Oh, and if you're not especially concerned with picking up extra tenths of a second, Porsche will still happily sell you a 2020 911 Cabriolet with a seven-speed manual transmission.

Porsche has released pricing for its new 911 Cabriolet model. Continuing that tradition, Porsche unveiled its 2020 model 911 Cabriolet with a roof that the automaker says opens and closes more quickly than ever.

You'll have to be reasonably delicate with the throttle to remain within that roof-friendly envelope, though, with the Carrera S and 4S hitting 60mph in 3.9 and 3.8 seconds respectively - dropping to 3.7 and 3.6 seconds with the optional Sport Chrono package. The process now takes approximately 12 seconds and the top can be opened or closed at speeds up to 31 miles per hour (50 km/h). An electrically operated wind deflector returns.

Every cabriolet, regardless of the number of driven wheels, now wears the wider bodywork previously reserved for the sportier GTS and all-wheel-drive 4 trims, just like the coupes. As with the coupe, the auto has staggered-diameter wheels measuring 20 inches in the front and 21 inches at the rear.

The 2020 911 Carrera S Cabriolet is due later this summer with a base price of $127,350, while the 4S will start at $134,650. Either way, that's 0.4 seconds faster than the old auto. As on the coupe, the cabrios can be spec'd with Porsche's PASM Sport Suspension, which adds stiffer springs and beefier anti-roll bars, and reduced ride height by 0.4 inch. So consider it refreshing that, in pulling the sheet off its redesigned 911 Carrera S and 4S cabriolet models, Porsche chose to highlight the speed of the cars'. power-folding cloth roofs.

Porsche integrates a Wet mode for the stability control system this time around, and offers several safety systems, including forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, and, for the first time on a 911, a night vision camera system.

"This function detects water on the road, preconditions the control systems accordingly and warns the driver, who can then set the vehicle up to focus on safety, by simply pushing a button or using the mode switch on the steering wheel (Sport Chrono Package)", Porsche says.

In the cabin, there's a completely new design with a pared-back style. A central tachometer is flanked by free-form digital displays, while the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system has a larger 10.9-inch touchscreen in the center console. Five toggle switches underneath act as shortcuts.

Keeping purists happy, meanwhile, will be a manual version of the droptop, later in the model year. Before that, though, the 2020 911 Carrera S Cabriolet will arrive in the U.S. in late summer 2019, priced from $126,100 (plus $1,250 destination), while the 2020 911 Carrera 4S Cabriolet will be from $133,400.
