Porsche often caters to niche groups within the supercar buyers, and the Targa 4 is no different. Offering open air driving without the hassle of a convertible, this newest Porsche offering delivers plenty of performance wrapped up in a sport package. From the black Alcantara seats that hug the driver and passengers to exterior styling that keeps everything working as expected, the Porsche 911 Targa 4 delivers.
The 911 has retained the same basic design philosophy, it is a little more rounded and polished than some of its predecessors. The different look that the Targa roof offers will help set this particular Porsche apart from the others on the road, and the retro glass roof really gives you something to talk about. It also offers options—you can either drop the entire roof, or simply retract the back glass shell. Since the vehicle sits so low to the ground, you tend to feel completely enveloped once you’ve climbed in.
The feel of the Porsche 911 Targa 4 is bright and aggressive—it seems to intuit the road rather than drive over it. Front and rear axles are incredibly well balanced and maintain tight contact with the ground, while the brakes are as responsive as ever. While certainly a luxury car by price, the Targa is all sports car in the seating and in the ride.
While there isn’t a great deal of room in the back, it is plenty big enough for an overnight bag or to toss in a tote. One feature that is unexpected is the suede-covered steering wheel; which feels quite different from the more traditional slick leather. This powerful and sculpted driving machine will provide you with hours of enjoyable transportation.
