The latest generation of this extravagant 911 variant now combines the classic Targa concept with highly advanced roof-activating convenience. Just like the legendary original Targa, the new model has the characteristic wide bar instead of the B pillars, a moving roof part above the front seats and a wrap-around rear window without C pillars. Unlike in the older classic models, the roof panel is now opened and closed at the press of a button. The fully automatic roof system stows the roof behind the rear seats in a spectacular way. The latest version of the 911 features the typical Porsche PTM all-wheel drive system that by design transfers proportionately more power to the rear wheels. This system guarantees maximum driving performance on a variety of road surfaces and in all weather conditions.

The sport exhaust system is one of the options offered in the new 911 Targa generation. At the press of a button, the exhaust system is dethrottled, and the two exhaust lines are merged. When the sports exhaust system button on the centre console is pressed, the even throatier sound of the flat-six engine is combined with optimal performance. As a result, the car’s acoustics are even more emotional. As a visual highlight, the sports exhaust system is fitted with two twin tailpipes with a unique design.
In the new generation of the 911 Carrera, Porsche introduced an electro-mechanical power steering that offers impressive performance and precision. It also lowers fuel consumption by at least 0.1 l/100 km compared with hydraulic power steering. The optional Power Steering Plus provides additional convenience and makes manoeuvring at speeds below 50 km/h much easier by increasing the power steering assist.
