The thrill of al fresco motoring with the surety of fixed pillars. Porsche‘s classic 911 Targa was conceived to offer that combination, in a stylish and spirited package. After a long absence the moniker makes a return, in the latest 911 generation.
Like the classic model, it boasts a wraparound rear window and a single-piece roof. But there are no fiddly removals and tricky storage issues once you’ve dropped the top. It’s fully automated and folds itself snugly behind the rear seats.
The Targa is only available in all-wheel drive. Power comes from a 3.4-litre boxer engine with six cylinders (258kW) and when paired with the double-clutch, semi-automatic PDK transmission it’ll go from standstill to 100km/h in about 4.6 seconds. Pricing and arrival dates for the South African market have yet to be announced.
