2021 Porsche 911 Targa officially unveiled

The Targa makes its entrance on the Carrera 4 and 4S models.It features a retractable roof above the front seats and a characteristic wraparound rear window. The roll bar for this generation is silver as standard, and also available in black. We’d have trouble deciding between the two, but would probably ultimately land on whatever accentuated it the most against whatever paint color we chose.
Targa roof uses two flat magnesium pieces holding the fabric roof together. At the press of a button, the roof automatically retracts into its storage compartment in the rear in a process that takes 19 seconds. To further distinguish the Targa from its coupe and convertible counterparts, it also gets exaggerated wheel housings, a wider rear spoiler and an indent up front between the lights on the frunk.
The Targa is similar to its coupe and convertible counterparts. The Targa 4 is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo boxer-six making 379 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque, while the 4S ups that to 443 hp and 390 lb-ft. They each employ an eight-speed PDK transmission, while the 4S offers a seven-speed manual as a no-cost option. The Targa 4, when equipped with the Sport Chrono package, will do the 0-60 sprint in 4.0 seconds, with a top speed of 179 miles per hour. The 4S with PDK and Sport Chrono will do 0-60 in just 3.4 seconds, and can hit a top speed of 188 mph.
The Targa body style will be available on any other Porsche variants. The 991.2 generation featured Targas in 4 and 4S like we have here, but also on the GTS model, which hasn’t been revealed for the 992 generation yet. We’re hoping when that arrives, Porsche will give it the Targa treatment
