Porsche Offers 911 Targa in GTS Version for the First Time

The latest Targa can be made out at first glance as a GTS model with all-wheel 
drive, because - compared to the two-wheel drive 911 Carrera models - the rear 
wheel arches are flared an additional 22 millimeters, and the rear tires are ten 
millimeters wider.
The latest Targa can be made out at first glance as a GTS model with all-wheel drive, because - compared to the two-wheel drive 911 Carrera models - the rear wheel arches are flared an additional 22 millimeters, and the rear tires are ten millimeters wider.

The new 911 combines the GTS idea with the classic targa concept. It comes with a 3.8-liter boxer engine with 424 hp (316 kW), standard Sport Chrono package, matt black 20-inch wheels with central wheel locks, sport design front end, black air intake screens and, also in black, GTS logos on the doors, at the rear and on the rollover protection bar.

Despite its significantly extended features, the weight-to-power ratio with the 424-hp engine was improved from 3.9 kg to just 3.6 kg per horsepower compared to the S model. This lets the Targa 4 GTS reach a top speed of over 186 mph (300 km/h) with a PDK transmission, and the stopwatch records 4.1 seconds for the sprint from zero to 60 mph.

The latest Targa can be made out at first glance as a GTS model with all-wheel drive, because - compared to the two-wheel drive 911 Carrera models - the rear wheel arches are flared an additional 22 millimeters, and the rear tires are ten millimeters wider. The front view is defined by the sport design of the car's front end with an opening for the auxiliary middle radiator and the smoked bi-xenon headlights that feature the Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS). In a side view, characteristic GTS attributes are the silky gloss black 20-inch 911 Turbo S wheels with central locks, the sport design door mirrors and "GTS" signatures on the doors. The "targa" logo on the silver rollover protection bar is also painted in silky gloss black. Black accents at the rear are the glossy trim on the air inlet screen, the model logo and the chrome tailpipes.

GTS DNA also defines the interior of the 911 Targa 4 GTS. Integrated at the center of the instrument panel is the stopwatch of the Sport Chrono package. In the front, the four-way adjustable Sport Plus seats - with their black GTS logo on the head restraints - provide additional lateral support and long-distance cruising comfort for driver and passenger. The dominant interior material is black Alcantara, which is just half the weight of leather.
