2007 Porsche 997 Carrera 4S

PostPosted: Fri May 19, 2017 9:06 pm    Post subject: Targa 4s 's Reply with quote

Saw a 997 gen2 targa 4s on the motorway today. Always liked the look of them in pictures but had never seen one up close.

Have to say, I loved it. Easily as nice as a coupe in my opinion. The one i saw was a very cool car. Cool

I agree. I have always had a soft spot for these.
£50k though for a gen2 and there aren't that many around.
The reputation is not great for the roofs though....

Targa is a very practical and daily 911, if you like to enjoy life in a 911, take a Targa. Its lovely.

I dont have any noise issue from the roof, but my window motor squeaks…

Any mechanism is a potential source of noise, don’t get scared away.

By coincidence on the way to my OPC today to have my cracked rear lens replaced, I followed a nice Targa C4 up the A3 into Guildford (anybody on here?). first one I have seen and it looked nice from the rear. Very Happy

Targa's are lovely to own but can be very expensive if anything goes wrong....a couple of mates both have 993 Targa's which they've owned for ten plus years. Both have had some big bills related to the roof over the years. No idea how closely the 996 and 997 mech's relate to the 993...One of them has kept his car outside a lot and now he has somewhere inside to keep it was thinking about getting a full body respray. Bodyshop told him to allow a "substantial four figure" sum for parts because removing and re-fitting the roof would likely result in new parts having to be ordered. He's postponed!

I saw a white 997.2 Targa C4S a while back and it left an impression, I must say. Looking from behind, the targa roof line appears to be narrower than a coupe's, coupled with the 4S widebody with the red reflector on the back, it looked immense.
I'd take one in a heartbeat for sure. Would be a tough decision over the 991 targa though. they also look mega in my opinion
