The German automaker introduced the Porsche 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S.
After the coupe and cabriolet, the third body type of the new generation 911 will debut with all-wheel-drive models 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S. An innovative, fully automatic roof system remains the hallmark of the new products, and, like the legendary original 1965 Targa model, they feature a distinctive Targa bar, a retractable roof section above the front seats, and a rounded rear window. The roof can be automatically opened and closed in just 19 seconds at the touch of a button.
Both models feature an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox (PDK) and intelligent all-wheel drive Porsche Traction Management (PTM) as standard. In addition, the 911 Targa 4S can be ordered with a seven-speed manual transmission, which includes the standard Sport Chrono package.
Both of the 911 Targa models are equipped with a boxer, six-cylinder, three-liter twin-turbo engine: now the 911 Targa 4 develops 385 hp. and accelerates from zero to 100 km / h in just 4.2 seconds with the PDK and optional Sport Chrono package. The engine in the 911 Targa 4S develops 450 hp. and reaches 100 km / h in just 3.6 seconds with the PDK and optional Sport Chrono package. The maximum speed of the new 911 Targa 4 is 289 km / h, and 4S – 304 km / h.
The new models are equipped with PASM adaptive suspension (Porsche Active Suspension Management), an electronically controlled rear differential (for Targa 4 for an extra charge), sensors in the wheel arches that determine the degree of humidity of the road surface, monoblock four-piston brakes with a fixed bracket and 330 mm discs (for Targa 4S on the front axle – six-piston and 350 mm discs in a circle).
The interior corresponds to the 911 Carrera models, the main tone here is set by clear and straight lines of the front panel with recessed devices. There is a PCM multimedia system with a 10.9-inch screen, navigation and Apple Car Play.
Externally, the novelty is distinguished by more pronounced wings, characteristic stampings on the front cover, a solid LED strip at the back. There is a retractable adaptive spoiler.
