New Porsche declassified in official photos on the eve of the debutMay 18, 2020
Another new Porsche – 2-door 911 Targa 992 series – on Sunday, May 17, declassified in official pictures on the eve of the debut.
The German corporation intends to conduct an online show of the 911 with an open top in the back of a targ on May 18. Most likely, at the beginning of sales, the new model will be available in variations of the Targa 4 and Targa 4S. The Porsche 911 Targa will not receive fundamental technical differences from the simple 911s in the coupe: it seems that the 2-door in the Targa 4 and Targa 4S versions will be equipped with an all-wheel drive transmission, an 8-band PDK robotic gearbox and a boxer turbo engine of 3.0 liter.
In this case, the Porsche 911 Targa 4 will be equipped with a 385-horsepower engine, and the Targa 4S will be equipped with the same engine, but boosted to 450 hp. Compared to the updated Targa 991.2 series, the increase in performance will be 15 and 30 hp. respectively.
It can be assumed that over time, the German corporation will open other versions in the body of the targa: modifications with rear-wheel drive, as well as the “driver” version of the GTS, which has a wheel nut with a central nut, more powerful brakes and another aerodynamic body kit. The Targa GTS is expected to deliver at least 480 bhp.
The cost of the variation in the Targa body is likely to be higher than the coupe and convertibles that have such power plants. More information regarding technical features and dynamic indicators, as well as the cost of new items for different markets, the German brand will unveil during the official show on May 18.
In addition, it was recently noted that in Europe, the Porsche 911 will receive a 7-speed manual transmission, retro elements and much more.
