There are rumours flying around that Porsche will announce a 991 Turbo Targa very soon. Tim Hutton, a graphic designer friend, created this clever image of what a 991 Turbo Targa would look like, and graciously said I could share it here.

It’s an intriguing idea and one that makes sense, as the Turbo Cabriolet has long been a popular choice for buyers, especially in the UK (obviously because of our sunny climate!). Also, the Targa and Cabriolet share parts so, in theory, it wouldn’t be a difficult car to develop. With the new Targa receiving so many compliments about its looks and clever roof system, a 991 Turbo Targa would surely be a popular model.
It wouldn’t be the first time that Porsche has built a 911 Turbo Targa, either. One was available back in the 1980s although it’s rare to see them. We sold a very nice example a couple of years ago, which was super-rare because it was also a flatnose (below). You can see details here.
