 Pros The 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet convertible is powerful. It contains a 3.4-liter flat six engine that creates 350 horsepower and a choice of either a Porsche 7-speed PDK transmission or a 7-speed manual transmission.

 Pros This convertible is also fast. It gets from zero-to-sixty in less than five seconds (4.8 to be exact) and has a top speed around 177 mph.

 Pros One of the new Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet's coolest features is its new roof, which opens and closes in only eleven seconds. This convertible roof is made of fabric-covered composite panels that are attached to a lightweight magnesium frame. An actual glass window is attached to this apparatus, making for a unique and technologically-sound component.

 Pros This convertible features amazing driving dynamics. It has a fantastic-sounding engine, excellent performance, and only a bit less road clout than its coupe variant. New wind-control technology assures that the drivers hears and experiences as little wind resistance as possible-with or without the top down.

 Pros If you aren't keen on this particular Porsche 911 model, there are several more from which to choose, but, after review, we can say that the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet convertible is one of the best of these due to its excellent price point, stylish interior and exterior, and sporty dynamics.

 Cons Options and packages can rapidly increase the price of the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet Convertible to nearly twice its original MSRP.

 Cons If you're looking for the sportiest 911 Carrera with the best driving dynamics, you should stick with the coupe version. Like most convertibles, this Cabriolet slightly compromises the driving dynamics, though they are still quite fantastic.
