The Targa roof system has always been an unmistakeable hallmark of the extravagant 911 model. The new Porsche 911 Targa continues this tradition with an innovative roof concept. The roof is made up of two movable parts: a soft top and a glass rear window. The rear window, which is attached to the convertible top compartment lid, is opened and tilted at the push of a button. At the same time, two flaps open in the Targa bar, releasing the soft top's kinematics. The convertible top is released, folded into a Z-shape as the roof opens and stowed away behind the rear seats. A crosswise-running trim behind the rear seats accommodates the convertible top. Once the top has been stowed, the flaps in the bar and the rear window close once again. The roof takes around 19 seconds to open or close using the buttons in the centre console while the vehicle is stationary. A wind deflector integrated in the cowl panel frame can be erected manually when the top is down. This deflector reduces drafts and buffeting in the interior by a considerable margin, should this be what the driver wants.
