Sometimes you just need to let your inhibitions go and allow your passion and emotion to take over. That’s exactly what Porsche have done by creating the 911 Targa. When pressed for a reason on exactly why Porsche was reviving the classic targa shape when there’s a perfectly good cabriolet in the 911 range, one senior Porsche official replied: “Why not?” With its ultra-sleek lines and unmistakeable Sixties aura, the 911 Targa 4 is the king of kerb appeal. Not just nice to look at, the flat-six, rear-mounted turbo engine provides that charismatic 911 punch and the 4-wheel-drive forges a beautiful connection between driver and road. Simply put: the 911 Targa is Porsche’s gift to the motoring world.Book Your Test Drive
With four-wheel-steer technology and stylish rollbar, the Targa 4S offers more than just great looks.
Yet again, everything comes back into play. It's about a new benchmark. A sports car that has only ever existed once in this form. That has been a source of fascination for generations. And is firmly anchored in our heart and soul. It's about the future of the 911. We are always looking forward. Not sideways, never back. We don't want to rest on the laurels of our past, no matter how illustrious it may be. All the racing victories. The dreams. Our fans. Thousands of ideas. We hold them in our hearts. But we start from scratch. And we will give everything we've got. We will go on the attack, to get even better. And we will fight, to defend our lead. With one single goal: to create the next 911, one that can do more, deliver more and consume less than ever before. A sports car as beautiful now as it was on day one. That is our tradition. And our future. We will give it our all. For the best 911 of all times: the new 911.
At Porsche, there are no conventions. Forbidding free thought? That's forbidden. The only thing that matters is this question: how can we become even better? Let's put it another way: can we redefine the limits of engineering? Can we reconcile apparent contradictions? Yes, we can. With Intelligent Performance. The new 911 answers questions about the future of the sports car with a quantum leap in performance. By reducing fuel consumption, but not by suppressing emotions. By following a principle that has already changed everything once before: in 1974, with the first 911 Turbo. Developed completely from scratch, the six-cylinder twin-turbo engines of the 911 Carrera and Targa 4 models with a displacement of 3.0 litres embrace this principle and perfect it in a forwardlooking way. To be more precise: tremendous acceleration force even in the low rpm range is supplemented by the engine map of a 911 Carrera with the high rev limits typical of a sports car. In other words, high compression and a high engine speed combined with good modulation of power output and surprisingly low fuel consumption, thanks to the reduced overall displacement. Expressed in figures, this means an extra 15 kW (20 hp) of power, an extra 60 Nm of torque and engine speeds of up to 7,500 rpm. And a considerable reduction in fuel consumption of up to 13 %. The engine of the 911 Carrera and 911 Targa 4 models develops 272 kW (370 hp). The maximum torque of 450 Nm is available from as low as 1,700 rpm. With Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), the 911 Carrera can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in only 4.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 293 km/h. The propulsive potential of the engine in the S models, featuring upsized turbochargers and independent exhaust system, is even more impressive. It generates a power output of 309 kW (420 hp) and the maximum torque is a mighty 500 Nm, available from as low as 1,700 rpm. With Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and Launch Control, the 911 Carrera S sprints to 100 km/h in a mere 3.9 seconds. Top speed isn't reached until 306 km/h. What cannot be expressed in figures: the legendary sound of a 911 six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine. And the experience is all the more intense for it. The stand-out qualities of the new twinturbo engines are their extraordinarily direct responsiveness and wide torque plateau, reached early in the low end of the rpm band. Combined with the high rev limit - and the legendary sound of a 911 six-cylinder horizontally opposed engine. In short: excellent performance that feeds back to the driver in an instant.
The chassis of the 911 Turbo models enables smooth high-speed manoeuvres. The car offers exceptionally high levels of stability. And cornering agility. Large 20-inch wheels play their part. The rearaxle cross member made of aluminium is new - for an additional reduction in weight.
The driver must always know how to get ahead, without ever losing sight of the bigger picture. For this reason, everything in the interior is geared towards looking forward: to the car in front, to the next corner, to the next driving manoeuvre. That's possible only when synergies are created between engineering and design, and sportiness and comfort. Proof: the new sports steering wheel with its puristic design and excellent ergonomics. More proof: the ascending centre console. The principle they share: putting the driver first. The same applies to the suspension settings and the two-zone air conditioning system. There shouldn't be any need to spend too long browsing one submenu after another. You should instead be able to concentrate on what's important: driving pleasure. Five round instruments make a sporty contribution. Their primary purpose is to provide information. They do so efficiently and accurately. And their styling is typically Porsche, with the rev counter exactly where you would expect it to be: in the middle. Technology to help you along the way is integrated as standard: new Porsche Communication Management (PCM) including navigation module plus 7-inch multi-touchscreen. Thanks to the Connect Plus module, PCM is also your gateway to the digital world. From pioneering technology to sporty comfort. Whether it's leather or AlcantaraÂ, all the materials we use are exquisite and puristic. In addition to the choice of Agate Grey, Black and Luxor Beige* for the interior, there is a wide range of other personalisation options available, including two-tone colour combinations or special colours and materials such as carbon, aluminium and high-quality wood.*Glass is reflective. Certain lighting conditions may cause this colour dashboard to produce a noticeable reflection on the inside of the windscreen. To make certain that you are satisfied with your selection, ask your Porsche Centre to arrange for a test drive experience.
