Last week, पोर्श completed the core 911 line-up with the introduction of the Targa. Today, the German carmaker has taken the wraps off the 992-gen Targa Heritage Edition paying homage to the original 911 Targa. Limited to just 992 units, here is a detailed look at the new 911 Targa Heritage Edition through pictures.
The Heritage Edition features many design details which are reminiscent of the classic Porsches from the 1950s and 1960s. It is the first of four Heritage models planned.
Crafted by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, the paintwork of Cherry Metallic (of the four paint options) are authentic 1950’s. That, along with white livery makes it very retro.
The spear-shaped graphic harks back to the early days of Porsche Motorsports. The Heritage badge on the deck is a tribute to Porsche 356 which clocked one lakh kilometres.
Porsche has used their original 1963 crest on the boot lid, steering wheel, hub cover, headrest and on the keys. The 21-inch Carrera Exclusive alloys are drop-dead gorgeous.
Customers can opt for the two-tone leather in two combination – Bordeaux Red leather with OLEA leather in Atacama Beige or Black leather with OLEA leather in Atacama Beige.
Meanwhile, seats are wrapped in corduroy and the same material is used on door trims as they were used on the 1950s 356; while the Sport Chono Package adds modernity.
A metal badge on the dashboard displays the individual limited edition number of 992 models made. Other Exclusive Manufaktur elements are present as well.
Based on the 2021 Targa 4S, the Heritage Edition is powered by the same 3.0-litre turbo-boxer engine producing 440bhp and mated to an eight-speed DCT automatic.
The Sport Chrono pack allows it to do the 0-100kmph sprint in just 3.4 seconds and hit the limiter of 302kmph. Porsche is also offering a seven-speed manual as an option.
Asking price for the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition is 180,600 dollars (approx. Rs 1.36 crore) in the US. Deliveries are slated to take place later this year.
What’s more, some elements of the Heritage Design package will also be available on standard 911. We’ll have those 21-inch Porsche Fuchs alloy wheels, thank you very much.
