Ok, we have to admit that we can’t get enough of the 2014 Porsche 911 (991) Targa 4 and that’s why we are bringing you some live photos from the Motor City. Wearing a blue color that it is simply stunning, the Porsche 991 Targa is a modern classic and the first to combine the classic Targa concept with a new state-of-the-art roof technology.
Moreover, the new 991 Targa brings back the characteristic wide bar in place of the B-pillars, a movable roof section above the front seats and a wraparound rear window with no C-pillar. But unlike the classic models, the roof section above the front seats on the new Targa can be opened and closed at a push of a button.
When activated, the new fully automatic roof system tows the convertible top behind the rear seat system, providing a real spectacle. Offered only with AWD system, the Targa 4 and 4S models share a great deal in common with the 911 Carrera 4 cabriolet models; up to the window line, the technology and body of the vehicles is more or less the same.
Just like the predecessor model, the new Targa is offered in two versions: 4 and 4S. The 911 (991) Targa 4 is powered by a 3.4-liter flat engine rated at 350 hp (257 kW). When equipped with the Doppelkupplung (PDK) and Sport Chrono package, this model accelerates from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.8 seconds and boasts a top speed of 282 km/h (175 mph).
Despite these performances, the 2014 Porsche 911 (991) Targa 4 has a combined fuel consumption between 10.0 and 8.7 litres/100 km and emits 237-204 g/km of CO2. The 911 (991) Targa 4S is powered by a 3.8-liter petrol engine that generates 400 hp (294 kW), which is able to push it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds, when equipped with PDK and Sport Chrono Package.
Fuel consumption fluctuates between 10.0 and 9.2 litres per 100 km, depending on transmission, which corresponds to a CO2 level of between 237 and 214 g/km.
