Return of the legend: Porsche unveils 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition

The 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition is the first of four collection models in the Heritage Design series of the same name, which will arrive at dealerships this autumn. The model’s circulation is limited to 992 copies. Exclusively for clients of the limited collection, the company has also developed a Porsche Targa Chronograph to launch in collaboration with the vehicle, but this watch will also only be released as part of a limited edition.

The new model is ultra-modern and easily recognisable by the Porsche design elements of the late 50s and early 60s. While preserving the legendary appearance, it has received a modern makeover and enhanced technological capabilities from the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur.

The design of the model is a real excursion into the history of the brand. The body of the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition will be presented in the main spectacular tone of Cherry Metallic and four additional colours. On the front fenders you’ll find “arrows”, with these impressive racing graphics giving a nod to the significant past of motorsport. The 1963 Porsche coat of arms is proudly emblazoned to the front bonnet, steering wheel, wheel hub covers, ignition key, head rests and key case.

Another small but important detail is the iconic Porsche Heritage nameplate on the rear grille. It resembles a Porsche 356 nameplate, which stood out after a run of 100,000 kilometers.

The car interior, of course, is made according to the canons of modern design, whilst also taking into account the important traditions associated with the Porsche branding. The first thing we see inside the cabin is the recognisable two-tone leather finish in Bordeaux Red or Black with Club OLEA leather in Atacama Beige. The corduroy material used to trim the seats and doors is a nod to the spirit of the 50’s, with the same material being used in the quintessential Porsche 356. The individual limited edition serial number is shown on the front panel.

Speaking of the technical equipment of the car, it is worth noting the latest help systems and infotainment functions. The drive is a 331 kW (450 hp) biturbo boxer. The model is also equipped with an eight-speed gearbox with two clutches, combined with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, meaning that the high-tech boxer engine can reach a top speed of more than 304 km/h and accelerate the 911 Targa (with Launch Control) from zero to 100 km/h in less than 3.6 seconds.
