2012 Porsche 911 Cabriolet unveiled, price starts at $97,300 (w/ Video)

We’re not sure why Porsche didn’t take advantage of the 2011 LA Auto Show for the following two debuts but either way – here they are. Following the debut of the coupe model, the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet and the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet are making their world debut today, with sales in the United States to start in spring 2012.

Design changes are very similar to that of the new coupe 911 Carrera along with redesigned tail lights and a more aerodynamical structure.
