Coupé or Cabriolet? Porsche answered this question back in 1965: both. The result: the 911 Targa 4S. Since then they've refined it continuously. And it’s become more comfortable and more dynamic.
The engine of the 911 Targa 4S, with 3.8 litres, delivers 283 kW (385 hp) at 6,500 rpm. The maximum torque of 420 Nm is available even at 4,400 rpm.
More traction and more fun – in any weather – from the Porsche Traction Management four-wheel drive system fitted as standard. Like the 911 Carrera 4 models, the body is 44 mm wider at the back. For an even more sporting appearance and better driving dynamics. The wider rear track and wider tyres allow even better transverse acceleration in corners.
The electrically operated glass roof is fully integrated into the body and gives a sensation of infinite width – open or closed. Despite the large glass areas, body rigidity is extremely high. Increased loading comfort thanks to the opening glass rear screen.
A complete decor strip of anodized and polished aluminium emphasises the elegant lines of the roof. It describes a tight arc from the A-pillar back to the rear quarter windows with their characteristic pointed style. For an unmistakable silhouette. The rear section is accentuated by The striking rear light strip.
So the 911 Targa 4 combines design and comfort with unsurpassed performance. For a unique driving experience – as they have since 1965.
Every element fulfils a function. From this principle, the 911 draws its inner strength. The logical consequence of this is the 911 Carrera’s very low drag coefficient of 0.29.
The air intakes on the new front end have been enlarged to provide increased cooling power and give an even more dynamic appearance.
Bi-xenon headlights are fitted as standard on all 911 models. The indicators and LED daytime running lights and position lights are harmoniously integrated into the separate front light units above the outer air intakes for an imposing look. The optional dynamic cornering lights have a swivelling module for the dipped beams – visible engineering for improved visibility.
As with the modified exterior mirrors which provide an even better rearward view.
The rear end, too, has undergone a restyling. The imposing LED taillights are drawn right into the wing and taper off to the outside. Unmistakable – especially at night. The stainless steel tailpipes, designed as twin tailpipes on the S model range, are integrated seamlessly. Another important aesthetic contribution is the new wheel design. As standard, 911 Carrera models are fitted with 18-inch wheels and Carrera S models with 19-inch wheels.
The stainless steel exhaust system comprises two independent and separate exhaust tracts. Its catalytic converters are highly temperature-resistant and heat up rapidly for effective emissions reduction.
Thanks to advances in emissions technology, they are able to meet strict emission standards, such as EU5 in Europe and LEV II in the USA.
Using stereo lambda control, two sensors continuously monitor the exhaust gas composition for each exhaust tract. A further sensor monitors the efficiency of the catalytic converters.*
In addition, a sports exhaust system is available as an option. This can be activated as desired using a button on the center console. If fitted in conjunction with the optional Sport Chrono Package Plus, the sports exhaust system is activated automatically when ‘Sport’ mode is selected.
Each circular dial in the instrument cluster – aluminium-coloured in the S models – provides important information at a glance. The digital display in the centre-left dial contains the main and trip odometers. In the central dial, the customisable display of the standard on-board computer is integrated into the rev counter. Road speed is displayed permanently, while average fuel consumption, average road speed, fuel range, and the data of the optional TPM can be shown as desired.
The centre-right dial displays the outside temperature and shift pattern of the optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), as well as the selected gear.
Text and symbols are displayed clearly by the high-resolution dot matrix. Design and legibilty are also enhanced by the white backlight illumination.
Even with the roof closed: the view upwards is unlimited. Just like the possibilities offered by the glass roof in the 911 Targa 4 models. Because you decide how open you want to drive. At any speed.
Simply press the switch in the centre console. The glass roof lowers. Now it can be moved back into any position you want. The automatically extending wind deflector reduces air turbulence and wind noise. So you can enjoy open-top driving even in damp or cold weather and on long journeys.
The glass roof is made of tinted laminated safety glass. Combined with the electrically extending extra sunblind, it offers good protection against strong sunlight or heat loss at low external temperatures.
The glass rear screen can be opened for easier loading of luggage into the rear. It is opened either from the inside or by remote control from the vehicle key. An electric closing aid ensures comfortable closing.
In brief: the 911 Targa 4 models have a special place thanks to the combination of a unique roof concept and intelligent all-wheel drive. Almost no other vehicle combines driving dynamics with function and design so superbly.
Welcome Home Lighting.
When the vehicle is opened or closed using the key remote, the automatic locator lighting automatically switches on the LED daytime running lights. This is particularly convenient at night. In conjunction with the optional Sport Chrono Package Plus, you can program the delayed lighting switch-off period via the PCM.
This universal garage door opener is integrated into the overhead console and remotely controls up to three different garage doors, gates, home lighting and/or alarm systems.
Automatically Dimming Mirrors.
An auto-dimming function for the rear-view mirror and exterior mirrors, with an integrated rain sensor for the windscreen wiper, is available as an option.
An automatic speed controller for the 20–149 mph speed range is available as an option. It is activated using a separate control stalk on the steering column and can be used even in first gear.
This optional rear wiper with a flat, streamlined wiper blade blends seamlessly with the exterior of the car.
Whenever reverse gear is engaged, ParkAssist is automatically enabled. If you move too close to an obstacle, a warning signal begins to sound, becoming faster until the car stops. The sensors of the optional ParkAssist are neatly concealed in the rear bumper.
