VIDEO: A Brief History of Targa

With the launch of the latest version of 911 Targa - the 4S Heritage Design Edition - 911 Magazine presents the official video timeline, from concept to reality

Created back in the 60s, Porsche's Targa was the company's practical soloution to concerns by the American car market about sufficient crash protection. The concern back in Zuffenhausen was that those profitable sunshine States in the US may become less so as a consequence of this development.

However, this being Porsche, they set out to create a solution that would stick with the company’s engineering ethos and yet be attractive. As expected, form followed function...and as with many Porsche inventions, it's still as relevant today.
