The Porsche 911 Targa is arguably the most beautiful iteration of the 911. Having revealed the 2021 Porsche 911 Targa 4, 4S models recently, the Stuttgart based manufacturer has taken covers off the new 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design with design elements from the 1950s and early 1960s. Only 992 models will be made available. The number matches the internal model series code of the latest 911.
The Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design will be offered in exclusive Cherry Metallic paintwork as well as four other exterior colours. This, along with gold logos, will create a retro 1950s style. A further highlight is the Porsche Heritage badge on the engine lid grille at the back as it bears a similar design to the Porsche 356 badge that was awarded to owners back in the day upon reaching the 100,000 km mark.
The past will also meet the present with the Porsche Crest of 1963 deployed on the bonnet, steering wheel, wheel hub covers and vehicle key. It is also embossed on the head restraints and key pouch, and found on the standard 20/21-inch Carrera Exclusive Design wheels and the Black classic-look brake callipers.
The interior also pays tribute to the past and can be ordered in a choice of two flavours: Bordeaux Red leather with OLEA club leather in Atacama Beige or Black leather with OLEA club leather in Atacama Beige.
The use of corduroy on seats and door trims pays homage to the material used on the 356 and style from the 1950s. The rev counter and stopwatch will bear numerals in a classic green look. Completing the retro look of the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design is a metal badge on the trim panel.
As with the 911 Targa 4S, the Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo flat-six engine that makes 330 kW and 529 Nm, and that is paired with either an eight-speed dual-clutch gearbox or seven-speed manual transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint is achieved in less than 3.6 seconds (with Launch Control) before reaching a top speed of 304 km/h.
