Description

Last time on the channel, I drove what could be the sweet spot of the 911 range, the new 911 GTS. But many suggested that perhaps the Targa is the one to benefit most from the #GTS formula… especially vs our hardcore lightweight coupé. So today, we test the brand new Porsche911 Targa 4 GTS in beautiful Italy! A very classy spec vs the super vibrant coupes we tried, our Targa GTS today is a much more daily 911.

The design firstly follows the same cues as the other GTS cars. Black highlights cover the standard giveaway centre looking wheels finished in pure black, straight from our turbo. The sports design package comes as standard but with more black areas covering the front lip, and rear diffuser. These can be in either matte plastic or gloss black, alongside the GTS logo on the side wing. Centre lock wheels from Turbo are an option, but we have the second option of the multi spokes on this car. Interior is also Big changes also happen under the skin as always with Porsche. Focus on rigidity, bringing chassis changes from our 992 Turbo with PASM as standard.

The rear springs also get the helper springs as we showed you in both turbo and GT3. The Targa version, however, doesn’t get the 10mm drop of the Coupe and Cabriolet. Overall it’s a more rigid car than the standard Carrera. Regardless the car also has a unique exhaust note, which sounds fantastic as seen on the drive! What the Targa does get though, is AWD as standard, as the Targa 4 GTS is your only option! In this configuration, the car provides 480 BHP, 570NM, and a 0-60 of 3.5 seconds!! (With sports Chrono pack ;) )That’s super-fast considering the added weight of the Targa, but will it feel different enough to the standard Targa 4S, and enough GTS like the amazing coupe we drove?
