The Porsche 911 Targa Facelift 2024 has also appeared in freezing Sweden. This more suggestive version of the German sports car has joined the winter tests, revealing interesting details of its renewed image. A very particular model that will bet on a more aggressive and differentiated style.
The winter testing season is more than fruitful for Porsche. The German brand has filled the roads of the Arctic Circle with the significant deployment of prototypes, especially one of the reference models, the 911. On the icy roads, we have seen test units of the facelift that is undergoing the Coupé, Cabrio, Turbo, and GT3 Touring, plus the new Dakar and the ST that have not yet been presented.
Now it is the turn of the Porsche 911 Targa Facelift 2024, one of the versions that are on sale and had not yet made an appearance in the demanding winter tests, also posing in his first spy photos. A facelift in which you can already see some of the new features that will offer this 911 Targa. For example, its darkened headlights are equipped with the new lighting technology “HD Matrix LED” that have a new form of the four cardinal points characteristic of the German brand.
But more striking is the design of the entirely new bumper. The central part is common to other units sighted where the radar sensors of the driving assistants are housed. The shape of the air intakes is more rectangular, higher, and with two thin parallel horizontal slats instead of the current three, leaving more sight of the radiators of the intercoolers, even being able to see that does not have the vertical hatches of the new active louvers installed to improve aerodynamics that has been seen in other test units.
From behind, the restyled 911 Targa also lets’s see that the camouflage extends to the corners of the thinner taillights, as well as the central part that will follow the style of the Taycan. The camouflage also covers the bumper preventing seeing its new lines and although the sports exhaust system exhausts maintain their position and their elliptical trim, you can see that, in addition to a special piece that hides a redesigned central part, is a whole new set integrated into the skirt.
The Porsche 911 Targa will arrive in 2024 with a more efficient engine.
The 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder boxer engine will be revised to offer extra performance while lowering fuel consumption and pollutant emissions figures. A version that is expected to feature micro-hybrid technology to achieve this goal, and a small 48V battery to provide extra power and torque in special situations. These improvements will also be accompanied by a new chassis tuning, which we expect to see in the middle of 2024 in dealerships.
