2017 Porsche 911 4S Targa PDK Tested: It Has the Looks—and the Moves

The new 2017 Porsche 911 is iconic and has a strong appeal and great interior. The car is very well dressed not only on the inside but as well on the outside. With its sleek design you can definitely hear the engine roar on this car. There are many pros and cons to going with Carrera Targa which can also be chosen as a coupe.

Key Takeaways:

  • The 2017 Porsche Carrera 4S Targa has a relatively rare body style in L.A., where Carrera coupes and convertibles are as commonplace as Ford Mustangs.
  • Porsche has fitted it with the same prolific, twin-turbocharged 9A2 3.0-liter flat-six found in other Carrera S and 4S models.
  • In other respects—such as cabin comfort and ergonomics—the Carrera 4S Targa is generally as wonderful as any other Carrera.

“At 3687 pounds, this Targa was the heaviest Carrera we’ve ever tested (at least, the porkiest that wasn’t a full capital-T Turbo or Turbo S).”
