2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet Test: Entering the Full-Exotic Realm

2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S cabriolet
Our old mental image of the Porsche 911 as that expensive but attainable little sports car for people willing to stretch just a bit from a Corvette has been outdated for several years now. First off, the 911 is no longer little, being nearly an inch longer than the hardly-small C7 Corvette. And its attainability, if it ever existed, seems a distant memory. Although you can order a stripper Carrera for $85,295, thanks to Porsche’s thick catalog of available options, it seems ages since we’ve seen one for less than $100K. And here we have the top-dog 911, the Turbo S Cabriolet, with a stunning price of $210,620, a figure that moves the 911 beyond its traditional phylum in the near-exotic and fully into the realm of boutique bolide.

Wing-a-ling Dragon: Porsche Offers Aerokit for 911 Turbo and Turbo S

aerokit_turbo_turbo_s-2-626x382

The masses went agog yesterday for the debut of the Porsche Cayman GT4. In some corners of the internet, the commentariat noted that Porsche and Ford had cued up a replay of the late 1960s/early 1970s at Le Mans, stealing the Ferrari 488GTB‘s thunder with the 3.8-liter mid-engined, manual-only GT4 and the hairball new Ford Focus RS. But Porsche’s not quite done with the new stuff, having also announced a new Aerokit for the 911 Turbo and Turbo S, courtesy of its Porsche Exclusive program.

Because the planet-inhaling Turbo and Turbo S simply aren’t capable enough, Porsche’s engineers decided to see if they could preserve the cars’ coefficient of drag while adding downforce. Spoiler ahead: Yes, they managed to do it. The package consists of a new front spoiler and rear decklid, available color-matched to the car’s body or finished in gloss black.

To our eyes, the rear wing, with its black insert and winglets, recalls the whale-tail and tea tray units bolted the bums of Neunelfers from the 1970s dawn of the impact-bumper era to the birth of the 964, which ushered in the era of the retractable spoiler. Here’s the thing, though, the new Aerokit combines both of those eras. That black piece adjusts itself for maximum dynamism und efficiency, varying its angle of attack to increase or decrease downforce as required.

 



In the Speed setting, the new bits increase downforce at 186 mph by 37 pounds, to 57. In Performance, downforce increases by 40 pounds and brings the additional pressure on the wheels to 330 pounds. And because it’s a Porsche Exclusive component, the Aerokit won’t void your factory warranty. Adding it to a Turbo at the time of purchase will add $6950; if you’d like it retrofitted to your existing 991, bring more money. You’ll shell out $6885.95 for the bits, but you’re also on the hook for installation and any required paintwork. Splash out the extra coin to figure out how to make it all work on a 912E and you’ll be our hero forever.
