What is it?
The new cabriolet version of the latest 991 Turbo, and as such it won't be regarded as the purest of 911s by those who profess to "know" their 911s. And to the average Turbo cabrio driver, this won't matter not one iota.
To Porsche, though, everything matters, which is why for the last two generations of 911 - second generation 997 and latest 991 - Weissach's engineers have focused hard on trying to make the open-top model as crisp and precise to drive as the coupé. And never before have they got closer to achieving that goal than with this latest Turbo cabrio.
Mind you, such proximity to perfection does come at a price. In basic form, without any options in place, the Turbo cabrio costs an eye watering £129,223. And as tested - with the must-have Sports Chrono Package installed (we'll come to why in a second) plus a couple of other choice extras - the price gets closer to the £140,000 mark.
