Porsche has taken inspiration from the past for the styling of the latest 911 Targa, mixing classic design elements that evoke the 1967 original with the modern-day convenience of open-top motoring at the push of a button.
Key among the classic styling cues is a fixed B-pillar hoop that extends over the cockpit, boosting structural integrity. As with the original, it sports a matt chrome finish.
A further throwback design feature is the new car’s convex rear screen. The one-piece glass structure is attached to the rear bodywork and mimics the dome shape of the rear of the 911 cabriolet’s fabric roof.
While the original 911 Targa boasted a roof panel that could be removed and manually stowed in the front luggage compartment, the new model receives a fully automatic structure that operates at the press of a button.
