Clocking in at a tasty 187 miles per hour, the 911 Cabriolet is well placed on this countdown.
Still providing passenger seating on the snug side, the Cabriolet is certainly not a family car, although the most recent incarnation of the vehicle is designed to target a wider market.
The impressive performance and greatly reduced price tag of the Porsche Boxster has historically impacted the sales figures of the Cabriolet, however the quality of the fifth fastest Porsche has never been in doubt.
Aesthetically, the 911 Cabriolet introduces a more space efficient and sound emitting soft-top roof and those concerned about tire noise will be relieved to discover that this new incarnation has moved to eradicate the problems suffered by its older brother.
All of this is secondary, however, to the performance numbers generated by a vehicle capable of attaining a slot in this Porsche hall of fame.
