The 2021 Porsche 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S are revealed in a special virtual world premiere. Both are the latest in the 992 generation lineup or the eighth generation of the Porsche 911 sports car.

All 2021 Targa models are all-wheel-drive as the “4” in its name suggests and are both powered by twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six engines.

With the Sport Chrono Package, the Porsche Targa 4 can run from 0 to 100 in 4.0 seconds with a top speed of 289 km/h while the high-performance Targa 4S can go from 0 to 100 in 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 304 km/h.

In terms of design, it is still mostly all Porsche 911 other than the electronically operated roof and a full-width roll bar that is placed behind the driver and the passenger seats.

The roof is made up of two magnesium segments and features sound-deafening material within its fabric. The roll bar, or also known as the Targa bar, is finished in its signature silver color and has been upgraded to better compliment the new model.
