Spyshots: 2013 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabrio

The brand new Porsche 911 Turbo has been spotted while undergoing testing near the Arctic Circle, where the isolation of that folding roof must have been tested to the extreme. The good news is that the driver doesn’t seem to be wearing ski clothes and a furry hat, so the soft-top must be up to the job.

The new Turbo is supposedly powered by a brand new engine configuration - a tri-turbo flat-six unit displacing 3.8-liters as usual, but providing 530 hp or more without much in the way of turbo lag.

Compared to the regular 911 Carrera Cabriolet, the Turbo version comes with bigger ear-wheel arches and a new active rear spoiler.

We’ll remind you that the outgoing 997 generation Turbo was launched, it was the first performance car with variable turbine geometry, so we’re right in expecting a veritable technological showcase with the next one.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
