The Porsche 911 Targa draws its life from under the hood with an engine developed from scratch to provide otherworldly speed and acceleration balanced with surprisingly low fuel consumption. See what this extraordinary Porsche innovation has in store when we pop the latch and take a look at what the 2019 Porsche 911 Targa 4 and Targa 4S have to offer for performance and efficiency ratings.
2019 Porsche 911 Targa 4
Priced starting at $110,300, the 2019 Porsche Targa 4 comes loaded under the hood with a twin-turbocharged boxer 6 engine good for 370 horsepower and 331 lb.-ft. of torque.
The highly-coveted model achieves a track speed of up to 179 mph with manual transmission or 178 mph with the automatic. With that standard manual transmission, the Targa 4 jolts from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. That time can be shaved down to 4.3 seconds with the automatic transmission or 4.1 seconds when you pair the automatic transmission with the Sport Chrono Package.
Behind the wheel of the Targa 4, drivers can expect to get about 19 city / 28 highway mpg with the manual transmission and 21 city / 27 highway mpg with automatic transmission.
2019 Porsche 911 Targa 4S
Priced starting at $124,300, the Targa 4S gets the same twin-turbocharged boxer 6 engine as the Targa 4 but now offers a boost in power ratings to 420 horsepower and 368 lb.-ft. of torque.
With the manual transmission, the Targa 4S achieves a top track speed of 188 mph and launches from 0 to 60 in 4.2 seconds. With the automatic transmission, the model tops out at 187 mph but makes the 0 to 60 mph dash in just 4.0 seconds. If you’re looking to slice that time down even more, the Sport Chrono Package-equipped Targa 4S with the automatic transmission makes the run in just 3.8 seconds.
Targa 4S models score EPA-estimated fuel efficiency ratings of 19 city / 28 highway mpg with the manual transmission and 21 city / 27 highway mpg with automatic transmission.
