Porsche 911 Targa 4S “Exclusive Design Edition” Is Cool in So Many Ways

Hats off to Porsche Exclusive for turning up the coolness dial on the 911 Targa

The latest Porsche 911 Targa is arguably one of the most desirable 991 models, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be made more appealing.

Usually, that’s the job of Porsche Exclusive, the division that takes stock models and modifies them to suit customers’ wishes. Their latest work is a limited edition of the 911 Targa 4S called Exclusive Design Edition.

Scheduled to debut at the AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix (August 12-14) at the Nürburgring, the 911 Targa 4S Exclusive Design Edition features a series of unique design cues, starting with the Etna Blue color which was the standard hue for the Porsche 356 B (T5) in 1960 and 1961.

The smoked LED headlights contrast with the body color, with added contrast coming from the Targa bar, 20-inch RS Spyder wheels and Porsche side decal — all in white gold metallic. Many exterior details, such as the front spoiler, covers for the headlight washer system and “targa” logo, are painted in the vehicle's color.

At the rear, the apron, Porsche logo and model designation are also colored in Etna Blue, while the quad tailpipes and rear lid grille come in black.

Unique touches inside include a graphite-blue leather upholstery, 18-way adjustable Sports Seats Plus, headrests embossed with the Porsche logo and a 911 Targa silhouette on the center console. The seats feature decorative stitching in Provence blue, with the same color being used for the air nozzle slats and floor mat trim.

No changes were made to the 3.0-liter bi-turbo boxer engine, which produces 420 PS (414 hp) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. Mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed PDK transmission, the 911 Targa 4S goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 303 km/h (188 mph).

The special edition model is only available for a short time, so if you’re interested you should hurry up.
