Porsche loves to take their time between unveiling variants. Even though the 992-generation 911 has been out and about for some time, the automaker didn't immediately introduce every single possible variant that will exist for the remainder of the generation's life. Instead, it's trickled out new models here and there. this time, Porsche unveiled the new 992 Targa and Targa 4s.
Unveiled online because the 2020 Beijing Motor Show got canceled due to COVID-19, the Targa makes its entrance on the Carrera 4 and 4S models. It features a retractable roof above the front seats and a characteristic wraparound rear window. The roll bar for this generation is silver as standard and also available in black. If I had the money to get one of these, the roll bar color will surely be the toughest decision apart from the fact that I would be dropping at least $120,000 for a Targa 4 or $136,000 for a Targa 4s
The Targa’s roll bar etched its way into the books of historical design and timeless beauty. And with the highly innovative, fully automatic roof system now in its seventh generation, Porsche has iced the cake with a dollop of engineering. The roll bar itself is adorned with the Targa logo under the side gills and enjoys a graceful rounded rear screen.
The interiors in Porsches have always been great, this generation of screen infested interiors doesn't look overwhelming or even highly futuristic. Overall it projects a great package, its sporty, and its comfortable. Whether it’s leather or Alcantara, all the materials are exquisite and puristic.
both the Targa 4 and the 4s are powered by the same twin-turbo 3.0 flat-six that comes in the standard 992-gen Porsche 911 Carrera and Carrera S.
the Targa 4 produces 379 bhp and 331 lb-ft of torque while the sportier Targa 4s producers 443 bhp and 390 lb-ft of torque. both come with an eight-speed PDK as standard but the 4s can be fitted with a seven-speed manual transmission for free, yes for free. That is an option I'm definitely going to take, especially because it is free!
