Yesterday we saw some leaked photos of the new 2014 Porsche 911 Targa, Porsche has now made their latest 911 official and it will come in two models as we mentioned previously.
Porsche will launch the Porsche 911 Targa and the 911 Targa S, according to Porsche, these are the first models to combine the classic Targa concept with cutting edge, innovative roof technology.
At the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, Porsche is introducing two new models to the 911 range: the 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S. These models are the first to combine the classic Targa concept with cutting edge, innovative roof technology.
Just like the legendary original 911 Targa of 1965, the new models feature the distinctive Targa roof bar, a movable front roof section, and a wraparound rear window. But unlike the classic 911 Targa, the roof segment can be opened and closed at the push of a button. The fully automatic roof system stows the Targa top behind the rear seats.
Both of these new models come in an AWD (all wheel drive) version, the 911 Targa comes with a 3.4 Liter 6 cylinder engine with 350 HP, it has a 0 to 60 MPH time of just 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 174 MPH, or 175 MPH with the manual transmission.
The Porsche 911 Targa comes with a 3.8 liter horizontally opposed 6 cylinder engine that pumps out 400 HP, it has a 0 to 60 time of 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 183 MPH.
The new 911 Targa will go on sale in the US this summer, the Porsche 911 Targa will retail for $101,600 and the Porsche 911 Targa S will retail for $116,200.
