Another new 911? Well, Porsche embarked on a ‘991.2’ update across the core models in the 911 range in 2015, including those controversial new downsized turbocharged engines – and now it’s the flip-top Targa’s turn.
Both of the new 3.0-litre turbo lumps are available for the Targa; the regular Targa 4 model gets the base engine with 365bhp, and the top Targa 4S version tested here the full 414bhp monte.
What else is new for the 991.2 Targa, apart from a pair of turbos?
Some tiny styling tweaks, the easiest to spot being ever-so-slightly different headlights, tail lights and engine cover slats. Spec the Sport Chrono pack and the driving mode switches (for Sport and Sport + settings) migrate from the transmission tunnel to a rather functional click-wheel control on the wheel. It’s not particularly elegant, but it works well.
