The 911 Targa is the glass roof version of the 911 Carrera. Both the 3.6 and 3.8 liter engines are carried over, therefore, performance is nearly identical. But for those who enjoy the looks of the coupe over the cabriolet, the Targa may be your best bet. Although the roof weighs an additional 130 lbs, leave it to the Porsche engineers to compensate for the extra weight by modifying the suspension.
In addition, when the roof is retracted, a small glass deflector that sits above the windshield is raised to aid in aerodynamic stability. A long-time 911 option, the Targa continues to be a popular choice for those who love the panoramic view of the sun and sky.
