    I love this new roof... so smooth and flat!


    Re: New 991 Cab Pics

    Yeah, it's almost like it covers a metal roof...

    Re: New 991 Cab Pics

     

    Agreed. It seems that both the Cayenne II and the 991 are shaping up to become good looking cars. I have recently parked next to an R8 and have to say that the 911 can certainly use a dramatic make-over 


    Re: New 991 Cab Pics

    The styling changes are too subtle for me to appreciate. The roof contours do not look anything like those of my Cab, and suggest a cloth covering on a metal structure underneath. The extended length of the new car would allow for more seat space in the coupe and stowage space for a hard top on the cab.

    It looks as if there is something beneath that canvas. Look the part just above the back window.


    Re: New 991 Cab Pics

    That would make sense: if it were a metal folding roof, additional length might be needed to stow it away...

    Re: New 991 Cab Pics

    You can see he three sections of a folding hardtop. The shape is also very similar to other folding hardtops... I'd bet some money that we will see a folding hardtop in the new model. Not great in terms of handling, as you have additional weight in the wrong place, but who knows, Porsche can always surprise us.


    Re: New 991 Cab Pics

    Yepp and  this 3 sections are going along with the folding patent we had before.


    Re: New 991 Cab Pics

    The cabrio is heavy already so unless Porsche has an engineering breakthrough for a light folding hardtop (), then it will be a better engineered fabric.

    Re: New 991 Cab Pics

     I wonder what a folding hardtop would do to the Targa.


    Re: New 991 Cab Pics

    I think a folding hard top would spell the end of the Targa.  Not enough Targas are sold to justify the engineering costs IMHO as a 991 variant...

    for me a cab has to have a soft top.....

    Re: New 991 Cab Pics

    hmmm, knowing porsche, they'll offer both, but the metal roof will be an expensive option ;-)

    Isnt the Targa obsolet anyway. Smiley

    No - just kidding. I think a Targa always have the right to be there. Lets face it, the only reason go for a Coupe instead of the Targa is the heavy weight and if you want to be on the circuit the risk of having a glass roof above you in case of an accident. But for private drivers, not having problems with the head-weight.... the Targa is the right car! And if you prefer a bit more wind, go for a Convertible.

    Re: New 991 Cab Pics

    I also prefer the soft top to a folding metal roof in general, but certainly for the 911. But the times may be a changin......
