It’s Saturday morning, the wind is kicking up but it’s not crazy, the sun is out but it’s not insanely hot outside. You know you have a few hours to get out before the backroads become packed with weekenders and ruin a spirited drive. With the toggle of a switch and 19 seconds of transformer-like articulation the Targa roof of your jet black 911 recedes into the rear of the car. In under 20 seconds your hardtop 911 morphs into the hair-frazzling fun machine you know and love. With sport mode activated and your right foot ready, you race the sunrise up your favorite backroad with a smile on your face.
This Targa 4 shows off how far Porsche has come since the plastic zip-up rear window cars of the sixties. With a seamless Targa design and easy functionality, it leaves very little effort between you and open-air motoring. The car caters to the most indecisive of individuals, because you can have all the benefits of a solid roof car (noise, safety, rigidity) and all the allure and joy of a drop-top.
This particular certified pre-owned Porsche is optioned with Jet Black metallic paint and a Bordeaux Red interior, power 14-way sport seats, Sport Chrono package, Bose sound, lane change assist and a host of other options to keep everything convenient and comfortable whether the top is up or down. In terms of power, you’ll be unleashing 370 horsepower from the twin-turbo flat-six through a 7-speed PDK gearbox. We can hear all of you 3 pedal devotees out there crying already, wipe your tears because with sport mode enabled, Porsche launch control will shoot you to 60mph in 4.7 seconds.
Biases aside, no matter how you experience a Porsche 911 we can almost guarantee that a Targa will give you a damn good combination of both worlds and the best all-around experience with this selection of options and features.
So, come drive it!
