The newest model features a fully automatic soft top with an integrated rear glass window. The roof can be opened or closed at speeds up to 50km/h. Thus the RWD Carrera S starts at £102,755, and the AWD Carrera 4S at £108,063. An electrically operated wind deflector helps keep things calm in the cabin when the top is lowered.

In terms of performance, the Carrera S Cabriolet and its all-wheel-drive 4S sibling boast the same 3.0-liter twin-turbo flat-six found in the coupe good for 443 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. It mates at launch to a new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission as standard, while a manual will be offered later as a no-cost option.

You'll be delighted to know the Cabriolet's no slower than the coupe - 0-62mph in 3.7secs and a 190mph top speed if you've gone for the more powerful Carrera S - but it's naturally pricier, adding nearly ten grand to the price of an equivalent coupe.

You'll have to be reasonably delicate with the throttle to remain within that roof-friendly envelope, though, with the Carrera S and 4S hitting 60mph in 3.9 and 3.8 seconds respectively - dropping to 3.7 and 3.6 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package.

Porsche says the new 911 Cabriolet is more torsionally rigid than before, and will offer the company's PASM active suspension system for the first time. The Cabriolet also features stylish wheels that measure 20-inches front and 21-inches out back. Night Vision Assist is also now available on a 911 cabrio for the first time, and the thermal-imaging camera is nearly certainly going to be a must-have for tech geeks like us. The RWD models now match the bodywork width of the existing AWD cars, and the rear axle is 44 mm longer. The rear axle has grown by 44mm, whilst the 45mm wider front end revives a traditional feature from earlier 911 generations: a forward-extended bonnet with a distinctive recess in front of the windscreen.

Styling largely carries over from the coupe so it's not too surprising that the model has evolutionary styling, a rear light bar and a larger rear spoiler. With the exception of the front and rear sections, the entire outer skin is now made from aluminium. This function detects water on the road, preconditions the control systems accordingly and warns the driver, who can then set the vehicle up to focus on safety, by simply pushing a button or using the mode switch on the steering wheel (Sport Chrono pack). All-wheel drive traction gives the 4S its slight accelerative edge but weighs it down when it comes to outright pace, resulting in a two mile per hour deficit versus the 190mph top speed of the rear-wheel driven S. "A park assistant system including reversing camera completes the standard configuration of the Cabriolet", Porsche adds.
