8 Best 2017 All-Wheel Drive Convertibles

1. Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet

Base Price: $200,400

The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet is the most powerful 911 of them all. It also has all of the creature comforts that you would expect in the range-leading model. On top of all this, the 911 Turbo S Cabriolet adds an automated convertible top and all-wheel drive.

Performance is overwhelming. The 911 Turbo S Cabriolet’s 3.8-Liter twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engine produces 580 horsepower, channeled through the standard 7-speed PDK double-clutch automatic transmission. Zero to 60 mph comes up in just 2.9 seconds. Top track speed is a mind-boggling 205 mph, with ceramic brakes to securely slow it down. This is one fast car!

While you are shattering the speed limit (should you choose to), you can relax in one of the two 18-way heated and leather-covered adaptive sport seats. Leather also covers the door panels, the armrests, and other surfaces your body touches. The 12-speaker, 555-watt BOSE® Surround Sound System has a universal audio interface for hooking up your preferred sources of music and entertainment.

The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet combines ultimate performance with the trappings of a luxury car, while still giving you top-down pleasure and all-wheel drive versatility!
