As we know, the 2014 Porsche Macan is set to debut at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show 2013. However, that won’t be Porsche’s only world debut at the show with confirmation being given that the brand new 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S Cabriolets will debut at the show. Additionally, Porsche will be bringing the brand new 2014 Panamera Turbo S and Panamera Turbo S Executive.
It’ll come as little surprise that the new 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S Cabriolets are essentially identical to their coupe counterparts with the exception of the folding fabric roof. Despite much of the cars technology already being known, there are still some unique features.
First and foremost, the revised folding fabric roof now features a lightweight magnesium frame which helps open and close the roof in just 13 seconds at speeds of up to 37mph.
Under the hood, the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet is fitted with the same turbocharged 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine as the coupe. That powerplant delivers an impressive 520hp and 660Nm of torque. Consequently, the 991 Turbo coupe hits 100km/h 3.4 seconds, but in Cabriolet guise, that increases slightly to 3.5 seconds. As for the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet, it features an uprated 3.8-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine pumping out 560hp and 710Nm of torque. This makes for a sprint from 0-100km/h in 3.2 seconds, just 0.1 seconds slower than the coupe. Both the 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S Cabriolets feature top speeds of 318km/h (198mph).
By comparison, the 2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo S is fitted with the same 4.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine as the standard Panamera Turbo. However, thanks to new turbochargers featuring larger compressors, higher injection pressure which sees it increase from 20 bar to 140 bar, pistons featuring a new aluminium alloy and specifically coated piston rings, the 2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo S produces an impressive 50 hp more. That results in peak power of 570 hp.
