Not wanting to leave any holes in the 911 lineup, Targa buyers have the choice to have the car in all-wheel drive, as opposed to the standard rear-wheel drive. The Targa 4 S is slightly slower than the hard top version due to the heavier roof and all-wheel-drive system which increases weight, thereby slowing the car slightly during acceleration. But what's really cool is that the roof can be opened at any speed. It simply drops down an inch and slides back underneath the hatch at the push of a button.
However, it carries a base price of $92,000 and maxes out at around $103,000. Whoever said that the combination of sun and performance come cheap?
