The new 911 Targa 4 models feature two-zone automatic climate control as standard with an enhanced ventilation effect and separate temperature controls for the driver and front passenger. The available air conditioning modes are gentle, normal and strong.
An active carbon filter traps particles, pollen and odours and an automatic air recirculation function permanently monitors air quality, reduces humidity and switches from fresh to recirculated air when required.
In warmer weather, a solar sensor helps the climate control to detect strong sunlight and automatically compensate for the comfort of both the driver and front passenger.
As an option, it is possible to have a programmable garage door opener integrated into the overhead console. At the push of a button, it controls up to three different garage doors, lighting systems or alarm systems.
The optional light design package is both practical and aesthetically appealing. It comprises dimmable LEDs in the overhead console and in the areas of the door pulls, door storage compartments, front footwells and rear seats.
This automatic speed control function is available as an option. For greater driver comfort on long stretches of road, cruise control operates in the 30–240 km/h speed range and is activated using a button on the steering column control stalk.
ParkAssist for the rear is fitted as standard. Featuring four inconspicuous sensors fitted at the rear, the system audibly alerts the driver to the presence of obstacles. An intermittent warning tone increases in rapidity as the obstacle is approached.
An enhanced version of ParkAssist, with four sensors in the front end, is available as an option. The audible alert is supplemented by a visual warning in the central display, which shows a graphical representation of the vehicle from overhead.
With the optional Porsche Entry & Drive, you can leave your car key in your pocket. As soon as you grab the door handle or approach the luggage compartment, the door or luggage compartment lid unlocks. The engine can then be started and switched off using the electronic ignition switch.
The speed limit display informs the driver about speed restrictions and the start and end of no overtaking zones. The information is recorded using a camera and is shown on the colour display in the instrument cluster or via the PCM screen. If a traffic sign is missed – for example due to heavy rain – the speed limit stored in the navigation module is automatically displayed. The function allows the driver to concentrate more fully on the road ahead.
If you require route guidance, need to make a phone call or want to listen to the radio, then why not just say so? Almost all of the functions of PCM can be controlled using the optional voice control system with word-by-word input. The voice control system understands complete addresses when entered as navigation destinations, as well as phonebook entries and the names of radio stations.
The optional TV tuner is capable of receiving unencrypted analogue and digital television broadcasts (DVB-T)* to provide entertainment between journeys. For your safety, the TV picture is switched off while your vehicle is in motion.
* Digital television signals compressed in MPEG-2 format are supported.
