All-New 2015 Porsche 911 Targa | Porsche 911 Targa: The World Premiere of a Modern Classic
This model is the first to combine the classic Targa concept with state-of-the-art roof technology. Just like the legendary original Targa model, the new model features the characteristic wide bar in place of the B-pillars, a movable roof section above the front seats and a wraparound rear window with no C-pillar.
But unlike the classic models, the roof segment on the new Targa can be opened and closed at the push of a button. When the button is actuated, the fully automatic roof system stows the convertible top behind the rear seat system, providing a real spectacle.
With these features, the new 911 Targa is presenting itself as a high-quality, innovative remake of the classic vehicle from 1965. The combination of the wide rear end that is typical of all-wheel drive models, the Targa bar and the dome-shaped rear window gives the latest 911 an extremely sporty appearance and a low-slung profile.
The 911 Targa 4 is powered by a 3.4-litre, 350 hp (257 kW) flat engine. Equipped with the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and Sport Chrono package, this model accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds and boasts a top speed of 282 km/h.
The top model is the 911 Targa 4S, which delivers 400 hp (294 kW) from a displacement of 3.8 litres. This model reaches a top speed of 296 km/h and, with the PDK and Sport Chrono package fitted, accelerates in 4.4 seconds. Both sports cars are certified for compliance with the Euro 6 emissions standard.
911 Targa: Urban fuel consumption 13.9 – 11.8 litres/100 km; extra-urban fuel consumption 7.7 – 6.9 litres/100 km; combined fuel consumption 10.0 – 8.7 litres/100 km; CO2 emissions 237 – 204 g/km; efficiency class: G, F**
