2014 Porsche 911 Targa Preview: 2014 Detroit Auto Show
Why the 2014 Porsche 911 Targa Matters:
You might be asking yourself, if Porsche builds a 911 Coupe, and Porsche builds a 911 Convertible, why does Porsche need a new 911 Targa model in the lineup? It’s a good question, the answer to which lies in the fact that every 2014 Porsche 911 Targa will be equipped with the automaker’s all-wheel-drive system and the Porsche Traction Management technology that is included with it. You see, people who live where it frequently rains and snows occasionally enjoy gorgeous, sunny days, and on those days, they want a convertible instead of a closed coupe. The new Porsche 911 Targa delivers.
True, the new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and Corvette Z06 models offer a similar type of top, but it doesn’t come with all-wheel drive. A Jeep Wrangler hardtop has removable roof panels over the front seats, too, combined with 4-wheel drive, but it’s not in the same automotive universe as the Porsche. So there you go. If you want foul weather protection and traction combined with stunning sports car performance, this new 2014 Porsche 911 Targa is the only game in town.
