Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the original 911 Targa, Porsche has confirmed the current 991-generation 911 GTS will receive the same treatment as its Carrera S and Carrera 4 brothers.
In addition to Porsche’s acrobatic electric Targa top, the 911 receives the usual GTS additions to separate it from lesser variations of the 911 range.
This includes 20-inch wheels, smoked bi-xenon headlights, a black intake grille and chrome plated exhaust tips. Inside, bespoke Alcantara and leather seats and a standard-fit Sport Chrono Pack confirm the car’s added sporting credentials.
The new Targa utilises power from the same 316kW flat-six (up 22kW from the standard Carrera S) to enable a 0-100km/h time of 4.3sec and top speed of 301km/h with the PDK ‘box (compared to 4.7sec and 303km/h with the standard seven-speed manual). Dynamic engine mounts and active suspension enhance the Targa GTS’s driving characteristics.
Australian prices for the Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS start from $305,300. Sales commence from the second quarter of 2015.
