 Pros The Porsche 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet convertible is one of the sportiest 911s being offered this model year. It has an impressive top track speed of 190, a zero-to-sixty time of only 4.4 seconds (with the PDK transmission, 4.6 with the standard six-speed), and its 3.8-liter direct-injection 408 horsepower engine are sure to impress drivers that desire power and speed.

 Pros If the 911 Carrera GTS doesn't have enough power for you, there are plenty of add-on packages that can increase its heft, as well as several more 911 Carrera models from which to choose.

 Pros Safety features on the GTS Cabriolet abound and include: Ceramic Composite Brakes, Porsche Stability Management, minimal body flex, and several airbags (including thorax airbags, two side airbags), a roll over system, Porsche Side Impact Protection System, and two spring roll over bars. A convertible couldn't feel safer!

 Pros The Carrera GTS convertible also comes well-equipped with added sporty features, including a sport exhaust system, a Porsche Active Suspension Management system, 19-inch RS Spyder Wheels, a SportDesign steering wheel and sports seats, and a variable resonance intake system featuring six switchable, vacuum-controlled valves.

 Pros Technology features are abundant on the Porsche 911 GTS convertible, including Porsche Communication Management (with several audio features, including voice control, Bluetooth connection, and optional navigation), a Universal Audio Interface, and an optional BOSE Surround Sound System.

 Cons If you're not looking for a race-worthy sports car, one of the standard 911 Carreras might be a better choice for you. They could be considered by some drivers to be a better deal for everyday driving. However, the 2012 911 Carrera GTS Cabriolet is by no means uncomfortable during a daily commute, especially if you want the option of soaking in some summer sun.

 Cons With its starting price of $112,900, the GTS coupe starts at a reasonable price, but this can increase very quickly with the addition of extra options and packages. However, sometimes the investment is worth additional features.
