New 911 Targa

Porsche's Targa 4S gets latest updates


Porsche's
Targa 4S has been treated to a facelift to bring it in line with the
rest of the new 911 range. This means that it gets the Direct Fuel
Injection flat-sixes that have more power but use less fuel.
The car will also be available for the first time with the new
Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK), which literally means Porsche
double-clutch gearbox. The Targa is exclusively available with
four-wheel drive and this is now provided via electronically-controlled
Porsche Traction Management, which replaces the viscous multiple-plate
clutch arrangement fitted previously.
The PTM system was first developed for the 911 Turbo and has been
modified for the Targa models. The transmission delivers a higher level
of driving stability, traction and agility, further enhanced by the
mechanical limited slip differential also now fitted as standard to the
rear axle.
The main feature of the Targa is the 1.54-square metre glass roof
made up of two segments: the sliding roof above the occupants and the
top-hinged tailgate. The second generation Porsche 911 Targa 4 models
go on sale in Great Britain and Ireland on October 25. The Targa 4
Coupe 3.6-litre is priced from 72,980, and the Targa 4S Coupe
3.8-litre is priced from 80,270.
