What Makes the Porsche 911 Targa Manufaktur Edition Special?

Porsche describes the 911 Targa... as a “highly refined” model. It comes with an Achat Gray Metallic exterior paint with white gold metallic accents and silver touches.

Gold and silver touches replace the black accents, which are reminiscent of the GTS model.

Apart from this, the special edition comes with a brown soft top and SportDesign package as standard. The car rides on 20-inch RS Spyder satin-white wheels that are finished in white gold metallic.

On the inside, the car feels special, thanks to the light brown natural leather upholstery. The dashboard, seats, door panels, and steering wheel get contrasting white gold stitching. In all the other places, there is natural leather espresso trim, with “911” embroidered on the headrests. Porsche has installed “911 Targa 4 GTS Exclusive Manufaktur Edition” badging on the dashboard and illuminated door sill plates. To top off the interior, a “Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur” logo is embossed on the center console.

The special edition 911 is powered by a 3.0-liter, six-cylinder, twin-turbo engine that generates 443 horses and 405 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to all the wheels via a seven-speed PDK transmission. This enables the car to sprint from naught to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds before topping out at 190 mph.

The Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS Exclusive Manufaktur Edition will be priced at €187,961. That is equivalent to approximately $218,000.

It will be sold solely in Germany and deliveries will begin next month. The car is indeed special, but was it a wise move to launch the car just a month before the 2020 911 is scheduled to be unveiled? Not to mention, the fact that the price-tag may instill some patience into the minds of the potential customers that would wait for the next-gen 911 to be launched. Do you think this car is special enough to justify its price? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
