Porsche 911 Targa History
Named after the Targa Florio, a sports car road race in Sicily, Italy in which Porsche had several victories until 1973. What sets the Porsche Targa lineup apart is the targa top or targa for short. What does that mean? Basically it’s a semi-convertible car body style with a removable roof section and a full width roll bar behind the seats, first used on the 1966 Porsche 911 Targa. The Porsche 911 Targa has a rich history starting from the 1950s to today.
- Wider and flatter front wings.
- Wider and straighter rear wings.
- Extensive engine and chassis enhancements.
- Optional Targa without a roll bar.
- New roof made of tinted heat-insulating glass, running from the front window frame to the rear, now encased within a longitudinal safety structure.
- Smooth opening at the push of a button.
- Reduced wind noise when the roof was closed.
- A wide bar in place of B-pillars.
- A moving roof section above the front seats.
- Wrap-around rear window without a C-pillar.
