Fresh on the heels of Porsche’s release of the new 911 Targa and Targa 4S, the prestigious German brand has now revealed the Heritage Design Edition: a special edition model based on the top-shelf 190mph S-spec 911 Targa that pays homage to Porsche’s design language and branding of the 1950s and 1960s.
A product of Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, this special edition model is offered in four colors, with each sporting white stripes, retro Porsche logos, and race numbers of the sides and “spear-shaped” striping running back from the headlights. Riding on wheels inspired by vintage Fuchs rims, the car also features a number of special badges and emblems based on items off of the 356, as well as special crests in the headrests, on the steering wheel, and a vintage-themed leather interior with Corduroy trim and 356-style green-illuminated instrumentation, amongst a slew of other subtle nods to historic models. Under the hood, the 4S’s twin-turbocharged 3.0L six and its 444hp and 391ft-lbs of torque go unchanged. Porsche Design also produced a matching limited edition mechanical chronograph available exclusively to 4S HDE buyers. Limited to 992 units, the 2021 Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition is slated to hit showrooms in the coming months, starting at $180,600.
