Product Overview

The 992 Porsche 911 Targa features the same 3.0L twin-turbocharged boxer engine as the Carrera and Carrera S, though it is available only with all-wheel drive. Armed with the optional Sport Chrono package, the Targa 4S can accelerate to 100 km/h from a standing still in under 3.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 304 km/h.
Porsche's unique 8-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK) is standard, while a 7-speed manual is optional. The new all-wheel drive system in the Targa 4 and Targa 4S features water-cooled clutch and differential unit. With reinforced clutch discs, the power transmission to the front axle can now be adjusted with higher accuracy.

Sentiment Score 74%
Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
With the roof in place isolation is okay, but in typical 911 fashion there is a large amount of road roar. More than anything else, it’s that persistent white noise that would likely prove draining when covering big miles. Roll is a touch more pronounced through the corners too, but with pretty immense four-wheel traction and a beautifully weighted, supremely accurate steering rack at its disposal, the Targa remains a seriously quick, effective road car.

Pros
  • Powerful turbocharged engine
  • Impressive handling
Cons
  • Rear-driven Carrera S Cabriolet is more fun to drive

3.0-litre twin-turbocharged six-cylinder produces 444bhp and 530Nm of torque. 0-62mph takes 3.6 seconds, and the top speed is a lofty 189mph. Four-wheel drive and Porsche's quick-shifting eight-speed PDK transmission (a manual isn't available)

Pros
  • Powerful engine
  • Comfortable to drive

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.

Pros
  • Fantastic ride quality
  • Excellent infotainment system
Cons
  • No roof down
  • Noisy at higher speeds

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The Targa is arguably the most desirable non-GT 911 you can buy. Originally designed to be a safer version of the Cabriolet, the first Targa featured a manually removable roof and a roll-hoop to protect occupants in the event of a crash. Like the standard 4S, the Targa 4S produces 443bhp from a six-cylinder, 3.0-litre boxer engine with twin turbochargers.

Pros
  • Gorgeous interior
  • Impressive all-wheel drive system
  • Fantastic handling
Cons
  • No manual gearbox
  • Pricier than standard 4S

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged flat-6 puts down 443 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. The PDK dual-clutch transmission grows an extra gear for the 992, for a total of eight. The dashboard sports a 10.9-inch touchscreen that runs the PCM infotainment system.

Pros
  • Fantastic powertrain
  • Comfortable to drive
  • PASM adjustable suspension
Cons
  • Not particularly good on gas
  • Dumb door handles

Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The 911 Targa 4S doesn't disappoint with a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six making 443 horsepower. The PCM infotainment system in the 911 is now Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capable. Sharp, direct steering helps the 911 turn in for corners immediately with hardly any body squat.

Pros
  • Powerful twin-turbo engine

Cons
