Porsche has launched the Targa variants of the 911 Carrera. For the first time, according to Porsche, the Targa models will be available with permanent all-wheel drive and a body that is 44mm wider at the rear.

As with the 996, the 997 Targas feature a large glass roof and folding rear window. The Targa 4 is powered by the familiar flat-six engine, delivering 325 bhp power from its 3.6 litres. It accelerates the car from 0 to 62mph in 5.3 seconds while the 3.8-litre S produces 355bhp and a 0-62mph of 4.9 seconds.

The rest can be read here and pictures

Looks very well, like the chrome on the edge of the window.

Probably just being stupid here but what's the point of the hatchback boot style operation of the rear window?

Dowhh, they stole that 'Brouchaide Gold' colour from Pug for the OPC web pics but it still looks Gaw-geous when the sun is shining!

I got a natty brochure in the post this morning from OPC Solihull, who presumably have me logged as a Targa-ist.

Looks very nice indeed. But £70k for the 4, £77k for the 4s :eek:
Saying that, that's not a lot more than an XK Convertible. Mass-produced cars are so expensive now...

From the top it looks nice - just like a Cayman :wink:
