  Convenient top arrangement; bonus cargo space; it’s a 911, baby! The roof, the roof!

When we mention Porsche’s legendary 911, sensible probably isn’t one of the first words that comes to mind. But if you’ve long wanted a convertible and you live in a place where the pitter-patter of rain or the white slushy stuff comes more than just a few days a year, something a little sensible might be in order. What’s the use having a convertible — especially one of the 911’s caliber — when it’s good for only a few months of the year?

 

That’s the premise behind the Targa, a model that’s halfway between coupe and convertible, offering open-air thrills with a full-length, slide-open glass roof instead of a loud, drafty soft top or a clunky, complicated folding-hardtop mechanism.

 

Porsche has repositioned the Targa within the 911 lineup this time, and has equipped it more lavishly than in the past and fitted it with standard all-wheel drive. The rationale behind this is that Targa buyers are interested in driving their 911 year-round, and they’re more likely to take longer trips than their Carrera- or Convertible-buying counterparts. The Targa customer is not someone who’s looking to go out for track events, according to Porsche higher-ups, but more of a grand-touring buyer.
