Porsche 911 Turbo Spied Topless
As Porsche hits its stride amid one of its most important roll-outs of late -- that of the classic Porsche 911 Turbo -- UK-based Car Magazine has snapped some shots of the drop-top version of the car a week before the automaker releases its official shots.
These spy photos aren't the first of their kind, what with Brenda Priddy's cunning shooters catching the cabrio in Sweden last March, but we'll take whatever we can get -- we've been waiting over a year for the topless version of the new 911 Turbo since the launch of its coupe sibling at the Geneva Motor Show in March of 2006.
We expect about the same performance despite the altered weight distribution -- a likely 3.7-4 seconds from 0 to 60 depending on whether the beaut is decked out with the manual or DSG "Tiptronic" transmission, and a top speed just shy of the hard top's 192 mph.
The result is one of the fastest convertibles on the market, equally at home on the Autobahn or in Beverly Hills.
