While the Targa 4 offered plenty of excitement and delightful driving experience, the Targa 4 S offered more punch thanks to the addition of 65 hp for the engine.
While the first models featured a plastic rear window and a soft top, the 2020 Porsche Targa 4 S model featured a wide panoramic rear windscreen without a C-pillar and a soft top that was retracted at the push of a button and disappeared in 19 seconds behind the cabin.
The front side of the car was impressive with the new design for the bumper and apron. It was like the engine department and the brakes department struggled to get more air-scoops in the front of the car, and the result was an almost even distribution for all of them. The B-pillar was silver regardless of the car’s color. In the back, the third brake-light mimicked the 11 number when it was lit.
Inside, the Carrera 4 S was fitted with all the comfort and luxurious items required by an exclusive sports-car as the Porsche 911. The sport seats and the finishes had a premium look. The instrument cluster featured the classic five-dials, but only the tachometer was analog. The other four were TFT displays. A 10.9” screen for the PCM (Porsche Communication Management) was installed in the middle of the dashboard.
The flat-six under the engine lid was a 3.0-liter turbocharged engine that cranked up 450 hp. It was mated as standard with the new 8-speed automatic (PDK) transmission, but a 7-speed manual was available at no extra cost. The all-wheel-drive system was enhanced for fuel-efficiency. The Porsche Activ Suspension Management was standard equipment.
