2020 Porsche 911 Targa With Removable Top Photographed Undisguised In Red Too

Porsche has rolled out more prototypes of the upcoming 992 Targa for testing, again without any camouflage other than some tape between the rear lights, though the newest one come with a red body. See it in our comprehensive gallery below.(Update 4/17/2019)

The latest new Porsche 992 family member to strut its stuff in front of our spy photographer’s cameras is the next-generation Targa, seen here devouring the Nurburgring virtually undisguised and wearing a very bright shade of green, same as this 911Cabriolet model we saw back in December.

Unlike the regular Cabriolet, the Targa can be described as a bit more exotic thanks to its iconic roof pillar design, or “Targa bar”. The mechanism appears to be the same as before, with the top edges sliding up and inwards, in order to allow the roof to retract.

992-gen family taking shape

In case you have any doubts about this being the all-new 992 Targa, a simple glance at the rear end design or the door handles for that matter, should set your mind at ease. Compared to its predecessor, it features new headlights, revised air intakes, new LED daytime running lights, a reshaped hood, wider fenders and a horizontal light strip for the rear fascia.

Inside, it will have the exact same tech as its already-unveiled fixed roof sibling, meaning a new instrument cluster, revised switchgear and a larger 10.9-inch infotainment display, all embedded into a more angular dashboard – a throwback to 1970s designs.

Better performance

We can only assume that the 2020 Porsche 911 Targa will get the same power bump as the regular all-new Carrera, meaning the base version will go from 370 horses to 380, while the Targa 4S will be good for 444 HP (450 PS) instead of 414 HP (420 PS).

Porsche will likely unveil their newest Targa model later on this year, possibly at the Frankfurt Motor Show in mid-September.

    The best 911 derivative for me

    Why do we invest so much resources and desire in such objects as a Porsche, when we should be electrifying everything from solar, and taming our desires for the sake of our children and other species. Go electric or hybrid.
    Don’t be a stupid consumer. I love Porsches and believe it or not, I can afford a couple, but I will never buy one.

      I guess you’re not up on the automotive world then. Porsche also makes hybrids with their SUVs and sedans. And they’re also coming out with an electric sedan. The 911 is positioning itself into a hybrid by leaving a space in the transmission for an electric motor. They also made a hypercar that was a hybrid.

  • that engine hood line is disattractively taking eye specially on lighter colors I suppose.

    Just if that top was hard panoramic like SLK or SL this could have been my ultimate vehicle!

    Why is the rear light strip fully above the rear bumper? I cant get past how awful it looks. Lower it down and make the rear look even wider!

      I do wish it was 10mm down but I’m guessing from the design sketches the theme was to have that rear peak as pure as possible. That and they wanted the cutline to run straight across.
