Hello Achilles mates! According to the pooling result in the Instagram, we will review our choice of sport car. In this edition of #Porsche Weekend, the most voted car is Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet.
In 1984, Porsche released the latest generation of their most popular sport car, Porsche 911. This new series used the name Carrera again, after the last one in 1977. Porsche sells this model with three body options, Coupe, Cabriolet and Targa. The model made up to 1989, was the last Porsche 911 that resemble the original 911. Because, on the following year Porsche released 911 with new styling, brake, suspension and new electronic technology. Due to its resemblance with original 911, 911 made in 1984-1989 are very popular among collectors.
Tim Achilles received invitation from a car collector to look at his collection of cars, and one of them happens to be Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet of 1986. We were surprised upon seeing this German sport car.
From the outside, this sport car is very immaculate. The grey paint is flawless. No signs at all showing that this car is already 33 years old. The name of Cabriolet means that this car has a retractable roof. The roof is made of red canvas, suits the color of the body. The body is slim with classic looks. Unlike its successor that has wide body. The design is similar to original and popular 911.
On the inside, the interior is also very well preserved. It s dominated with dark red, very harmonious with the color of the roof. The luxurious look is shown from the use of leather, but the sporty looks remains visible with the seat design, steering wheel and instrument panel.
Under the bonnet, Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet has six cylinder engine with 3200 CC. The factory in Stuttgart claims that this engine has its 80% components new. This engine can release 231 horse power with torque of 5900 RPM, making this car only needs 5.4 seconds from zero to 100 KM/hour. While maximum speed is 240 KM/hour. With this speed, this car is claimed to be the fastest mass produced sport car in Germany.
When the engine is turned on, we can hear the distinctive sound of classic car with big engine capacity. This beautiful sound will make the owners of modern sport cars full of envy.
Right after the photoshot, it turns out that the owner will drive this favorite car of his to the garage for tire replacement. He admitted that he will change the tire to Achilles ATR Sport. According to him, this tire is suitable for his car. With one direction of tread design and solid Center Rib, the tire will make this sport car having traction and stability during high speed, both in dry and wet road.

He admitted of knowing all these since he also uses the same tire for other cars in his collection.
