Porsche PH Now Taking Orders for 2021 911 Targa

Porsche Philippines announces that they’re now taking orders for the all-new 911 Targa models, and yes, you can even get it with a manual transmission.

Just like the legendary original 911 Targa model from 1965, the distinguishing feature of the latest 911 Targa is its innovative roof, which in the new model is fully automatic, has a unique roll hoop, a movable section above the front seats, and a wraparound rear window. This roof opens and closes in just 19 seconds.

Powering the new 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S is a 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged, six-cylinder boxer engine. In the 911 Targa 4 this power plant delivers 385 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 450 Nm of torque across a wide engine speed range of 1,950 rpm to 5,000rpm. When combined with the optional Sport Chrono package, the engine can propel the 911 Targa 4 from rest to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds. Top speed is 289 km/h.

Meanwhile, in the Targa 4S, the output is raised to 450 horsepower, while torque is at 530 Nm from 2,300 to 5,000 rpm. The output allows the latest 911 Targa 4S to reach 100 km/h in only 3.6 seconds, and a maximum speed of 304 km/h.

Both the new 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S are equipped with an eight-speed, dual-clutch transmission (PDK) and the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) intelligent all-wheel drive system as standard. The 911 Targa 4S can be ordered with a newly developed seven-speed manual gearbox, with which the Sport Chrono package is included. Fitted for the first time to both models is the Porsche InnoDrive that includes adaptive cruise control. The enhanced Smartlift function allows programming of the cars’ ground clearance, making them ideal for daily use.

Enhancing the performance of the new all-wheel drive models are an improved front axle, clutch and differential units which are water-cooled, and reinforced clutch discs that can better handle higher loads. The increased actuating torque at the clutch improves its adjustment accuracy and the function of the additional front-axle drive. Overall, the enhanced front-axle drive with PTM contributes to even better traction in all road conditions.

Standard to both the new 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S is the electronically controlled Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) variable damping system, which automatically adjusts driving comfort and handling to a particular situation. Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus), which includes an electronic rear differential lock with fully variable torque distribution, is standard on the Targa 4S and is an option on the Targa 4.

The 911 Targa 4 has 235/40 ZR tires on 19-inch alloy wheels in front and 295/35 ZR tires on 20-inch wheels in the rear, as well as 330-mm brake discs with four-piston monobloc fixed calipers. The 911 Targa 4S model is fitted with 245/35 ZR tires and 20-inch wheels in front and 305/30 ZR tires and 21-inch wheels in the rear. The model’s red brake calipers house six pistons in front and four pistons in the rear, all of which grab discs measuring 350-mm across. Available as an option is the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB).

Compared to its predecessors, the new 911 Targa’s body has significantly more pronounced wheel housings at the front and a hood with a distinctive recess that evokes the design of early 911 generations. The new 911 Targa’s rear is dominated by a wider rear spoiler which can extend to various settings, and a seamlessly integrated light bar. A large section of the car’s outer skin is made from aluminum.

The cabin of the new 911 Targa is characterized by the lines of the dashboard and the recessed instruments, the inspiration for which came from 911 models from the 1970s. Alongside the central rev counter—unmistakably a defining feature for Porsche—are two thin, frameless freeform information displays. A compact switch unit with five buttons for direct access to important vehicle functions is located below the 10.9-inch center screen of the Porsche Communication Management (PCM). Some of the PCM’s features are online navigation based on swarm data, and Connect Plus with Apple Car Play.

With the new 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S, Porsche continues to combine two worlds—the thrill of open-top driving in a cabriolet and the everyday comfort and safety offered by a coupe. Just as like it did with the original 911 Targa of 1965.
