Dead on Targa

911 Targa gets direct-injection upgrades. No one gets fired

911 Targa

Porsche has released the Targa version of its new 911.

It gets the same technological upgradingness as the rest of the 911 range - direct injection engines, PDK double-clutch gearbox - and the same are-you-sure-you've-actually-changed-this visual enhancements.

So the Targa 4 now puts out 345bhp, while the Targa 4S, with the bigger 3.8-litre boxer six, develops 385bhp.

Naturally, both get permanent four-wheel drive, while the trademark sliding glass roof remains unchanged.

The 911 Targa goes on sale in the UK this October, with prices starting at £72,980.
