Porsche knows how to over-engineer a car. We thank them every day for over-engineering a targa top. Specifically, the top of the 2014 911 Targa. It's bonkers-brilliant.
This is the 2014 Porsche 911 Targa, which has landed on the internet hours before its Detroit Auto Show debut later today. It looks like a 911 Targa, which is a change from the sliding glass roof models that have been badged as targas for the last couple of decades.
The Porsche Targas of old had a lift out center section to let that sweet, sweet summer air and flat six wail surround you. The last two Targas had a sliding glass roof, which just didn't do it. The new Targa brings back the romance of the past.
