Pricey, but so worth it.
Only a couple of weeks following the debut of the 2021 Porsche 911 Targa 4S comes the reveal of a new special edition. Meet the 2021 Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Edition, a tribute to the German automaker's past from the 1950s and 60s with numerous interior and exterior styling touches. The exterior color you're looking at is Cherry Metallic though buyers have a choice of four other colors, all of which are combined with gold logos and white livery at the top of the front fenders and along the body's lower side.
Another tribute to the past is the unique Carrera Exclusive Design five-spoke wheels inspired by the Fuchs design. There's also another badge located on the rear decklid which takes direct inspiration from the same one made available to Porsche 356 owners once they reached 100,000 kilometers (62,137 miles) on the road.
Step inside and you'll find a two-tone leather interior. Buyers will have a choice between Bordeaux Red and Atacama Beige (pictured here), or Black and Atacama Beige. Another cool touch is the corduroy on the center of the seats and door trim, as a nod to the 356's interior. The Porsche crest is embossed on the headrests while the gauges receive a green-illuminated rev counter and stopwatch.
Despite all of the heritage touches, this 911 Targa 4S is mechanically identical to the standard Targa 4S, meaning power comes from a 3.0-liter twin-turbo flat-six with a total of 443 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque. Power goes to all four wheels through either a seven-speed manual transmission or an eight-speed dual-clutch.
Production will be limited to just 992 examples, reflecting the 992-generation 911. Pricing will begin at a hefty $180,600, which doesn't include the $1,350 destination fee. The first US market deliveries are scheduled to begin at the end of the year. Porsche says that this is only the first of four Heritage Editions planned, so be on the lookout.
Lastly, buyers also have the option to purchase a special edition Porsche Design chronograph watch which features a coloring scheme that matches the 911.
