A picture of the Porsche 911 Targa has leaked onto the web, just days
ahead of its official reveal at the Detroit Motor Show next week.
Designed to sit between the 911 Coupe and 911 Cabriolet, the Targa is
aimed at those who want an open-top 911 without the full-blown cabriolet
Porsche’s designers have clearly taken their inspiration from the
original 1960s Targa, with a wraparound rear windscreen and a bar that
runs up the sides and across the top of the roof. It’s believed the
missing roof section will retract electrically at the touch of a button.
There’s no word on which engines will be available, but the choice is
likely to mirror the Coupe and Cabriolet with a 345bhp 3.4-litre
flat-six in the Targa and a 394bhp 3.8-litre in the Targa S. Expect
pricing to fall somewhere between the Coupe and Cabriolet, too.
We’ll bring you a full gallery of pictures and all the details on the
new 911 Targa once it makes its debut in Detroit next Monday. For more details click here.
