2013 Porsche 911 Carrera: Handsome View From Inside

October 15, 2013

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera

I don't care what the technical name is for the aerodynamic bumps you see from the driver seat of the 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet, but they are quite handsome.

I like to think of them as a pair of well-toned biceps or the thigh muscles of a ballet dancer. Strong yet graceful.

Adding to the luscious view from the cockpit is the leather-wrapped sweep of the dash and techy-with-a-hint-of-steampunk analog stopwatch that comes with the Sport Chrono package.

Eyes up. Throttle down. Yes.

Here are more professional shots by Kurt Niebuhr.

    do you mean the front fenders? I think you're taking a shining to the convertible after all

    "Yes, front fenders is probably right. I don't know the technical term for them. There's one of the left and one on the right and in the middle of them is something that I don't know what you'd call it but it's beautiful and it opens up and you can store stuff in it."

    Yeah....the fenders on the FRS/BRZ are about 1000x's better looking than on the Porsche. Not impressed.

    I think the technical term you are looking for is headlights
