Featuring a Targa roof bar, a movable front roof section, and a wraparound rear window, the roof segment can be closed and opened through a button. The roof stows in a section behind the rear seat when activated.

Both models, the Targa and Targa 4S, are AWD versions, and feature a wider rear track and body compared to the regular 911. The Porsche Traction Management (PTM) seen in 911 AWD models is also available on the Targa.

Mated to an optional PDK gearbox and Sport Chrono package, the 911 Targa can achieve a 0-100 kph time of 4.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 280 kph. In the standard version’s manual transmission, a speed of 281.6 kph is achievable.
