Rumor: Porsche 911 (991) Targa Turbo to bow at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 26, 2014

Porsche didn’t tell us what it has prepared for the 2014 Geneva Motor Show but apparently Jalopnik knows and it is going to be a BIG surprise! Why? Because Porsche is preparing to unveil the 911 (991) Targa Turbo! That’s right, Porsche will bring its fastest version of the Targa yet.

If the rumor is true, this means that the 911 (991) Targa Turbo will be powered by the 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine found on the 911 (991) Turbo and capable to deliver 520 hp (383 kW).

Just like the 911 Turbo Cabriolet, we expect the new Targa Turbo to hit 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds and a top speed electronically limited at 318 km/h or 197.5 mph.

Porsche might also offer the 911 (991) Targa Turbo S, which will be even more powerful using the same 3.8-liter six-cylinder engine rated at 560 hp. This model would zoom from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds and offer a top speed of 318 km/h or 197.5 mph.

Regarding the design, we expect a 911 (991) Targa with styling updates inspired by the 911 (991) Turbo.
