If exclusivity & a penchant for the Porsche heritage is your thing, then the 2020 Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition is something you'd definitely be interested in...
Last month, Porsche pulled the wraps off the all-new 992-gen 911 Targa 4 & 4S. The folks from Stuttgart had also said that there will be a bespoke special edition version of the 911 Targa 4S that will be revealed in June 2020, and it's finally here – the 2020 Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition.
As the name suggests, the key purpose behind Porsche's Heritage Design Editions (created by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur) is to offer its customers the ultimate blend of the brand's modern technology and rich heritage. So, while you get the latest in terms of features & drivetrain, the Heritage Design Editions also include bespoke styling cues from Porsche's famed motorsport history and iconic models of the past. The 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition is no different.
The Heritage Design 911 Targa 4S' most striking visual updates come in the form of white livery on the sides (inspired by Porsche's motorsport history), gold-finish emblems & badges all around, and spear-shaped graphic elements on the front wings, again inspired by the company's motorsport heritage. It even gets a historic 1963 Porsche Crest on the bonnet, steering wheel, wheel centres and vehicle key. The crest has also been embossed on the head restraints and key pouch.
Inside, the dual-tone interior (Bordeaux Red/Atacama Beige or Black/Atacama Beige) harks back to the Porsche 356, thanks to the use of materials like corduroy on the seats & door panels and a microfibre fabric for the roof liner. To further emphasise the Design Edition's lifestyle-oriented appeal, Porsche will also offer all the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition customers a custom-made chronograph watch to go with the vehicle's theme.
Mechanically, the Heritage Design Edition remains unchanged. It's powered by the same 3.0-litre twin-turbo flat-six motor as the standard 911 Targa 4S, which produces 444bhp & 530Nm of torque. Though there's an option of a seven-speed manual gearbox on the 911 Targa 4S, the Heritage Design Edition is likely to go on sale only with the 8-speed PDK automatic.
Apart from candy metallic, the Heritage Design Edition can be ordered in four other exclusive paint shades. Only 992 units of the car will be commissioned.
