2015 Porsche 911 Targa 4s
Porsche is introducing two new models to the 911 range: the 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S At the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit . These models are the first to combine the classic Targa concept with cutting edge, innovative roof technology.

Both 911 Targa models exclusively come in AWD version, featuring the wider rear track and body. The roof system consists of two moving parts: a soft top and a glass rear window. At the press of a button, the glass rear window opens to the rear and tilts. At the same time, two flaps in the Targa bar open and release the soft top kinematics. The soft top is unlatched, folds to the rear into a Z-shape during the opening movement and stows behind the rear seats. A panel running across the car behind the rear seats integrates the soft top. To protect the car from damage, the standard integrated rear ParkAssist monitors the area behind the 911 Targa while the roof is opened and closed. If the sensors detect an obstacle within a range of less than 40 centimetres, a warning sounds. This prevents the rear window that is being tipped back from colliding with a closely parked vehicle or other object standing behind the Porsche 911 Targa.
The sport exhaust system is one of the options offered in the new 911 Targa generation. This active damper system is available as an option on the basic model. All 911 models are fitted with a Sport button as standard that lets the driver choose between a sport-optimised tuning and a comfortable tuning optimised for fuel efficiency. The Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) provides even better illumination of the road in the dark. It includes dynamic cornering lights and speed-dependent running light control which improves visibility by adapting the light cone and light intensity as a function of vehicle speed. The interior of the new 911 Targa models offers typical high-quality 911 convenience and comfort features in a well-designed layout.
