Ah, the Turbo Targa - the rumors on the return of this derivative seem to be gaining more traction than ever. So, will Porsche bring back the mix between the two badges for the 992 incarnation of the 911?
The German automaker hasn't made any official statement on the matter, as opposed to, say, the fact that there will be a hybrid Neunelfer (actually, we could see a 4 E-Hybrid, a Turbo S E-Hybrid or even both).

Nevertheless, with aficioando crying for the return of the TT, Zuffenhausen might just resurrect this. For one thing, we've already seen prototypes of the 992 Turbo and the 992 Targa, even though the latter seemed to be based on the Carrera (S).

After all, with the Targa being the least scale-friendly model of the 911 lineup, the extra muscle brought by the Turbo hardware would be more than welcome.

Speaking of which, while the leaked image portraying what is believed to be the Turbo Aerokit has allowed us to check out the appearance of the newcomer, its tech side remains well hidden.

We could see Porsche retiring the twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six of the current car. In the race to meet ever-stricter emission standards, the company is expected to come up with an all-new unit, possibly linked to the twin-turbo 3.0-liter of the Carrera (S).

Of course, the Turbo will receive a dedicated incarnation of the new eight-speed PDK and here's to hoping this comes with a mode that makes it more aggressive than the Carrera S implementation.

Porsche will introduce the new 911 Turbo by the end of the year, at least in Coupe and Cabriolet form. Meanwhile, we can feast our eyes on this Turbo Targa rendering portrayed in the social media post below. The image uses the said spy material as a starting point, which makes it feel rather accurate.
