The craftsmen over at Porsche Exclusive have decided to play out some taboos – this time around the one that sports car don’t make out with wood trim – especially not in this day and age.
But as it goes this facelifted 911 Carrera S Cabriolet looks elegant and ready to hit the track at the same time thanks to this latest example of customization options / combinations. The Porsche Exclusive 911 Carrera S Cabriolet has gained a Jet Black Metallic paint and a set of red brake calipers to go along with the 20-inch light gray multi-spoke alloy wheels. While the exterior looks tastefully restrained the interior will be the main attention-grabber as it has been equipped with a wood trim – these trims are hard to mate with modern cars these days, especially if we’re talking about a performance model such as the 911. Porsche Exclusive fitted the wood trim to the steering wheel, dashboard, center stack, and on the door panels in a bid to make it blend elegantly with the Espresso leather upholstery. There’s also a Porsche crest embossed on the central leather armrest and some metallic finishing touches for some welcomed contrast.
The 911 Carrera S Cabriolet we have here has not been mechanically touched and has onboard the usual biturbo 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine taken to 420 horsepower (309 kilowatts) and 368 pound-feet (500 newton meters) of torque. The power plant has been mated to a standard seven-speed manual or an optional seven-speed PDK that sends the power to the rear axle. The best setup (PDK and Sport Chrono package) delivers a 62 mph run in four seconds, on its way to the top speed of 187 mph (301 km/h).
