What's better than a thousand horsepower count and a 250+ mph top speed? Why, a thousand-horsepower count and a 250+ mph top speed with no roof, of course! That's what Bugatti has learned with its Veyron Grand Sport, and that's evidently what 9ff is planning as well.

9ff is one of the world's most alluring of Porsche tuning houses. They're responsible for the GT9-R, a supercar based on the 911 but capable of 0-60 times in the 2's and top speeds in excess of 250 mph which makes it a contender for the crown as fastest road-going car on the market. With only 20 examples slated for production and public consumption, it's also one of the most exclusive. But if the latest reports are to be believed, there's something even more exclusive and follicle-stimulating on the way.

The word is apparently sparked by the website which the Porsche uber-tuner set up specifically for the Emirates, a lucrative market for big-buck supercars. According to the brief statement and rendering on the site, 9ff will offer just three examples of the GT9-R without a roof. Of course, they'll probably cost more than most of us will see in our lifetimes, but that shouldn't stop them from selling all three.

      Ok, I'm going to admit from the start I didn't read the article. But I will say,

      Why the fu... would you compromise such a design by making it a convertible?!

      I find it a bit silly to say the least.

        "I suppose you think the Murcielago Barchetta, F50, CGT and Veyron GS are also silly?"

        Never seen the Lambo, but everything else you just mentioned has removable roofs, (aka roadster), or roof sections, (aka targa). In other words not convertibles. Convertible suggests that there will be components to make a soft top go up or down. A true convertible, (or retractable soft top) is less rigid than a coupe, targa, or true roadster/spider. Also heavier, in most cases. Thus compromising a potentially great design for a crappy gimmick. Such would be the case with this 9FF.
