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 of the Heritage Design series of the same name that will arrive at dealerships this fall. The circulation of the model is limited to 992 copies. Exclusively for clients of a limited collection, the company also developed a chronograph suitable for the style, which will also be released in a narrow batch.


The new model is ultramodern and easily recognized by Porsche design elements of the late 50s and early 60s. Preserving the legendary appearance, it received a modern interpretation and the most advanced technology from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur.

 

The design of the model is a real digression 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 colors. On the front wings there is an impressive racing graphics, “arrows”, referring to the significant past of motorsport. The 1963 Porsche coat of arms is inscribed on the front cover, steering wheel, wheel hub covers, ignition key, head restraints and key case.

 

Another small but important detail is the iconic Porsche Heritage nameplate on the back-cover grille. In appearance, it resembles a Porsche 356 nameplate that stood out after a mileage of 100,000 kilometers. It would seem that there is one element, but how much shade of past times is in it, on which emphasis is made in the entire series.

 

The car interior, of course, is made according to the canons of modern design, but also tuned to traditions. The first thing we see inside the cabin is the recognizable two-tone leather trim in Bordeaux Red or Black with Club OLEA leather in Atacama Beige. Corduroy material in the decoration of seats and doors 100% reproduces the spirit of the era of the 50s, the same material was used in the Porsche 356. The individual serial number of the limited edition is indicated on the front panel.


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