Since its introduction, the Porsche Targa has provided the ultimate pairing of performance and practicality among the world’s sports cars, a vehicle that can be driven daily on the road and enjoyed during weekends at track events. The seventh generation of the 911 demonstrates this in convincing fashion.
In short, the seventh-generation Porsche Targa is longer, lower, has a wider front track and is loaded with state-of-the-art features: a new rear axle design to improve dynamic precision and stability, a new electro-mechanical power steering system, Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV), enhanced Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and enhanced dynamic engine mount technology. The result raises the bar in driving dynamics with even more sure-footed tracking and roll stability.
The Porsche Targa continues to exemplify the automaker’s commitment to the Porsche Intelligent Performance philosophy – improved performance using less fuel with increased efficiency and reduced emissions. The new Targa models are a prime example of this. Powered by a new, highly efficient 3.0 liter twin turbo flat-six engine, they offer significantly more torque than their naturally aspirated predecessors, bringing performance to a higher level than ever before. A new PCM infotainment system offering significantly enhanced capabilities is another feature of these models.
