Targa 4S Performance

The 911 Targa 4S also has a six-cylinder, three-litre boxer engine with twin turbochargers capable of 443 horsepower. This will get you from zero to 100 km/m in 3.6 seconds.

The Targa 4S also uses Porsche’s eight-speed PDK transmission, and it comes with intelligent all-wheel drive Porsche Traction Management (PTM). Its combined fuel consumption comes in at 9.9 l/100 km.


Targa Technology

Both the Targa 4 and Targa 4S models come with InnoDrive, which includes adaptive cruise control. The Smartlift function allows ground clearance to be programmed so that it can be raised for everyday use. Porsche improves the front-axle drive with PTM, creating greater traction in all road conditions. 

Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) is standard on both 911 Targa models. This system automatically adjusts damping characteristics for optimum comfort and handling for each driving situation. Porsche Wet mode is also standard.

Watch the world premiere of the 911 Targa on Porsche’s web TV channel where Dr. Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President Model Lines 911 and 718, explains the Targa’s new features.
