Latest model: Porsche 911 Targa 4S 2009
Porsche 911 Targa is without doubt the most avantgarde 911, a vehicle absolutely original the world over in its style and character. Introducing the two new Porsche 911 Targa 4 and Porsche 911 Targa 4S models, Porsche is now concluding the fastest generation change ever seen within the 911 model family. And at the same time this is one of the most powerful changeovers, two brand-new performance units with direct fuel injection improving both performance and economy at the same time, the fast-shifting Porsche-doppelkupplungsgetriebe replacing the former auxillary Tiptronic S automatic transmission and electronically controlled PTM Porsche Traction Management taking the place of the former all-wheel drive with its viscous clutch.

Porsche 911 Targa details:
Featured in the new Targa, this wide range of cool new technologies comes together with a very special version of the 911 product truly original features in each respect.
The highlight of the Porsche 911 Targa is the big glass roof measuring no less than 1. 54 square metres in size. A highly effective UV filter in the roof protects the car's occupants from excessive sunshine, enabling the driver and passengers to enjoy the journey even in outside temperatures of more than 30° C or 86° F, in conjunction with the automatic climate control featured as traditional. This is also made possible by the special glass used on the roof, the glazing letting via about one-third of the sunlight but only about 17 per cent of the thermal energy.
The dashboard therefore remains pleasantly bright, an electrically controlled roll cover serving to further reduce sunglare whenever necessary.
