Porsche India announces arrival of the iconic 911 Targa

the classic Targa concept with highly advanced roof technology. The introduction of the modern classic in the
country marks the continued progression of the Porsche 911 family, as the new Targa 4 and 4S models join the
brand’s iconic product lineup.
The new 911 Targa sees the timeless design of the original model from 1965 and the contemporary sportiness
of the seventh 911 generation fused together in perfect synergy. The return to the original concept, with its
characteristic fixed Targa bar, breathes new life into the legend with its stateoftheart roof technology.
Anil Reddi, Director, Porsche India, says: “The 911 is a sports car which has won more races than any other
and, in this latest evolution, I believe it has never looked more spectacular. In the 911 Targa, we see the
ultimate in driving dynamics come together with stunning design and the very latest in groundbreaking roof
technology. The car’s arrival here in India signifies a new chapter in the legendary model’s evolution and I am
incredibly proud and excited to welcome it.”

movable roof section above the front seats and a wraparound rear window with no Cpillar. But unlike the classic

The power from the flatsix engines is transmitted by an automatic sevenspeed dualclutch transmission (PDK),
which is fitted as standard.
As with its predecessors, the new Targa generation comes in two versions available exclusively with allwheel
drive. The 911 Targa 4 is powered by a 3.4litre, 350 hp flat engine. When equipped with the optional Sport
Chrono package, this model accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds and boasts a top speed of
The top model is the 911 Targa 4S, which delivers 400 hp from a displacement of 3.8 litres. This model reaches
a top speed of 296 km/h and, when equipped with the optional Sport Chrono package, accelerates in just 4.4
seconds. The 911 Targa 4S can also be specified with the Carrera S Powerkit that boosts output by 30 hp.
Equipped with direct fuel injection, both engines are sporty high revving units and excel with exemplary fuel
economy. To increase efficiency, they feature electrical system recuperation, mapcontrolled thermal
