2014 Porsche Targa Coming this Summer

Porsche Targa

The new-generation 911 Porsche Targa recently made its world debut and represents the return to the original 1965 design. When viewed from the front, the new 911 Targa looks basically identical to any other 911 Carrera model, but things change a bit when you move to the side. From the profile, you will immediately see all of the styling from the original Targa model launched in 1965, thanks to its roof bar, a movable front roof section and a wraparound rear window. The roof panel allows for fresh air is just a button push and 19 seconds away. The folded Targa top nestles nicely into a storage compartment behind the rear seats.

Available at Porsche dealerships this summer, the new 911 Targa is offered in two configurations: 4 and 4S. According to Porsche, the new 911 Targa’s performance is set to match that of the current 911 Carrera and Cabriolets. The 911 Targa 4 is expected to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.0 seconds with either the seven-speed manual or PDK selected, with that time dropping to 4.8 seconds on PDK-equipped cars with the Sport Chrono package. The 911 Targa 4S will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds with the manual, or 4.4 seconds with the PDK. Zero to sixty performance will improve to 4.2 seconds with the Sport Chrono box checked. Top speed for the 911 Targa 4 is 174 mph with the PDK, or 175 mph with the manual. The 911 Targa 4S is limited to 182 mph with the PDK, or 183 mph with the manual.

Both 911 Targa models exclusively come in AWD version, featuring the wider rear track and body, and the same Porsche Traction Management, found in all 911 all-wheel-drive models. It is an active all-wheel-drive system that helps to ensure the optimal distribution of drive power for optimum traction in most road scenarios, whether on long straights, through tight corners, or on surfaces with different friction coefficients. The combination of the wide body, the Targa bar, and the wraparound rear window results in an extremely sporty and low-slung profile.
