Porsche is very good at coming up with new permutations of its classic 911, but at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, it revived one of the classics. The Porsche 911 Targa debuted in 1965 as an attempt to combine the open-topped fun of a convertible with the practicality of a coupe. Its removable roof panel, roll bar, and fixed rear window became an icon for Porschephiles. The Targa 4 is equipped with a 3.4-liter flat-six that produces 350 horsepower, while the 4S gets a 3.8-liter flat-six with 400 hp. Both models will be offered with either a seven-speed manual transmission or the seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automated manual. Porsche will launch both Targa models exclusively with all-wheel drive. Equipped with the PDK and optional Sport Chrono package, Porsche says the Targa 4 will do 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 174 mph (175 mph with the manual). Similarly equipped, the 4S will do 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 182 mph (183 mph with the manual).
