Porsche 911 rag-top gets a facelift for 2006

European enthusiasts are just getting their first look at the redesigned Porsche 911 coupe, which goes on sale this fall. But they'll have to wait until next spring for a glimpse of the next-generation 911 Cabriolet, which is expected to arrive in U.S. showrooms as a 2006 model. Like the coupe, the soft-top edition of the new 911 gets an evolutionary makeover, with a revised nose that sports traditional oval headlamps. Under the skin is the familiar rear-engine layout, with Porsche offering a choice of flat-six engines developing up to 355 horsepower in normally aspirated form. A high-performance turbo version of the cabriolet is expected to make its debut in about 18 months. -- Paul Lienert
