ARES Design Gives Porsche’s 992-Gen Targa A Subtle Dose Of Italian Refinement

Modena-based ARES Design is something of a jack of all trades when it comes to coachbuilding, specializing in everything from bespoke interiors to turnkey restorations to iconic resurrections. So, while limited-run supercars like the S1 Project may command most of the limelight, they’re a mere fraction of what the Italian outfit can do. ARES’ latest work, for instance, offers a stunning take on one of Porsche’s most breathtaking designs: a 992-generation 911 Targa.

As we’ve come to expect from ARES Design, the execution is nothing short of extraordinary. From bumper to bumper, the Porsche exudes refinement, subtly modified with an extra helping of Italian flavor. For instance, it now wears a carbon fiber aero kit courtesy of Centro Stile, with 8cm of width added in the front and 4cm in the back. In addition to giving the Targa a striking new stance, this also means that it has decidedly more visual presence. And that’s not all; inside, ARES has completely gutted the stock interior, replacing it instead with caramel-colored leather, understated branding, and various other accents. Of course, a mere appearance package wouldn’t do the Porsche justice, so it’s also received some slight performance upgrades. Through meticulous tuning and upgraded sports exhaust, ARES Design has managed to pump a further 60hp over the boxer engine’s already impressive 379hp output.

Unfortunately, this is only a one-off, built on a made-to-order basis for a client. However, you can always have ARES create a custom for you by inquiring at the link below.
