History of Porsche 911 Targa 4S
In September 1965, the Porsche 911 Targa made its debut at the Frankfurt International Motor Show. It is the first safety cabriolet with a fixed safety or roll bar in the world. The 911 Targa was Porsche’s response to the growing safety standards for convertibles. The odd concept, which might be described as a cabriolet or a coupe, was a true eye-catcher. When the Head of Domestic Sales Harald Wagner advised maintaining the first half of the name “Targa Florio,” he coined the word Targa, which means “number plate.” Porsche chose Targa over the ‘911 Flori’ because the Porsche Management Team had seen success in this iconic road race in Sicily. The optional addition of a fixed glass rear window became standard on the Porsche Targa in 1969.
It was introduced in September 2006 as the sixth 911 generation, named the 997. It has benefited from various enhancements, including a weight reduction, thanks to the unique glass. Aside from being lighter, the two-wheel-drive variants were dropped in favour of the all-wheel-drive 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S. The aluminium strips between the window and the roof, as well as an additional rear lid for added functionality, were a sure-fire way to identify the 997.
The original style of the Targa roof, which epitomises the term “contemporary classic,” was brought back to life by Porsche. The renowned Targa roof can now be operated electronically at the stroke of a button, combining modern technology with traditional elegance. Furthermore, the roof is automatically retracted in a state-of-the-art action that collapses behind the back seat, dubbed the “return of the Targa.”
With the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Edition, the new 911 Targa pays homage to tradition. The 911 Targa 4 and 4S, which retain the classic Targa roll bar, are examples of the 911 to 992 adaptation. It has the same style as the 992, with the square bonnet, making it easy to identify as the most recent model. The twin-turbo flat-six rear engine in the 911 Targa 4 produces 379 horsepower and has a max speed of 189 mph. Its power and style can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.8 seconds, establishing it as a style icon.
Porsche has produced 1,760 cars globally since the launch of the 997 Targa, with 800 of those sold exclusively in the United States out of a total of 38,922 911 models produced.
