Rather than the sliding roof design of the 997 variant, Porsche has gone back to its roots by reverting to wrap-over B-pillars with a clip-in removable glass roof panel. The larger, convex rear window is another unique feature.
Once again it will be based on the wide-bodied Carrera 4 and 4S, meaning a choice of either a 257 kW (350 hp) 3.4-litre or 294 kW (400 hp) 3.8-litre version. Call us weird, but we’ve always been fans of the (ultra-rare) late eighties Turbo Targa and would love to see that particular model make a return.
The 991 Targa is expected to make its debut at the Los Angeles motor show in November before hitting dealerships early 2014.
