Fourth-generation Porsche 911 Targa brings third Porsche 992-series body style and hits Australian showrooms in September!
The latest car news, Porsche has completed the iconic Porsche 911 sports car set to be enjoyed during the good weather. Following on from the Coupé Porsche and Cabriolet Porsche, the third car body type variant of the new Porsche 911 generations now makes its debut with the Porsche 911 Targa 4 and Porsche 911 Targa 4S models. The new Porsche Targa continues with its legacy of merging the fun of the open-air driving of a convertible car and the comfort of a Coupé car – while maintaining its one of a kind style of a hybrid model car.
Porsche 911 Targa Power & Engine:
Both Porsche Targa models are powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbo flat-six boxer engine generating 283kW in the standard Porsche Targa 4, 11kW more than the previous Targa model and 331kW for the Porsche Targa 4S, 22kW more than its predecessor.

The top speed for this sport car is clocked in at 289km/h and 304km/h respectively. The Porsche Targa is an All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with Traction Management system. However, there is no manual transmission available for the Australian market.
Porsche 911 Targa Interior Vibes & Features:
The distinguishing car feature of the Porsche Targa remains to be its innovative, fully automatic all glass roof system and just like the legendary original Porsche Targa model from 1965, it features a distinctive large roll hoop, a removable glass top section above the driver and the passenger seats and a surrounding glass rear window. Porsche continues to innovate where you can open and close the roof in the new Porsche Targa in just 19 seconds.
This sport car model will come with extra standard equipment such as:
– Surround View
– Lane Change Assist
– Comfort Access
– Heated Seats
– BOSE Surround Sound system
– LED headlights
– Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus
Amid the common extra option selection you can include the Smartlift function which lifts the Porsche to increases the front ground clearance.
The inside echoes the Porsche 911 Carrera models and is characterised by the clear and straight lines of its dashboard and its recessed instruments. The Porsche 911 models from the 1970s inspired the design here. Alongside the central rev counter – very much a defining feature for Porsche – two thin, frameless freeform displays provide information for the driver. Beneath the Porsche Communication Management system which is operated in the 10.9-inch screen you have five buttons in a switch unit to give you a direct access to the sport car functions. The PCM includes Apple CarPlay and online navigation system.
Porsche 911 Targa Exterior:
The Porsche 911 Targa exterior design is characterised by the styling of its 992 model generation. When you compare the new Porsche Targa model to its predecessors, its car body stylehas more noticeable wheel covers at the front and between its LED headlights. The extended rear spoiler gives this new sport car a wider look which is flawlessly united with the light bar. All the outer skin of the new Porsche Targa is made from aluminium except for the front and rear sections.
The Porsche Targa has become so unique – no other sport car comes close to its distinctive car glass roof and iconic design. The Porsche 911 Targa remains AWD only.
