Porsche 911 Targa 4S
The engine and transmission options are carried over directly. That means you choose from a pair of turbocharged 3.0 engines, a base version with 365bhp, and the S, which has 414bhp. Both still sound like proper Porsche motors but neither hits the high notes like its predecessor.
Inevitably, there’s some turbo lag too, but very little, and the compensation comes in the form of a wide, flat torque curve. That doesn’t mean there’s no reason to wring it out to the redline, because the engine seems to get a second wind past 5000rpm, but it does make this new 911 feel far faster, and far more relaxing to drive than the old one.
Now, with 3.0-litres augmented by a pair of turbochargers, it feels impressively rapid through the gears – but, more importantly, far gutsier when you summon some in-gear go. Zero to 62mph takes 4.7sec in a non-S Targa with the manual gearbox (4.3ec with PDK), compared to 5.2sec for the old naturally aspirated equivalent.
