New 2015 Porsche 911 Targa: Are These Official Patent Images?


The greyscale images you see here are purportedly patent photos of the production Porsche 911 Targa, which were published on TF1's Automoto section. What we see here pretty much matches what we've heard, and more importantly, what the actual prototype models of the 991 generation Targa look like, so chances are, it's the real thing.

With the new 911 Targa, Porsche is returning to the model's roots for the design of the top that sports a removable section above the passenger compartment followed by a thick center B-pillar in front of a fixed, wraparound glass rear window – just like the original version of the series from the 1960s and through the 1980s.

We expect the 991 Targa with the old-school roof style to make its debut sometime next year, likely offering two engine choices, the base 350PS (345hp) 3.4-liter flat six and a stronger 400PS (395hp) 3.6-liter unit in "S" guise.
