Just like its coupe counterpart, the Porschè 996 Cabriolèt had little appreciation from the admirers of the German brand as it was judged too dissimilar from the canonical design of the 911.
Despite this, the car managed to have a considerable number of sales, and among the most appreciated models was the Carrera version, which offered performances very similar to those of the coupe variant.
Equipped with a 3.3 24V hexacylinder engine managed by a five-speed automatic transmission, the car was able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds with a maximum speed of 283 km/h.
This year a client of the Bulgarian company Vilner has requested to modernize his Carrera Cabriolèt both externally and internally, and the result is quite ambivalent.
Outside the car presents a new aerodynamic carbon fiber body kit and new 19" alloy wheels wrapped in sport tires.
Internally, however, it seems to be on a Rolls-Royce since the cockpit has been finished with fine leather and wood.
The contrast between the luxurious interior and the sporty bodywork painted in a striking electric blue with bronze details is stark, yet I like the vehicle intrinsically. And what do you think of it?
Thank you to Valentina Zanola and Alessandro Renesis for the cooperation
