The 2005 911 Carrera Cabriolet and Cabriolet S is based on the 911 Carrera and Carrera S Coupes released earlier this year. Porsche just had to build a convertible out of this baby. The 2005 911 Carrera Cabriolet and Carrera S Cabriolet are equipped with an electronic soft top that opens or closes in just 20 seconds and can be activated with the car moving at up to 30 mph. The 911 Carrera S Cabriolet and the 911 Carrera S Coupe are powered by the same 3.8-liter/355 horse, flat-six cylinder engine.
According to Porsche, the Carrera S Cabriolet and Coupe S will hit 0-62 mph in 4.9 seconds. The 911 Carrera Cabriolet and Coupe is powered by a 3.6-liter/325 horse flat-six engine that promises 0-62 mph in 5.2 seconds. As would be expected the 177 mph is tops for the Carrera Cabriolet Coupe and 182 mph is tops for the Carrera S Cabriolet and Coupe S.
Standard on the 2005 Porsche 911 Carrera S and optional on the 2005 Porsche 911 Carrera is the new Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM). PASM uses active damping to provide two suspension systems in one, one designed for an athletic yet comfortable ride and the other for performance driving situations.
