Porsche Completes Its 2021 911 Range With A 444HP 190MPH Targa 4S

The first Porsche Targa model was released in 1965 with the 911 2.0, making waves as a driving machine that offered the safety of a hard-top in an open-cockpit-style car. 55 years on and the elite German marque has now unveiled the latest iteration of the roll-barred sportscar with the 2021 911 Targa 4 and Targa 4S.

Powering the new models is a twin-turbocharged 3.0L six-cylinder boxer engine that makes 379.5hp and 332ft-lbs of torque in the base model and 444hp and 391ft-lbs of torque in the S-spec — translating to roughly 4 second 0-60mph times and a 180mph top speed for the Targa 4, and sub-3.5-second 0-60mph runs and an approximately 190mph top speed on the 4S. The electronically-controlled Porsche Active Suspension Management, manually-adjustable fuel maps, Porsche Traction Management traction control, and eight-speed dual-clutch transmission are all standard fare as well — though the 4S is offered with a new Sport Chrono package-equipped manual seven-speed as an upgrade. Obviously the most distinct element of the new Targas is the roof system: a roll-bar protected open-top with a removable wide roll hoop that can be opened or closed in less than 19-seconds. Pricing for these new Targas starts at $119,300 for the base model and $135,200 for the 4S.

Purchase: $119,300+
