Porsche release new 911 Targa 4S Exclusive Design Edition
Hot on the heels of the Porsche 911 Endurance Racing Edition (details of which can be found in the latest issue of Total 911), Zuffenhausen’s Exclusive department has been busy at work with its next bespoke creation: the 911 Targa 4S Exclusive Design Edition.
The 991 Targa is unarguably Porsche’s most retro piece of styling and the Exclusive team have played with this theme for the Design Edition, giving the new car a classic paint hue that helped it fit right in at the Nürburgring’s Oldtimer Grand Prix, the venue for the Targa 4S Design Edition’s public debut.
Originally a standard colour for Porsche 356Bs in 1960 and 1961, the Etna Blue shade utilised on the body is used on much of the exterior trim as well, including the decklid and roll hoop badges.
Contrasting against the pale blue hue, the Exclusive Department has finished the roll bar itself in satin white gold, matched to the 20-inch ‘RS Spyder’ alloys and ‘Porsche’ side script decals, while the headlights surrounds, tailpipes and decklid grill are all gloss black.
Porsche Exclusive’s customary bespoke sill plates and embossed centre console cover (the latter bearing the Targa’s iconic silhouette) are present and correct inside the Graphite Blue leather-clad interior, which features decorative Provence Blue stitching, air vents and floor mat trim.
Unlike the Endurance Racing build, the Porsche 911 Targa 4S Exclusive Design Edition doesn’t feature any performance enhancing options as part of its £132,887 list price. In the UK, the single-digit allocation will be sold solely via the Porsche Exclusive Centres at Mayfair, Solihull and Hatfield.
