The Targa variant of the Porsche 911 needs no introduction, it is the in-between model for those who can’t choose between the coupe or convertible.
The 911 Targa will be offered in two variants, the 911 Targa 4 and 4S. Both the Targas will be powered by the 3.0-litre flat-six turbocharged boxer engine sending power to all four wheels through an 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The 911 Targa 4 produces 380 bhp, whereas the Targa 4S takes it a notch higher with 444 bhp on tap.
The complex soft-top mechanism takes 19 seconds to go from fully closed to open, thanks to more powerful actuators. You can only operate the mechanism at a standstill though. Porsche even makes use of its rear parking sensors, lest that beautiful glass clamshell strike something.
