Newest in the long line of open-top Porsche models, the Porsche Carrera S Cabriolet first appeared in the 911 family more than 30 years ago. Even today it continues to symbolize the uniquely intense driving experiences Porsche is known for.

Porsche has put in a lot of work in optimizing the weight of the soft top element of this car making sure it now takes just about twelve seconds to completely fold away. A new hydraulic motor has been employed for this task that closes the soft top back up with the same swiftness too, even while cruising at speeds of up to 50 km/h.

The high-tech structure of the soft top is made predominantly from magnesium which prevents the roof from ballooning even at high speeds.

This is the 70th consecutive year Porsche has participated in the Geneva Motor Show with its first appearance in 1949.
