2014 Porsche 911 Targa : Current Models

As expected, the 911 Targa will be identical to the existing coupe and convertible variants from the rocker panels up to the belt line. Above that, it gains a large wraparound rear window and a roll bar adorned by three small vertical air vents, design cues that characterized the first 911 Targa that bowed in 1967.

Unlike the original model, the new Targa's roof panel is power-operated, opening and closing at the touch of button. The fully automatic system stores the roof panel behind the rear seats when the driver decides that a little open-air motoring is in order.

The Targa will be offered in 4 and 4S model variants. The 4 will come standard with a 3.4-liter flat-six rated at 350 horsepower and 287 lb-ft. of torque, while the 4S utilizes a 3.6-liter flat-six that churns out 400 horsepower and 324 lb-ft. of torque. Both send output to all four wheels through the buyer's choice of a seven-speed manual transmission or seven-speed "PDK" dual-clutch automatic.

Porsche says the 911 Targa will launch this summer, with pricing starting from $102,595 for the 911 Targa 4 and $117,195 for the 911 Targa 4S (including destination).
