Review

The Targa is a four-wheeled paradox. Yes, it's the least focused version of the world’s favourite sports car, but it more than makes up for that in many ways. Thanks to the 911’s brilliant platform, here is a convertible that’s searingly quick, sharp to drive, plush around town, surprisingly practical and genuinely usable 365 days of the year. This isn’t just a car you could drive every day, it’s one you’ll really want to.

get the best price

S models get a reasonable amount of equipment, including leather upholstery, dual-zone climate control, a 10.9in touchscreen sat-nav system with Apple CarPlay, front and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, LED headlights, cruise control, heated seats and keyless entry. Several desirable bits of equipment aren’t included, though; rain-sensing wipers, lane–keeping assistance and keyless start are all on the options list.

This 3.0-litre ‘flat’ six has 444bhp and 391Ib ft of torque, enough for 0-62mph in as little as 3.6sec in a Carrera 4S with the optional Sports Chrono pack. The engine is flexible from low engine speeds but rewards being revved out with crushing pace and a characterful engine noise.
