The new 911 Targa personifies elegance, maintaining the stylish design cues from the 1965 original, whilst bringing the Targa story right up to date.
The new generation of the Targa 4 and Targa 4S models provide increased performance, dynamic handling and limitless driving pleasure.
As with all previous Targa models, it provides the open-top driving experience of a cabriolet paired with the sleek convenience of a coupé. With the iconic Targa roll-over hoop and elegant deployable wraparound glass rear section, the latest 911 Targa models combine all of the dynamic prowess and technology of the eighth generation 911 with the timeless design of the original classic 911 Targa models from the 1960’s.
Power for the Targa models is true to the Porsche 911 tradition in its use of a charismatic flat-six, rear-mounted engine. Like its Coupé and Cabriolet siblings, the new 911 Targa models use a 3.0-litre flat-six engine with twin turbochargers. With the 911 Targa 4 delivering 385 PS and the 911 Targa 4S offering 450 PS, with 0-62 mph in just 3.6 seconds.
The exterior of the 911 Targa is characterised by the design elements of the latest 911 model generation. Compared to the prior model, the familiar 911 silhouette has evolved and the nose features more pronounced front wheel arches incorporating rounded, LED headlights and the bonnet has a distinctive recess evoking the design of the earliest 911 generations. A variably extending rear spoiler and integrated light bar brings further distinction to the tail. With the exception of the front and rear sections, the entire outer skin is aluminium.
The interior of the Targa echoes the 911 Carrera models and is characterised by the clear, straight-lined design language of its dashboard and recessed instruments. The 911 models from the 1970s provided the inspiration here. Alongside the central rev counter – very much a defining feature for Porsche – two thin, frameless freeform displays extend information to the driver. A compact switch unit with five buttons for direct access to important vehicle functions is located below the 10.9-inch centre screen of the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with online navigation.
