2015 Porsche 911 Targa Redesigned “Pop Top”

You may be familiar with the Porsche 911 Targa, available at Porsche of Tucson, but this is a side of it that you’ve never seen before. Porsche has added a magnificent redesigned glass pop top. Already, the Porsche 911 Targa has been called “a work of mechanical wizardry” and “a symphony of gently humming electric motors.” The Targa was inspired by the Carrera 4 convertible’s aluminum body which is why the 2015 911 Targa is only available in brushed aluminum. Without a doubt, what attracts the most attention is the beautiful roof that represents engineering art.

Not only is the pop top roof visually appealing but it is durable and reliable and can handle dramatic speeds while out on the road. Because of the roof, the Targa is 90 kilograms heavier than the coupe yet feels weightless to the driver. The rear window is made from layered, lightweight, laminated glass that lifts on steel legs and is moved out of the way simply with the push of a button. With the same push of that magic button, the engine lid also moves down and stows behind the rear seats. To get everything into the correct place from the first button push takes as little as 19 seconds. However, the car must be stopped and put in “park” in order to do so.

The exterior of the 2015 Porsche 911 Targa reminds people of classic Targas, particularly the model that was built in ’67. The vehicle can fit up to two people comfortably for the ride of their life. There are fewer center-console buttons than usual in order to give the driver more comfort and simplicity.

The engine is definitely something else to talk about. The 3.4-liter flat six produces a maximum of 350 hp while the S model uses a 400-hp 3.8 liter. The car has a top track speed of 175 mph and can also go from 0-60 mph from 4.2-5.0 seconds. The speed is dependent on the engine size and the transmission.  With the “Sports Mode” the PDK’s shifts and throttle response quickens immediately.
