2017 Porsche 911 Targa 4 PDK Automatic Tested: A Beautiful Conundrum

Porsche has given consumers many different choices, when it comes to their cars. They have many options and they are well worth it for people that are willing to drop 100,000 dollars on a car. With the Targa of today, there is one thing that cannot be chosen and that is rear wheel drive.

Key Takeaways:

  • Porsche has built its enviously profitable business around the luxury of choice, and the 911 sports car offers 22 variants, with even more customization possible for color, materials, and features.
  • The best features on the 911 Targa are its vintage looks, impressive top-down serenity, and speed even with the base engine.
  • The downsides on the Targa are the added weight and weakened structure, which dull the all-wheel drive 911 experience.

“We’re torn: We love the way the Targa looks but wish it didn’t come along with the extra heft and weakened structure that dulls the 911 experience.”
