Porsche 911 Cabriolet (991)

Why are we supposed not to like a Porsche 911 Cabriolet. Open-top sports cars have a long tradition. Open top roof down driving makes every trip a real memory. Perhaps this is because some argue that a true 911 has to be a coupe only.

There is no doubt that the 911 coupe is one of the pinnacles of motoring with its race bread manners, years of development, and superb reliability. Inevitably the cabrio is going to be heavier and slower than the hard top, but this is always a trade off when your greatest desire is the freedom no roof gives you. Some even label the car with an ugly tag but we just have to disagree. Our customers love the experience and we would also love to provide you with your Porsche 911 Cabriolet Insurance.

The roof is activated in just 13 seconds, and this is even possible up to 31mph! Even up to 75 mph the car can automatically employ its wind deflector.

Some will argue that the pluch interior has made to new 911 Cabriolet lose its hard edged character and that convenience is now the most important factor. Again we disagree as customers now want a level of refinement provided by other manufacturers. There are plenty of other hardcore vehicles out there for those who want performance over all else.

Manual or Auto – the biggest question to us. Both have their fans and both are superb on the 911. The manual gearbox has been honed by Porsche for years and the new PDK auto is a revelation – just take your pick.

The 911 Cabriolet has been built for the open road and wide country spaces. It is no coupe, but then it doesn’t need to be as it is designed with a different customer in mind.
