When I was deposed for my divorce, the other side’s lawyer wanted to know, for some unimaginable legal purpose, how many times my then and soon to be disposed-of wife rode with me on my 90 mph offshore raceboat.


“And why was that?”

“It mussed up her hair.”

At which point my lawyer, who also knew her way around her husband’s much more powerful supercat raceboats, chirped in and said:

“It can get worse. Sometimes, the wind is known to rip your clothes off.”

The court reporter guffawed, then hit her keys with extra energy. The other side’s straight-laced lawyer blushed and moved on to other lines of questioning.

That little episode crossed my mind when I opened the email from Porsche which announced the impending (March 3 2012) availability of the topless models of the 911 Carrera and 911 Carrera S in the new 911 design.

Both cars for fresh air fanatics  will have the same engine as their Carrera Coupé equivalent. The rear of the 911 Carrera Cabrio houses a 3.4-litre flat engine generating 350 hp (257 kW) of power driving the rear wheels through a seven-gear manual transmission. The open-top Carrera S comes with a 3.8-litre six-cylinder engine developing 400 hp (294 kW), which are turned into forward motion also by a seven-gear manual transmission. A Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK double clutch transmission) is available as an optional extra.

The 911 Carrera Cabriolet will be launched in Germany on March 3, 2012. The prices for the 911 Carrera Cabriolet start in Germany at 100,532 Euros, the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet starts at 114,931 Euros including value-added tax in both cases.

If there are any volunteering ladies with loose-fitting garments, then I will ask Porsche for a tester.
