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.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
