David Beckham’s Porsche 997 Turbo Cabriolet on sale

Posted on January 8, 2011


Back in February 2008, LA Galaxy’s David Beckham added a shiny Porsche Turbo Cabriolet to his Beverly Hills garage. Now, the car is on sale. Why? Well we don’t know but we are sure that is not selling his car because of the economic crisis.

Other vehicles in his fleet include a Lincoln Navigator, a Cadillac Escalade and a Bentley Continental GTC, most of them also wearing his signature 23 insignia.

As with the 911 Turbo Coupe, the Cabriolet also is powered by a 3.6 liter six-cylinder boxer engine with biturbo turbocharging and Variable Turbine Geometry (VTG). The powerplant already generates 480 hp (353 kW) and 620 Nm of torque at 1950 rpm. With the, optional Sport Chrono Turbo Package, which includes an overboost function, up to 680 Nm is even intermittently possible. The manual transmission version can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just four seconds. With Tiptronic S the time can be cut to 3.8 seconds. Both versions can reach speeds of up to 310 km/h. Fuel consumption for the 911 Turbo Cabriolet is 12.9 liters per 100 kilometers.
