Yeah I spent a few years in South Yorkshire and I wouldn't bother with a cabrio either. 4x4, Amphicar and a snowmobile, probably. Maybe something with a gun turret.

"Puffy" here means "bloated" I assume.

Two things you need to drive a cabrio, apparently:

1: Comfort in one's own sexuality.
2: A full head of hair.
...or 2a: A hat.

The only thing I'm conscious of when I'm driving it is inflicting my musical taste on the unfortunate souls nearby.

There's something about a cabrio that seems to bring out the worst in people, but my formative experiences in a 911 were all in an open top.

PSE. And manual Wink




We have the same car. Sports Chrono?

PSE turned always on? thats the key thing to do Smile

SSK? also essential Smile

I've had cabrio's since 1999 and wouldnt have it any other way.

Lots of people still say "ohhh but it flops around like a fish with no roof", not realising the 997 was designed as a cabrio, so it doesnt......


Yes it’s got Sports Chrono but I’ve not done the SSK

And I never drive it hard ......honestly Floor


Get one of the cheapo SSK kits from ebay, they're about £25 or £30. Brilliant upgrade. Mines fine about 3 years later Smile

I like cabs, but not good for me as I need the occasional rear seats and the rears in the cab are a bit upright . Thumb

I can't disagree, but I'm pretty short at 5"6 and can sit upright in the back of my cab, but in a 992 coupe I have to crouch as there's not enough headroom. I assume none of the earlier coupes are any taller.

I conclude that for a short person, the Cab is more comfortable in the rear despite the slanted seats. Except if you're doing 100mph plus that is Grin

My mate Dave is over 6ft and doesn't have a problem in the back seats. He does resemble a praying mantis when in there though.

I drove convertible cars for approximately 17 years different makes before I bought a 911 coupe, I still wouldn't mind a convertible again this thread makes you want one.
I've always liked the contrast of the Porsche lines with fabric hoods, some nice cars on here.
Driving convertibles I gauged the correct temperature to 19 - 20 degree C as just about perfect, not to hot & not to cold, that's the best time to have it off Grin
