Your Damn Near Perfect Porsche 911 Has Arrived

Review

It might even be our new dream car.

Its general shape and engine layout are iconic; no one else today builds ass-engined sports cars. Despite body shell redesigns, the switch over from air-cooled to water-cooled flat-sixes, hydraulic to electric steering and, most recently, those new turbo flat-sixes found in the Carrera and Carrera S, the Porsche 911 is still an industry icon. Always will be. Prefer RWD? No problem, that’s standard. AWD has its perks, too. Some prefer the 911 as a coupe, others as a convertible, but fortunately there’s a happy medium, and it’s called the Targa.

Combine that with AWD and the GTS trim and you’ve got a damn near perfect car. It looks and sounds brilliant. Performance? Try a 430 horsepower naturally aspirated flat-six. 0-60 mph happens in 4.1 seconds and top speed is clocked at 186 mph. The guys at XCAR take a look back at the 911 Targa’s history as well as taking the GTS Targa for a spin.
