The new Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S Cabriolets have been revealed at the Los Angeles motor show, boasting 198mph top speeds and power up to 552bhp.

The open top pairing follows closely on the heels of the recently introduced 911 Turbo and Turbo S coupe, boasting a unique body that is 28mm wider than that of the widest of existing 911 models, the Carrera 4.

A revised fabric roof, now fitted with a lightweight magnesium frame, opens and stows in a dedicated compartment behind the cabin in 13.0sec at speeds up to 37mph.

Power hails from a newly developed turbocharged version of Porsche’s 3.8-litre flat six petrol engine developing 513bhp in the 911 Turbo cabriolet and 552bhp in the 911 Turbo S cabriolet.

Official figures point to 0-62mph times of 3.5sec and 3.2sec respectively. Top speed in both models is put at 198mph. Fuel economy has improved by 30 per cent at a claimed 28.5mpg.

You got that right.

As always it going to be a really good car, as 911 turbos are always the fastest and most usable supercar for the money.
however i still prefer the Coupe to the convertible for obvious reasons.

The prices were also on the press release, is Autocar going to publish them?
