2019 Porsche 911 Cabrio spy shots

Porsche is working on a new generation of its 911 and today we have a new set of spy shots of the convertible body style. The prototype is for the Carrera S Cabriolet though the basic design will be common to all next-generation 911 variants. The styling is clearly evolutionary.
