Yes they do offer a 2wd but with 380bhp (I think) and not the 420 like mine

I have had my CS4 gen 2 coupe on order since begining of September, I still do not have a build date but was promised at the time it will be ready for March. I have also not submitted my final spec.


I'd be chasing up the OPC if I was you....they will know their allocation of build slots for Q1 by now.

I have just been informed now I have been allocated a car, and I have just submitted my spec. I guess I will have to wait now for the built date

Unfortunately none on the Porsche website, only 4wd, £90k for Targa 4, £100k for Targa 4S. £9k extra for Targa over Carrera... so same as the Cab.

I'm pretty sure that there isn't a 991 2wd Targa - just the 4 and the 4S.

Yes you're correct (my bad) but they have 370bhp also

I struck lucky in September. Dealer staff car, 98% my dream spec. I also got a very nice chop in price for my 991.1 GTS, so cost to change was attractive.

Love every inch of the Targa and very impressed by the driveability of the 3.0l mated to 4WD/4WS for my personal driving circumstances. Fully appreciate and respect that that may not be the case for purists.

Thanks for all your replies....if everyone else has to wait for them then it makes me feel somewhat better.....

Did pop in to Guildford OPC and saw a Red T4S in the show room on a PDK with virtually the same spec as my order....must have made a very lovely Xmas present for some one and just reconfirmed how, I just have to have one of these cars even if it means waiting.

Thanks Laserblue, I was just very very lucky to be in the right place to jump on this when it came up. Pedantic issues I know, but would have a specced the Spyder style 20" rims and the more hugging sports seats rather than 18 way non sports. As I say, hardly show stoppers. In every other way it is simply superb - roof down on Boxing Day for a blast.

Well...news from the OPC in Guildford....The next slots will be May/June if any become available.....(based on a deposit taken 14 November 2016).

Had a look at the DVLA New Registrations data and if this information is to be believed, I can see what I am up against, which will be further aggravated by Porsche launching the Targa GTS model. I am looking at a long wait, me thinks....

Fingers crossed for you!

Give us a bit of drool/discussion material. I never tire of seeing Targa's.
What spec have you gone for?

1 Targa 4S listed in 2016, could be mine!

My OPC told me these cars were very rare but I didn't think they'd be that rare!

Yes Huw - Sapphire Blue. I was nearly seduced by Miami but it's just a little too way out there for me.

Fab spec @Lasrblueexige

Now a few months in, my only suggestion would be to seriously consider a rear wiper. I know it spoils the clean lines, but a couple of mornings/evenings this last month I would have killed for one. The heated RW glass is not very quick/efficient so de-icer spray on board vital if leaving out over night. Did you consider the RS Spyder wheels out of interest?
