Will the 911 Targa Turbo Lovechild be Born in Geneva?

Rumor / 60 Comments

Only way to improve a 911 Turbo or 911 Targa is to mate them into one phenomenal model.

Entering a Porsche dealership, buyers are faced with a difficult dilemma: go for the cool-factor design of the 911 Targa - with its awesomest-in-the-world retractable roof that can make the sun shine on the darkest of days - or opt for the performance-oriented, mind blowing speed of the 911 Turbo S, with its 560 horsepower and 2.9-second zero-to-sixty times. But what if these buyers didn't have to choose?

According to highly-substantiated rumors, Porsche is planning to unveil a mind-blowing 911 Targa Turbo at the Geneva Motor Show next week. This model would combine the glass roof and robotic motor of the Targa and the 520hp engine of the Turbo or 560hp of the Turbo S. It would also eliminate the fire-hazard temptation of the 911 GT3, which is still under recall by the company. With no official confirmation as of writing, we'll have to wait for next week for final word.
