- Targa Removable Roof Body Style originated in 1967, used throughout 911 history
The Targa has been a staple in the 911 lineup since 1967. With news of upcoming U.S. rollover laws, Porsche put a unique roll hoop on the 911 Cabriolet anticipating a ban on standard convertibles. Since the US was an important convertible market, the Targa was the solution to provide rollover protection. These regulations didn't come to pass as expected, but the model was an unexpected success. The name Targa came from Porsche’s success in racing at the Targa Florio road race in Sicily. It has been offered on and off throughout 911 history, later moving to a complex automated roof removal process starting with the 993 body style.
This is the most recent version of the Targa. Our car is in a Jet Black Metallic with Espresso Natural Leather interior. The engine is a 3.0 flat-six engine with 450 horsepower and 405 lbs/ft. Power is sent through a 7-Speed PDK Automatic gearbox, spreading the power to all four wheels. As for wheels, they are an RS Spyder design 20 inches in diameter. Options include Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes, Front Axle Lift, 18-Way power sports seats, as well as the Exclusive Manufaktur package. The Targa top removal process is fully automatic, taking less than 30 seconds, with the entire rear bodywork left off the back of the vehicle. In fact, the rear windshield has to be removed to access fluids typically accessed underneath the engine cover.
This unique 911 is now part of the growing Porsche division of the American Muscle Car Museum, now with over 25 Porsches in the collection.
