2014 Detroit Motor Show: Porsche 911 Targa goes topless

2014 Detroit Motor Show: Porsche 911 Targa goes topless

The 2015 Porsche 911 Targa was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show yesterday, confirming all the rumours and spy pictures which have been doing rounds of the Internet for a while now. Based on the 2014 Porsche 911 which was unveiled last year, the new model harks back to the original 1965 Targa design. 

As opposed to a sliding glass roof the previous version had, the roof section in the two-seater can be opened or closed automatically in just 19 seconds, but only when the car is stationary. The Targa top is stowed behind the seats when not in use and can be retracted easily with the push of a button. A soft top and glass rear window each, form part of the mechanism. Lightweight fabric and a magnesium frame ensure that the weight is kept low. 

There aren’t many changes to the interior except for a manually-operated wind deflector on the windshield frame, Alcantara-lined Targa bar and a wrap-around rear window. 

The 911 Targa will go on sale later in the year starting at USD 101,600 (Rs 62.4 lakh) for the Targa 4 and USD 116,200 (Rs 71.4 lakh) for the 911 Targa 4S variant. While the Targa 4 has a 350-horsepower, 3.4-litre flat-six engine, the Targa 4S is powered by a 3.8-litre six-cylinder boxer unit producing 400bhp. Both of these are four-wheel-drive cars available with either a seven-speed manual or a PDK double-clutch gearbox.
