Britain is Europe’s largest market for convertibles – fact. For a country that has one type of weather i.e. unpredictable and largely wet us Brits have an inexplicable appetite for soft tops (or coupe-cabriolets). Maybe we like to imagine that we are cruising down Sunset Strip in balmy LA when in reality we are basking under a thick chilly blanket of grey cloud with the heater on full blast. Maybe that is the point though. Let’s face it driving topless in searing heat can be a rather unpleasant experience. It’s certainly a quick way to get your bonce barbecued which is why we end up tearing around on the Costa del Sol in an air-conditioned small hatch just like the rest of the locals. So our moist little island is made for convertibles and what better example of the genre is the Porsche 911. So well-made that there is no perceptible difference between the build-quality and integrity of the coupe and the cabriolet versions and that turbine-like 315 BHP flat-six sounds even better with the roof down. Got that appetite whetted? How about one in silver with grey leather with a matching hardtop? 6-speed manual gearbox, GT3 body mouldings, Carrera Alloys and a Full Porsche Service History. Forget the weather – strip off and crank up the heater – there’s nothing like it! Click here for more details.
