What kind of Porsche is this?

I'm certainly no expert, but it looks like a Porsche of some type in this video. And the song is awesome anyway.

Billy Ocean - Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car - YouTube

It certainly appears to be a Porsche, but what kind, I have no idea.

You are joking right? Both about the song being awesome and about not knowing what kind of car it is?

Mr Obvious says it's a mid 80's 911 Turbo Cabriolet.

... identical to that one.
It was a 1987 932 (Turbo).
Mine had red interior and the steering wheel in the right place
Happy Porscheing,
Pedro

I though the 80s turbos only came in a hard top, and the Cabs were called "Turbo Look" when they added the wing?
