2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet Long-Term Road Test


2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet: Dash Nav

October 1, 2013

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet

The steering. The sound. The physical sensation of sitting forward of both the motor mass and drive wheels. These are the traditional characteristics to crush on in our 2013 Porsche 911, or any 911.

But I'm a simpleton. One of my current favorite 911 features is the configurable gauge that mimics the center console nav screen. The graphics are bright and crispy, and they're also right dead in front of you. Angling one's head slightly to the right to view a center console nav screen suddenly seems an inefficient use of neck movement.

Exaggeration aside, this is a cool touch where most automakers might simply give you a directional arrow and a distance figure to your next move in the small display between the speedo and tach.
