New Porsche 911 Targa trailers

Porsche has released a couple of trailers featuring its new 911 Targa models.

The company has gone back to its roots by reverting to silver wrap-over B-pillars like the original 911 Targa of 1965, but this time there’s a fully automated roof panel, which can be opened at the touch of a button in 19 seconds and stows between the rear seats and window.

Once again the Targa is 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. Equipped with the optional PDK transmission and Sport Chrono package, the Targa 4 cracks 100 km/h in 4.8 seconds and is capable of hitting 280 km/h (174 mph) or 282 km/h (175 mph ) with the manual gearbox.

The beefier 4S accelerates to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and reaches 293 km/h (182 mph) when specified with the PDK and Sport Chrono package or 295 km/h (183 mph) with the manual.
