Making their first public appearance in Los Angeles, the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S Cabriolet models add a new dimension of open-air charm to the latest versions of the hottest 911. As with previous generations, each retains the basic mechanicals and bolder styling cues from its respective wide-body T-charged Coupe sibling, but swaps its hard shell for a power-activated soft top that can be cycled at the touch of a button in about 13 seconds at vehicle speeds of up to 30 mph.

Both of these new Porsches are fitted with a potent twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-6 backed by a 7-speed PDK dual-clutch automated manual transmission. The 911 Turbo Cabrio has 520 horsepower on tap and the Turbo S corrals 560, allowing them to hit 60 mph in 3.3 and 3.1 seconds, respectively, and reach a top speed of 195 mph while still earning 17/24 mpg EPA city/highway marks. Like their 911 Turbo/S kin, each of these al fresco adrenaline pumps comes with the trick Porsche Traction Management all-wheel drive system as well as active rear-axle steering to enhance handling prowess. For optimum high-speed stability, they also have Porsche Adaptive Aerodynamics which consists of a stage-extendable front spoiler and an articulated rear spoiler.

Impressively appointed, the driver-focused cabins of these new Porsche drop-top models feature 14-way power sport seats in the Turbo and more deeply bolstered Adaptive Sport Seats Plus with 18-way adjustability in the Turbo S -- which also boasts a more extensive range of trim treatments and comfort/convenience touches. Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with navigation is standard in both, and audiophiles can now upgrade to a super-spec Burmeister sound system. Other key options include Adaptive Cruise Control, camera-based road sign/speed limit recognition capability, and a rear-view camera.   

Pricing for the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet starts at $161,695, while the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet commences at $194,895. Those figures represent $12,400 and $12,800 premiums over the cost of their respective Coupe variants.
