Video: New Porsche 911 Targa Caught Testing With its Fake Soft Top

Posted on by  

The soon-to-be-resurrected Porsche Targa has been caught testing many times, but the only thing we could bring you were some spy shots. Now, YouTube user DrGumoLunatic managed to catch on video the car testing somewhere in the district of Stuttgart, Germany with nearly no disguise on.

As previously rumored, the new Porsche Targa will bring back the famous fixed targa roof option offered for the first time in 1965. This video definitely offers up some confirmation of these rumors, even though the prototype caught testing here tried to hide the targa roof under that fake soft top.

The 911 Targa should be offered with a 3.4-liter direct-injected flat-six engine that delivers a total of 350 horsepower and 287 pound-feet of torque. We anticipate the top trim level of the targa model to feature a 3.8-liter flat-six engine with an output of 400 horsepower.

With the testing phase well under way, we expect to see the new 911 Targa unveiled by the end of 2013.
