The new semi-convertible Porsche 911 Targa has just made its world debut and without doubt, it is more stunning and has more advanced features as compared to its predecessors. Its state-of-the-art features, compact size, eye catching beauty, and comfort make it suitable for businessmen, leisure travellers, and small families.
One of the most amazing features of the new Porsche 911 Targa is its retractable roof. At the touch of a button, the wrap-around rear glass window lifts up and tilts backward, revealing a spacious roof storage compartment behind the cosy seats. Meanwhile, the fabric roof panel slowly detaches itself from windscreen and folds backward into Z-shape before stowing behind the seats. After that, the rear glass window returns to its original position, leaving most of Porsche 911 Targa’s profile intact and the space above occupants open for the circulation of fresh air. The whole process takes only takes only 19 seconds and can only be done when the car is stationary.
Aside from the roof, the new Porsche 911 Tagra also boasts of round headlights, and accentuated front and rear wings. The wide front rack creates a particularly dynamic front view. At the rear, the slim LED taillights help to accentuate the horizontal contouring while the stainless steel tailpipes are unmistakably elegant.
Available colours of the new Porsche 911 Targa include black, speed yellow, basalt black metallic, meteor grey metallic, midnight blue metallic, forest green metallic, slate grey metallic, and dark olive metallic. Other colours include cobalt blue metallic, lapis blue metallic, silver, Carrara white, and Arctic grey metallic.
The predominantly sporty interior is successfully combined with a classic layout and numerous modern features. The ascending centre console’s sophisticated ergonomic design utilises an easy-to-understand logic for its controls such as those for operating the roof and adjusting the two-zone air conditioning system. The dashboard features a high-resolution 4.6-inch LED screen that displays navigation instructions and information from the adaptive cruise control. The door-closing handles, armrests, sections of the seats, and the steering wheel rim are covered with protective leather.
For entertainment, the car is equipped with Burmester High-End Surround Sound System. The system has 12 amplifier channels, 12 loudspeakers, and a total diaphragm surface area of more than 1,200 cm2.
The new Porsche 911 Targa is can be powered by either a 3.6-litre engine with a new VarioCam plus valve-timing system that helps deliver a total of 350 horsepower or a 3.8-litre engine with an output of 400 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque.
