Porsche 911 Targa 4 - Exterior design

Exterior design

The 911 concept follows a clear design idiom which incorporates sloping dynamic roof lines, accentuated front and rear wings and round headlights. Together, these features ensure that the 911 is just as unmistakable now as it was 50 years ago.

The elegantly rounded rear screen and the bar lent the original Targa a certain lightness which has inspired designers throughout the world of vehicle design, and indeed beyond.

For the new 911 Targa, our designers sought – and found – a way of directly expressing both the distinctive individual style of the original Targa and the sporty performance that characterises the seventh generation of the 911. Consequently, it now features an even flatter silhouette, crisp clean lines and an extended wheelbase for even greater stability. Above all else, a revolutionary roof concept which, rather than running counter to the evolved design idiom of the 911, blends with it to create a harmonious whole. The result is a design which is purposely timeless and yet always current.

In detail: the wide front track which, together with the flat roof line of the 911, creates a particularly dynamic front view. The standard Bi-Xenon headlights feature round surrounds, thus combining classic appeal with state-of-the-art engineering.

A profile view reveals that the new 911 Targa 4 models likewise have the unmistakable silhouette of the 911. The aluminium trim of the bar with characteristic fins and ‘targa’ logo provide additional stylistic touches.

At the rear, everything – the styling, the appearance, the effect – is crisp and precise, thanks to the clean lines and slim LED taillights. They help to accentuate the horizontal contouring of the rear, an impression which is lent additional emphasis by the active taillight strip. The stainless steel tailpipes are unmistakably Porsche. A dual-branch design is used for the new 911 Targa 4S. The wide rear spoiler is extendable which reduces lift in all driving situations and increases driving stability.

The new 911 Targa 4 is equipped as standard with 19-inch wheels, the new Targa 4S with 20-inch wheels. The large wheels enhance the authoritative sporty presence of the new 911 Targa 4 models even more. The tyres have a large rolling circumference for improved comfort and performance.
