Porsche thoroughly upgraded the folding roof for the 2019 model, adding new hydraulics that can fully stow the roof in just 12 seconds. It can also be operated at up to 31mph - making it ideal for a country like Britain with changeable weather - and magnesium elements prevent it from 'ballooning' at high speeds.

A wind deflector keeps things cosy inside in winter, and materials have been thoroughly updated for the latest generation. Now sharing their basic design with the Porsche Panamera, there's a new rev-counter and Porsche's latest infotainment system featuring haptic feedback.

Existing 911 owners won't get a big shock in the 992 version, but they will spot lots of subtle updates. The new steering wheel is more upright for a start, and the dashboard features more horizontal lines for a more modern appearance. An attractive touchscreen takes pole position, above a row of buttons and a shrunken gear selector for the automatic gearbox.

Meanwhile, the instrument dials are a conscious effort to appease both the demand for new technology and 911 purists, with an analogue rev gauge sandwiched between TFT digital screens.

Equipment

While it might be a thoroughbred sports car, the 911 is also a car designed to be driven every day, and across entire countries. For this reason, it's loaded with the latest technology like adaptive cruise control, night vision and a system that helps to park the car automatically.

LED lighting is standard, as is keyless entry, all-round parking sensors and dual-zone climate control. Heated front sports seats, leather upholstery and a multi-function steering wheel are also included.

Options

For those wanting to make their 911 Cabriolet unique, the number of options is plentiful. Alloy wheels can be changed for around £1,600, there's a host of colour combinations for the leather upholstery, and adaptive sports seats can be fitted. Performance enthusiasts can fit the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), sports exhaust, Sport Chrono Package and rear-wheel steering. There's also lowered suspension and the eye-wateringly expensive ceramic brakes, costing over £6,000.
