Porsches have a rich history in automotive world starting with the 365 and then in 1965 the world was introduced to the Porsche 911. This trademark has been the base of Porsche now for 58 years and counting into the future. The Targa was also introduced in 65 at the same time as the traditional 911. Over the Years the 911 has just grown from a little air-cooled flat six to the much bigger car that has grown from strength to strength which even included big turbo engine.
But that is enough chat about brand and how they have grown over the last 58 Years and come to the reason and that is the rare Porsche 911 Targa 4. We are led to believe that only 20 examples were imported in the country back in 2006/2007 and we believe it’s a fine example of a 997 in its own right. At first one doesn’t notice that it’s a Targa and just looks like a regular Porsche, upon a closer view you notice the panoramic which in this case on opening it draws itself in the cab and now you have open top motor. With this car been based on the Carrera 4 she comes with the 3.6ltr water-cooled engine and the All-Wheel Drive system. We can say that this a driver’s car with the Manual Gearbox and the awesome flat six that just pulls like a great sports car should.
As a Porsche lover you will find that everything is in its right place, a large Rev-counter front and center, the motor in the back and for those real driver 3 pedals on the floor, and for those one in the know it’s just right.
The Crisp note of the low mileage flat six is a dream as she revs up and the handling of the Porsche is sharp like one is to expect. But honestly you can’t put a price on the smiles that this Sportscar has to offer and the fact that you can use it daily or just have as a weekend toy.
So, if Porsche’s are your thing or just want to get into the sportscar market this 997 Targa 4 is a good place to start. Come into our showroom and view it for yourself.
Interesting trade-in’s will be considered.
