For maximum driving pleasure, both sports cars are fitted as standard with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK) and Porsche Traction Management (PTM) intelligent all-wheel drive. Alternatively, the 911 Targa 4S variant can be ordered with a new 7-speed manual transmission, which is available in conjunction with the Sport Chrono package. Both models also offer new technical solutions that expand the vehicle's feature set; Porsche InnoDrive with adaptive cruise control is available for the first time. The advanced Smartlift feature allows the ride height to be programmed for daily use. The list of options is completed by the extensive Porsche Tequipment package and new personalization options from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. Porsche will further enhance the combination of traditional elements, timeless design and state-of-the-art technology in the special edition 911 Targa, which will debut very soon.

Efficient biturbo boxer engine

Like the 911 Carrera, both variants of the 911 Targa benefit from an increase in power from the turbocharged 3-litre 6-cylinder engine. As a result, the devices provide both improved performance and everyday usability. The 911 Targa 4 engine delivers 283 kW (385 hp) at 6500 rpm, 11 kW (15 hp) more than the previous model. Peak torque of 450 Nm is generated over a wide engine speed range from 1950 to 5000 rpm. At 331 kW (450 hp) the 911 Targa 4S is 22 kW (30 hp) more than its predecessor and generates a maximum torque of 530 Nm (+30 Nm) from 2300 to 5000 rpm. min.

Optimized all-wheel drive for better traction

The improved performance of the new four-wheel drive variants goes hand in hand with the further development of the front axle drive. The clutch and differential unit is water-cooled and has reinforced clutch discs for increased durability and the ability to handle higher loads. The increased working torque on the clutch improves the accuracy of its adjustment and the operation of the additional drive of the front axle. Overall, the improved front axle drive with PTM (Porsche Traction Management) contributes to even better traction in all road conditions.

Additional modified chassis - more comfort and safety

The electronically controlled PASM (Porsche Active Suspension Management) adaptive damping system is standard on the new 911 Targa variants. The system automatically adjusts the damping characteristics to suit any driving and driving situation in terms of driving comfort. At the same time, it offers two manual map selections: Normal and Sports. Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus), including an electronic differential lock with fully variable torque distribution, is standard on the 911 Targa 4S and is available as an option on the 911 Targa 4. Like other eighth-generation Porsche 911 variants, Targa variants are also available with Porsche Wet mode as standard. Sensors installed in the front wheel arches are able to detect water accumulated on the pavement, and if a significant amount of water “splashes” on them, a message appears on the instrument panel prompting the driver to manually switch to Wet mode. When activated, the drive response adapts to the conditions to guarantee maximum stability.

The interior of the 911 Carrera is characterized by the clean, straight lines of the instrument panel and recessed instruments. Here the inspiration was the 911 models of the 1970s. In addition to the centrally located tachometer, a key Porsche hallmark, there are two slim, free-form bezel-less displays that enrich the range of information provided to the driver. Beneath the 10.9-inch Porsche Communication Management (PCM) center screen is a compact five-button module that provides direct access to key vehicle functions. The standard list of PCM system features includes online navigation using distributed data, as well as the Connect Plus module.

The model that gave rise to a new class of sports cars - since 1965.

The 1965 Porsche 911 Targa 2.0 pioneered an entirely new type of car. Initially marketed as a "safe rollover convertible" with a removable roof, the Targa soon became an independent concept and a true style icon. To this day, Porsche combines two worlds in the 911 Targa: the typical benefits of open-air cabriolet driving and the everyday comfort and safety of a coupé.


New variants of the Porsche 911 Targa will be on the market from August 2020. Prices start from 635 thousand rubles. c.u. (4 c.u. = 1 USD) for 911 Targa 4 and from 710 thousand PLN for 911 Targa 4S.
