Keeping the Porsche mantra of “Evolution, not revolution” alive, the 991 Series kept a close visual link to its 997 predecessors but moved the game forward a very long way. Designed by 993 stylist Tony Hatter, with a longer and wider track, the 991 brought back elegance back to the 911 cars. The longer wheelbase improves stability and the wider track means that a slightly milder anti-roll bar could be employed at the front, thus reducing the tendency to understeer, an inherent 911 trait. As it stands, the revised front and rear running gear combined with the larger dimensions make the 991 a different handling Porsche than the 997, particularly in terms of stability.
Clever use of aluminium panels, (the skin is 45 % aluminium and magnesium), enabled Porsche to reduce the weight of the 991 Carrera Cabriolet to 1,450 kg, which is quite an achievement given that 58kg of additional ‘safety products’ had to be added to the new version.
Also noticeable is the ‘corporate’ raised centre console housing the gearshift, a development first seen on the Carrera GT. The handbrake lever was replaced by an electric parking brake. The combination of more space and richer materials has elevated the 911’s cockpit to a distinctly ‘grand touring’ environment rather than that of a mere topflight sports car. The 3,436cc engine produces 345 bhp. Performance figures show a top speed of 178 mph, and a 0-62 mph acceleration time of just 5.0 secs.
Supplied new by Porsche in September 2014, our 991 Cabriolet has a large factory options list and a full servicing history. It has benefited from a recent Porsche specification service including spark plugs, brake fluid change, air conditioning service and a new N-rated tyre set The 991 Cabriolets now represent excellent Porsche value in the marketplace, and with naturally aspirated Porsches become ever-more desirable, this is an opportunity to acquire a well-equipped example at a realistic value. A 12-month written warranty will also be included.
