The thing with Porsche is that their cars don’t just hit the roads, they hit the hearts. As a leading car maker of the world, Porsche cars are basically challenges for themselves to create an even better model in the future. May it be the Carrera or the Targa series, these cars have always been the best of the lot. The new 2018 Porsche 911 Targa 4 is no different. With a new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter flat-six engine, let’s see what else this one has got.
2018 Porsche 911 Targa 4 Review
With just being shy of a full redesign, Porsche continues the stylish, young yet elegant looks. In the 2018 Porsche 911 Targa 4, there are new headlights, new taillights, and a new touch-screen dashboard display. All the models in this series sport the all wheel drive and a wider body. Another highlight is the PASM chassis (Porsche Active Suspension Management).
The front bumper is slightly modified. The door handles now come without recess covers for a cleaner look. The classic Targa open top style gives it an official kind of like so that no Targa fan will ever go disappointed.
In the interior, although there aren’t too many changes, you might find quite a big update to the standard Porsche Communication (PCM) infotainment system. There’s onboard wi-fi, Bluetooth and remote vehicle data retrieval making it almost like a batmobile when it comes to technology. The car is spacious and sporty, just how you’d like it.
2018 Porsche 911 Targa 4 Power and Engine:
A 3.0 l displacement, 6 cylinder engine with a Max power of 370 HP (420 for the Targa 4s), 10.0:1 compression ratio and a top speed of 179 MPH with 0-60 MPH in just 4.5 seconds, yes, we’re talking sheer power here!
With a 12 percent higher efficiency in this 2018 Porsche 911 Targa 4 than the last models, and a better mileage, this model is like a one stop solution to all your power issues with any of the previous Porsche.
2018 Porsche 911 Targa 4 Price and Release:
The price of the Targa 4 manual transmission model starts at $108,600 which then goes up to $125,800 for the 4s PDK model. With an expected availability in April 2018, the car has already been the eye candy for many in the Los Angeles Auto Show this November.
To conclude, the 2018 Porsche 911 Targa 4 is quite a promising version for the Porsche lovers but definitely on a bit expensive side. The cutting edge tech used in the car does make up for most of it, but the car lovers will definitely compare it with the Jaguar F Type or the Aston Martin V8 once it’s out.
