Porsche 911 Targa Review Rundown
Porsche 911 Targa has long been seen as something of a 'poser's Porsche'. The base Targa 4 is available exclusively with Porsche's excellent 8-speed PDK, while a 7-speed manual is optional with the more powerful Targa 4S.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from Autocar have found the following[***]:
There are two different 911 Targa models available: the base Targa 4, and the more powerful Targa4S tested here in left-hand-drive guise. Both cars get Porsche's Active Suspension Management adaptive dampers, as well as Porsche Traction Management. Power comes from Porsche's 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six, which develops a healthy 380bhp and 332lb ft. In the 4S, these figures are upped to 444bhp at 6500rpm and 391lb ft between 2300-5000rpm. The 1675kg sports car can sprint from 0-62mph in 3.8sec and max out at 189mph.
Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The Porsche 911 Targa has long been a staple member of the 911 line-up. Not every new edition has been offered as a Targa but the new 992 model is here. The Targa weighs more than the coupe and, in 4S guise, costs a relatively whopping £109,725. For this, however, you get the potent 444bhp version of Porsche's latest turbocharged 3.0-litre flat-six engine.
Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
For the 2021 model year, the 911 Targa finally catches up to the rest of the 992-generation lineup. Its 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged flat-6 puts down 443 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. The PDK dual-clutch transmission remains as sharp-witted and fast-shifting as ever.
