Last week, we brought you the first spy shots of the upcoming Porsche 911 Targa and today, we’re bringing you a rendering inspired by those spy shots. As you probably remember, the new generation 911 Targa will bring back the famous fixed Targa roof option offered for the first time in 1965. The spy shots taken last week showed Porsche’s attempt to hide this feature, but upon closer inspection, the model hidden under it was pretty clear. Our rendering strips the vehicle of its camouflage to reveal the Targa roof further.
Under the hood, Porsche will place the same engines found in all of the new 911 models. This means we will see a 3.4 liter flat-six engine with 350 HP for the base version and a 3.8 liter flat-six with 400 HP for the 4S version. Both engines will be mated to Porsche’s new optional seven-speed PDK gearbox.
Expect to see the new Porsche 911 Targa launched in 2013.
