Porsche's least expensive convertible offers sleek styling, ample acceleration, and tenacious handling. It comes powered in its base form by a 225-horsepower, 2.7-liter six-cylinder engine, which is coupled to a five-speed manual transmission. The S version receives a 258-horsepower, 3.2-liter six-cylinder powerplant and a six-speed-manual gearbox. Both models can be equipped with a five-speed-automatic transmission that offers manual gear selection. A power-operated top, along with four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes, automatic air conditioning with air filtration, a CD stereo, speed-dependent extendable rear spoiler, partial-leather upholstery, heated washer nozzles, and locking alloy wheels come standard. For customization's sake, an Aerokit Package with integrated front and rear spoilers is offered, along with one of the longest lists of available interior and exterior cosmetic tweaks in the business - for example, virtually every switch, button, and knob can be leather-wrapped in any of several finishes.
