A 3.4-litre 6-cylinder boxer engine with a power output of 257 kW (350 hp) accelerates the new 911 Targa 4 from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.2 seconds. The new 911 Targa 4S is powered by a 3.8-litre 6-cylinder boxer engine with an output of 294 kW (400 hp). When combined with the optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), this model takes just 4.6 seconds to reach the 100 km/h barrier.
The enhanced Porsche Traction Management (PTM) ensures the new 911 Targa 4 models can tackle any type of weather and any type of road surface. It precisely and directly regulates the distribution of the drive forces to the front and rear axles.
A visible indicator of the all-wheel-drive system is the seamless taillight strip. Other distinguishing features include the wider body and broad rear tyres – 295 mm on the new 911 Targa 4 and 305 mm on the new 911 Targa 4S.
Some choose to regard the new 911 Targa 4 models as design objects. But their performance potential soon makes it clear that they are far too good to be kept just for show.
