The front has been redesigned and it features new headlamps with a projector light and also daytime LED running lights. Also presented is a new central air dam and bigger air intakes with darkish chrome accents. Side mounted air blades and double fillets are present in the Turbo and Turbo S Cabriolet. Apart from the revised tail lamps at the rear end, it broadly remains unchanged.

The Carrera sisters too are powered by the same flat-six twin-turbo element which shakes out 370bhp and 420bhp in the Carrera Cabriolet and Carrera S respectively.
