The 911 Targa features a wraparound rear window, without a C-Pillar.

Taking inspiration from the original model launched in 1965, the Targa is devoid of a C-Pillar, but comes with a wraparound rear window. In place of the B-Pillars, the sportscar gets a wide bar with a movable roof section above the front seats. It takes 19 seconds for the roof segment to open, and stow itself behind the rear seats.

Offered exclusively in all-wheel drive, the Targa comes with two engine options. The Targa 4 is powered by a 3.4-liter six-cylinder engine capable of 350 hp and 390 Nm of torque, while the more powerful Targa 4S is powered by a 3.8-liter six-cylinder producing 400 hp and 440 Nm of torque. Optionally, the 4S can be specified with a Powerkit that sees its output increase by 30 bhp.
