Say what you will about Porsche messing around with the same styling, but the conservative Germans have gotten off their high horse and put their engineering might into one amazing roof for the new Targa. It's both technologically advanced and as classical as opera.
We celebrated the new 911 Targa in January at the Detroit Auto Show. It looked fantastic in person but we wondered if the same could be said once it was light naturally. After all, Porsche designs have a tendency to come very close to a boring understatement if the wrong color or wheel is chose.

It might be the novelty factory, but this blue 911 Targa that's been spotted in "the wild" is by no means boring. Sitting in a driveway somewhere near Stuttgart, the production model has the markings of a basic "4" model equipped with a 350 hp boxer engine. Still lots of money has been expended on making the car presentable, through a good choice of wheels and Porsche's famous Chrono Package.

Update: We've received fresh photos of the car, so if you want to see a new 911 Targa with a rear window wiper from up close, here's your chance.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
