The Original: The Porsche 911 (997) Carrera Cabriolet

The Porsche 911 (997) Carrera Cabriolet is part of the lineage of one of the most famous sports cars in the world. This generation of the Porsche 911 was produced from 2004 to 2012 and represents the sixth generation of the iconic series. The 997 maintained the classic design that distinguishes the Porsche 911, but combined it with modern technological innovations. This model was available as both a coupe and a cabriolet, offering sporty driving fun in any weather.

The technical foundation of the Porsche 911 (997) was inherited from the previous generation 996, but the design was revised and refined under the direction of Chief Designer Grant Larson. The Carrera Cabriolet featured a 3.6-liter flat-six engine that provided 325 horsepower and a top speed of 285 km/h (177 mph). This was complemented by a six-speed manual transmission or optionally a five-speed automatic transmission. Technical highlights included the active suspension system PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management), which adjusted ride comfort and stability based on driving style.
