Porsche 911 Targa 4 Sees Light of Day

Porsche continues its onslaught of trim levels for the recently redesigned 911 with two new glass-roofed models called the 911 Targa 4 and the Targa 4S. The Targa designation has been used for the better part of three decades to designate a Porsche with a solid glass canopy.

The glass panel over the driver’s side slides back in less than seven seconds at any speed to deliver a large sunroof/convertible effect. The rear cargo door is also made of glass to continue the large-greenhouse look. Power is the same as in the standard 911 lineup with the standard 325-hp engine in the base model and a 355-hp engine in the S trim.

Both the Targa 4, priced at $85,700, and the Targa 4S, priced at $95,900, go on sale in November. Porsche considers these an alternative for those who don’t want to make the leap to a convertible but still want the feel of open-air driving. We see them more as a way for a Porsche-coupe buyer to differentiate themselves from the pack.
