    996 Turbo Cabriolet Picture...finally

    One of our Users finally provided us with a few 996 Turbo Cabriolet pictures. Fresh out of production...
    As soon as I get his permission to post all of them, I'll do so.



    Re: 996 Turbo Cabriolet Picture...finally


    very nice. I wasnt aware of their new plastic bodywork! I bet it saves some weight...although I'm not sure how rigid that will be.

    Protection covers for production and in-factory transport?
    To be serious: the plastic parts you see will be removed.

    I hope your post wasn't serious.

    Re: 996 Turbo Cabriolet Picture...finally

    RC,
    You did it again

    You 'da man

    Very cool looking car

    Re: 996 Turbo Cabriolet Picture...finally


    Was I serious?

    You think anyone who would bother to join a porsche board would consider plastic body panels for a 120 thousand dollar car a serious possibility?

    Hell yes I was serious!!!

    Re: 996 Turbo Cabriolet Picture...finally

    RC,

    Patience is a virtue!! And...I have none!! LOL!!!

    Great stuff RC! A big thanks to the PHOTOGRAPHER and you! Rennteam.com rocks!!! No better web forum on the net for cars period!!

    996 Turbo Cabriolet and PCCB

    First at all, THANKS, guys.
    And yes, THANKS to the photographer of these nice pics.
    He's always welcomed to post here and take credit for his pictures.

    One of the 996 Turbo Cabriolets (which don't exist yet... ) was equipped with the PCCB (Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake).
    So PCCB probably will be an option on the new 996 Turbo Cab.
    Nothing really special but worth mentioning it.

    This is one great forum, awesome pictures. Many thanks to the photographer. This car looks like a lot of fun!

    Regards,
    Mike

    PS> Look how large the rear glass is, I have never seen a cabriolet with such a large rear window. Looks really cool!

    Re: 996 Turbo Cabriolet and PCCB

    Hi,

    @Mike that what you mean is the Hardtop,under the HT is the regular Cab. roof.

    cya,

    Wrek


    Re: More pictures... (1)

    I just noticed that the TT Cab has a huge rear wind shield. Is it Glass or plastic?
