6 (3.6 L Targa 4)
@ 6600 rpm
replacement 911 Targa model, designated the 997 Targa 4, is
offered in exclusively all-wheel-drive format. Available with
either a 3.6 litre flat 6 in the Targa 4, or with a more powerful
3.8 litre flat 6 in the Targa 4S, the new car offers almost
all the fun of a convertible without sacrificing the dynamic
abilities of a hardtop.
In terms of performance, the Targa 4 sprints to 60 mph in 5.3
seconds and tops out at 174 mph. While the Targa 4S gets to
60 mph in 4.9 seconds and top out at 179 mph. As with other
911 models, a six-speed manual transmission is standard equipment,
with a Tiptronic S semi-auto available as an option.
As with the previous 996 Targa model, the most striking feature
of the car is the large, sliding-glass roof and glass rear hatch,
which blend sleekly into the classic 911 lines while providing
the Targa with its own unique personality. A polished, anodized
aluminum trim strip runs the entire length of the roof frame,
emphasizing the 911's classic silhouette.
It only takes 7 seconds for the roof to slide back and reveal
a 4.8 square foot overhead opening. The Porsche 997 Targa's
roof system also features a semi-translucent powered sun shade
for days when it's simply too hot to sit under the glass canopy.
