Like the legendary original 1965 design, the new models feature the distinctive Targa roof bar, a movable front roof section, and a wraparound rear window. Both models combine the classic Targa concept with cutting edge, innovative roof technology. The roof segment can be opened and closed in 19 seconds at the push of a button. The roof system stows the Targa top behind the rear seats.
The 911 Targa 4 is powered by a horizontally opposed 3.4-liter 6-cylinder engine with 350 bhp (261 kW). It will accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 4.6 seconds and is capable of a top speed of 174 mph (280 km/h) when equipped with the optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and Sport Chrono package. With manual transmission the top speed is increased to 175 mph (282 km/h).
The new models will go on sale this summer, the 2014 Porsche 911 Targa 4 priced at $101,600 whereas the 4S version begins at $116,200.
