spy shot porsche 911 cabriolet

Porsche has officially shown off its latest 911, and we got up close with the 2012 hardtop at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Droptop fans are still waiting on their own version of the 991, and our spy photographers have just managed to capture a few images of the upcoming convertible. The 2012 Porsche 911 Cabriolet should arrive on the auto show circuit in the next few months before it heads to your local dealership.

You can expect to find the same 3.4- and 3.6-liter flat-six engines tucked in the back as seen in the hardtop Carrera and Carrera S. Each will be paired with the PDK double-clutch or the all-new seven-speed manual gearbox. Whichever engine and transmission you decide to go with, expect to pay around $90k-100k for the privilege.
