VIDEO: Is the Targa 4S the best version of the 992?
Porsche 911 Targa 4S review
Created in the 1960s to compete in the famous Sicilian road race, known as the Targa Florio (the world’s second oldest race), the Porsche 911 Targa has long been a staple member of the 911 line-up. Not every new edition has been offered as a Targa but the fact that the new 992 model is here is surely cause for celebration, even if the Targa weighs more than the coupe and, in 4S guise, costs a relatively whopping £109,725.
For this, however, you do get the potent 444bhp version of Porsche’s latest turbocharged 3.0-litre flat-six engine, backed up by a strong 530Nm, which combined is enough to send the 992 Targa 4S from 0-62mph in 3.8 seconds, or just two tenth faster with the Sports Chrono option fitted, as it was to our test car. Top speed is 189mph, so we’re talking about a genuinely serious high-performance car here.
