Porsche had only recently unveiled its 911 Targa 4S and last week, the company launched the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition.
The retro-styled 992 generation Targa 4S pays homage to the automaker’s racing success that it enjoyed in the 1950s and 1960s. “With the Heritage Design models, we are evoking memories of the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s in customers and fans alike,” said Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG in a press release.
Powered by a high-tech 331 kW (450 PS) biturbo boxer engine, which in combination with the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, accelerates the 911 Targa (with Launch Control) from 0-100 km/h in less than 3.6 seconds on its way to a top speed of 304 km/h.
The special limited edition car from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur has the classic exterior and interior design elements combined with the latest technology.
Only 992 units will be built matching the internal model series code and is available in five colours. The Cherry Metallic paint clubbed with the timeless gold logos gives the model an authentic 50s look. The spear-shaped graphic motorsports elements on the front wings reflect the early days of Porsche competition history.
Another remarkable highlight is the Porsche heritage badge on the engine lid grill in the rear. Back in the days, this badge was awarded when a Porsche 356 reached the 1,00,000 km mark.
As an ode to the racing history of the automaker, the interiors of the car has is two-tone leather combined with Bordeaux Red leather with OLEA club leather in Atacama Beige or Black leather with OLEA club leather in Atacama Beige. Corduroy is used on the seats and the door trims, which marks the return of a material used in Porsche 356 that was unveiled in the early 50s.
This limited-edition heritage model is available from $1,80,600 onwards.
