2015 Porsche 911 Review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

Editor’s note: What follows is preliminary information about the 2015 Porsche 911 Targa. Check back later for full details.

In the continuing and endless list of variants of Porsche’s venerable 911 sports car, the Targa model has always been an interesting choice. Not quite a convertible, not quite a coupe, it features a fixed rear wraparound glass window and a retractable roof panel to open up the cabin.ExteriorThe new 911 Targa looks mostly like the coupe, but the retractable top that slides down into the rear window creates a different greenhouse. Gone is the sweeping oval window opening along the car’s side, interrupted now by a metal hoop that stretches over the car like a roll bar. It’s brushed metal and accompanied by a wraparound rear window that takes away some of the 911’s fluidic grace and replaces it with a more upright profile.

Press a button and the entire rear glass section lifts up to allow the roof panel to fold down behind the rear seats. Cargo room is unaffected, of course, as is the trunk up front; the 911 is a rear-engine sports car.InteriorThe passenger cabin of the 911 Targa is nearly identical to the coupe, with the exception of the aforementioned retractable top and wraparound rear window. It offers the same high-quality materials and construction, leather and real metal, and customization options that can add tens of thousands of dollars to the price tag.
Under the HoodThe Targa comes in two versions, and both feature standard all-wheel drive. The Targa 4 comes with a 3.4-liter boxer six-cylinder engine making 350 horsepower and 287 pounds-feet of torque, while the 4S ups that to a 3.8- liter boxer six that pumps out 400 hp and 325 pounds-feet of torque. Transmissions are a choice of a standard seven-speed manual or dual-clutch PDK automatic. With the PDK and optional Sport Chrono Package, Porsche says that the Targa 4 will do zero to 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, a time that drops to 4.2 seconds for the Targa 4S.

Both variants are expected to go on sale later this summer in the U.S. The starting price for the Targa 4 will be $102,595, while the Targa 4S will go for a cool $117,195, including destination fee.

Just gorgeous

What can you say about any 911? The one I test drove was the S. It’s just the perfect sports car. Light, just enough power to go fast, not overwhelming. Comfortable, quiet, composed at any speed. The soft top is so quiet. Almost like a regular top. With the top down, you can still hold a somewhat normal conversation at highway speeds. Just the perfect car for a cruise or fast run on a sunny day.

2015 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S is an absolute gem!

The 991 series of the 911 platform is one of their best ever. This car is a joy to drive. I did not think that I could leave the manual 6 speed of the 996 series but the PDK transmission has exceeded expectations!

Best car I have ever driven by far!!!

Super fun to drive. Definitely a head turner , and for a two door sports car pretty comfortable!!! And when I put the roof down it’s even funner to drive. First time owning a European sports car but after driving a Porsche, I am hooked!!!
