Porsche introduced the GTS version for the 911 family in 2011 as a perfect balance between performance and daily driving experience, and, in 2021, it added that option for the 992 generation.
The Targa version was already a unique presence on the sports car market. Porsche designed it on top of the 911 Cabriolet version but added a massive system with servomotors and a large glass panel that opened and closed at a touch of a button. The LED headlights received darkened areas for the GTS version, while other black elements adorned the front side scoops and the rear diffuser. Also, the thick B-pillar, specific for the Targa version, was piano-black regardless of the car’s color.
Porsche didn’t have too much imagination for the interior and placed black trims all over the place. The instrument panel was similar to the rest of the 992 range but adorned it with the GTS lettering inside the analog tachometer. The rest of the dials were digital. Integrated above the center stack, the PCM (Porsche Communication Management) screen of the infotainment system matched the black color of the dashboard when turned off.
The Targa 4GTS was the best of all worlds, providing all-wheel-drive traction, an open-top experience, and a fixed-roof feeling in the same car. Its automatic transmission and adaptive suspension completed the image of a daily-driver sports car.
