Porsche 911 Cabrio:
History - Development - Models
(by Stefan Schrahe)
Is there a better way to feel the Porsche feeling as intensely as under the blue sky in an open 911 convertible? Aware that the brand's DNA was in the 911, the sports car manufacturer from Zuffenhausen presented the study of a Porsche 911 Cabriolet with turbo engine and all-wheel drive at the IAA in Frankfurt in 1981. Series production of the open 911 SC, which together with the Coupé and the Targa, was intended to ensure the survival of the traditional company, began as early as model year 1983. A good 30 years later, in 2012 the sixth generation of the fresh air bestseller rolls off the Zuffenhausen belt.
In his work, automobile journalist Stefan Schrahe describes the success story of the 911 convertible, researches the origins of the Porsche myth that began with the two-seater Roadster 356, and spans an arc to the latest high-tech model of the 991 series Enriched with interesting anecdotes, this elaborate volume presents itself as indispensable for all Prosche enthusiasts and for every automobile library.
