new motor is believed to be 20 PS more powerful which means the revised model will pack a 370 PS punch while consuming less fuel and emitting fewer CO2.

Aside from being more powerful yet economical, the facelifted Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet will also be a bit quicker in the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint and should have a higher top speed so we get the best of both worlds: improved performance and efficiency.
