GALLERY: Porsche 911 Targa 4s Review

Outside Italy, Targa means first and foremost a Porsche 911 missing part of its roof. And “missing” is a key word here, because for three generations of 911 we’ve had Targa tops that were basically glorified sunroofs. In the 993, 996 , and 997 models , giant glass panels slid back to let in Mother Nature while the side roof beams stayed in place. Targa, sorta.

At Porsche, there are no conventions. Forbidding free thought? That’s forbidden. The only thing that matters is this question: how can we become even better? Let’s put it another way: can we redefine the limits of engineering? Can we reconcile apparent contradictions? Yes, we can. With Intelligent Performance.

In August 1967, the A series went into production with dual brake circuits and widened (5. 5J-15) wheels still fitted with Pirelli Cinturato 165HR15 CA67 tyres. , and the previously standard gasoline-burning heater became optional. The Targa (meaning "plate" in Italian ) version was introduced. The Targa had a stainless steel-clad roll bar, as automakers believed that proposed rollover safety requirements by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) would make it difficult for fully open convertibles to meet for sale in the US, an important market for the 911. The name "Targa" came from the Targa Florio sports car road race in Sicily, Italy in which Porsche had several victories until 1973. The last win in the subsequently discontinued event was scored with a 911 Carrera RS against prototypes entered by Ferrari and Alfa Romeo. The road going Targa was equipped with a removable roof panel and a removable plastic rear window (although a fixed glass version was offered from 1968).
