Nearly four months after the all-new Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S were launched, the German carmaker has rolled out the models\' drop-top counterparts: the 911 Turbo Cabriolet and the 911 Turbo S Cabriolet.

Utilizing the same 3.8-liter flat-six engine as the hardtop models, power ratings are the same with the Turbo Cabriolet pushing out 514hp and the Turbo S Cabriolet producing 553hp. Acceleration from zero to 100kph is 3.5 and 3.2 seconds, respectively, before the cars reach their top speed of 318kph.

Surprisingly, despite the amount of power the cars produce, Porsche claims that both models have a fuel mileage of 10.1km/L.

Like their hardtop siblings, the Turbo Cabriolets also sport active rear-axle steering and active aerodynamics to enhance their on-road dynamics. The cars are also equipped with Porsche\'s PDK seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and the new Porsche Traction Management all-wheel drive system.

Eye-catching features of the drop-top 911 Turbo include its panel bow top and its lightweight magnesium frame that gives the car a coupe-like arch to the roof when the top is up. According to Porsche, this arch--besides offering advantages in aerodynamics--cannot be achieved using conventional construction techniques. Like their predecessors, the roofs of the all-new cabriolets open and close in 13 seconds even at speeds of up to 50kph.

The all-new 911 Turbo Cabriolet and the 911 Turbo S Cabriolet will officially go on sale in other markets in December.
