2010 Porsche 911 Targa
At the Paris Motor Show 2010, which took place from 2 to 17 October 2010, were officially unveiled two new versions of the legendary "911" family, the Porsche - Carrera GTS and Speedster. Moreover, in less than a month, as thanks to the tuners efforts of the German independent car manufacturer RUF, the car received its coupe "targa" body.
The 2010 Porsche 911 Targa, a carryover model from 2009, is a 2-door, 4-passenger luxury sports car, available in two trims, the 4 and the 4S. Similar to the entire 911 family, the Targa 4 was recently renewed with a number of exterior enhancements and a new engine. More to the point, the 4 is armed with a standard 3.6-liter, 24 valves, flat-six 345-horsepower engine @ 6500 rpm with an estimated fuel economy of 18-mpg in the city and 25-mpg on the highway for the manual transmission. The 4S is armed with a standard 3.8-liter, H6, 385-horsepower engine that achieves 18-mpg in the city and 25-mpg on the highway. A 6-speed manual transmission with overdrive is standard on both trims, and a 7-speed manual transmission with overdrive is offered as an option.
Power is transmited to all four wheels (4WD) with the rear two getting most of it. From 5 to 40 percent of power is reallocated to the front wheels as conditions change. Normally the torque split is 35/65 from front to rear.
Porsche's 911 Targa 4 in essence is a Carrera 4 Coupe with an amazing exclusive all-glass roof. The exterior of the glass-roofed 911 was improved with LED daytime running lights, smaller fog lights and LED taillights.
Also optional equipment on the Porsche 911 Targa 4 includes Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake system (PCCB), Sport Chrono Package Plus, stainless-steel exhaust pipes, Bi-Xenon headlights, self-dimming rearview mirrors, parking-assist sensors, navigation system, upgraded Bose stereo system and much more.
