Whatever choice Porsche makes, this won’t affect the nature of the model and it is now clear that while the name may be tamed, the car’s identity will become stronger. Thus, those who want “some” open air in their 911 but don’t like the Cabrio will be able to opt for the aforementioned generously-sized sliding glass roof, which offers so much more than a typical sunroof does.
As for those who really want to enjoy the Targa experience, they will enjoy the benefits of a dedicated model which will bring back the spirit of the original 1960s Targa, but with a modern layout.
As we previously reported, we expect Porsche to use a layout that includes a central rollbar and a massive glass panel that will electrically be folded behind this. The company will probably reinvent the Targa concept just like it did with the Cabriolet one for the new 991 generation, which has an intelligent roof mechanism.
The 991 generation of the (Carrera?) Targa is expected to arrive in the first half of next year.
