The cars’ retractable fabric roof boasts a lightweight magnesium frame which Porsche says allow the cabrio to maintain a coupé-like arch to the roof when the top is up. The roof can be opened or closed in around 13 seconds at speeds of up to 48km/h (30mph). Porsche says the cabrios interiors are offered with a special two-tone red/black option at no extra cost.

The pair is powered by a 3.8-litre six-cylinder engine that delivers 383kW (520HP) in the Turbo, and 412kW (560HP) in the more powerful Turbo S. This enables the cars to accelerate from 0-60mph in 3.3 and 3.1 seconds respectively. Top speed is rated at (314km/h) 195mph.
