2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet Long-Term Road Test

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet: Airport Shuttle Duty

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

Last week my Mom flew into town from Vermont to spend a couple of days with me before heading down to a conference in San Diego. I hadn't thought about what car I would have in advance, and it just happened to be our long-term 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet.

As I was pulling into the airport I started questioning how smart a choice the 911 convertible was. And how much luggage my Mom would have.

Turned out it wasn't a problem at all. I flipped down the two rear seatbacks to form a shelf for her large checked suitcase. And put her trumpet bag (she's a professional musician in her spare time) and backpack up in the front trunk, or frunk.

As for my Mom, who lives a sports-car-free life in her small college town in upstate Vermont, I think it was pretty special to get picked up in a Porsche 911.
