Porsche 911 Targa unveiled, on sale from $275800

Porsche 911 Targa unveiled, on sale from $275800”

Porsche has unveiled the latest 992-Series 911 variant, the open-topped Targa.

The new 911 Targa takes up where the last generation model left off - with a fully automatic system that stows the hardtop roof panel behind the rear seats. The Targa 4 develops 283kW at 6,500rpm and 450Nm of torque between 1,950 and 5,000rpm.

In the 911 Targa 4S, the boxer unit's peak outputs rise to 331 kW and 530 N.m, with the latter on tap from 2 300 to 5 000 r/min. Tick the optional Sport Chrono box and the PDK-equipped variant will hit three figures in a claimed 3,6 seconds, before topping out at a heady 304 km/h. The engine in the 911 Targa 4S puts out 443 hp and reaches the 60 miles per hour mark in just 3.4 seconds with PDK and the optional Sport Chrono Package - four tenths quicker than its predecessor.

The Porsche 911 Targa 4 gets 19-inch wheels and 20-inch wheels at the front and back respectively while the Targa 4S variants feature 20-inch wheels at the front and 21-inch wheels at the back. Alternatively, the 911 Targa 4S can be ordered with a seven-speed manual transmission at no charge, which includes the Sport Chrono package as standard.

Porsche reveals the new 911 Targa, exclusively available with all-wheel drive

Porsche's electronically controlled variable damping system ships standard, while an electronic rear differential lock (with fully variable torque distribution) is included on the Targa 4S (note the manual version gains a mechanical item) and optional on the Targa 4.

The Porsche 911 lineup in India now only consists of the rear-wheel drive Carrera and Carrera S in coupe and cabriolet body styles, but we expect the Targa models to be priced on par with the Carrera 4/4S models as and when launched. Brakes on the Targa 4 are 330mm rotors with four-piston fixed monobloc callipers, growing to a 350mm six-piston/four-piston setup front-rear on the Targa 4S – with red callipers calling out the extra power of the model, in both acceleration and deceleration. Of course, the roll bar in the middle is the biggest tell-tale sign of all, in either silver or black trim with the "Targa" emblem on either side. The exterior of the 911 Targa is characterised by the design elements of its 992 model generation. Compared to its predecessors, its body features significantly more pronounced wheel housings at the front and, between its LED headlights, its front luggage compartment lid has a distinctive recess evoking the design of earlier 911 generations. Its rear is dominated by its wider, variably extending rear spoiler and seamlessly integrated, elegant light bar. Likewise, staggered wheel sizes front-to-rear make sure the new Targa sits on its wheels more aggressively than the previous Targa.

Inside, the new Porsche 911 Targa is adorned with the traditional centrally positioned tachometer, flanked by two frameless, free-form displays that provide additional information in the form of an instrument console. Five toggle switches providing direct access to important vehicle functions are located below the 10.9-inch center screen of the Porsche Communication Management (PCM). The standard PCM features include online navigation based on swarm data as well as Connect Plus with Apple Car Play. MSRP is $119,300 for the 2021 911 Targa 4 and $135,200 for the 2021 911 Targa 4S, not including a $1,350 delivery, processing and handling fee.
