New Porsche 911 Targa revealed-features and specification
The all-new Porsche 911 Targa had made its global debut online and is continuing its affair with the Targa roof design. The latest generation models are inspired by the legendary 1965 Targa.
The new 911 Targa takes up with all-wheel drive traction management and is available in 2 variants –Porsche 911 Targa 4 and 4s that stows the hardtop roof panel behind the rear seats. The cars get a fully automatic and detachable roof system that establishes itself as an independent concept and have become a style icon. This leaves the car’s characteristic central roll-over bar in place of the B-pillar behind the door.
The new 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S feature pronounced wheel arches at the front. The 911 Targa 4 gets 235/40 ZR tyres fitted around 19-inch alloy wheels on the front axle and 295/35 ZR tyres fitted around 20-inch wheels on the rear axle. The 4S model is wrapped with 245/35 ZR tyres on its 20-inch front wheels and 305/30 ZR tyres on its 21-inch rear wheels.
Along the central rev counter, it also features two thin, frameless freeform displays that provide lots of additional information to the driver. PCCB ceramic brakes are optional, but the latest five-button Porsche Communication Management (PCM) infotainment system located below the 10.9-inch touch-screen is standard. The PCM features include online navigation based on swarm data as well as Connect Plus. So, there’s the same wide tailgate and active spoiler, an identical pair of LED headlamps and a full-width LED rear light bar.
Under the bonnet of the Porsche 911 Targa 4 sits a 3.0-liter, six-cylinder boxer engine with twin turbochargers that produces 380bhp and is capable of sprinting from 0-100 kmph in just 4.2-seconds.
