Background
Production of the second generation 997 series 911 Targa 4S began in 2009, it featured an all new engine with Direct Fuel Injection DFI which is mounted 10mm lower in the car, revised suspension system, new front bumper with larger air intakes, LED rear and front daylight running lights, all new Porsche Communication Management PCM System with touchscreen, hard drive navigation and Bluetooth.

“Behind the second-generation 997’s redesign lies one of the most significant sports cars of the moment. The 911 has always made sense for its practicality and dynamism, but now it’s even more polished, even quicker and significantly greener. It’s even better to drive. Porsche has played down the changes to the suspension, but they have completely eliminated the old car’s tendency to bob its nose up and down in response to changes in road surface and elevation. So you can lean on the front end with far more confidence now, while the 911’s trademark steering remains intact, offering stacks of feedback and instant turn-in. It’s pliant and handles brilliantly – a great mix.”
CAR Magazine 2008

Exterior
Our hand selected Porsche 911 Targa 4S looks stunning in its gloss coat of Carrara White, a striking colour for the 997.2, especially with the red strip reflector on the rear of the wider bodyshell. The 19-inch Sport Design lightweight alloy wheels finished in Agate Grey Metallic are the perfect contrast to the paintwork. The paintwork condition is excellent, with no blemishes on any panel. The 911 Targa 4S has been waxed by us, which will help protect the paintwork and repel surface contaminants. All the trim has a perfect finish, as do the front and clear rear lights, which are free from any damage or moisture buildup. The windows drop as they should when you open the door. The engine and boot struts also operate as they should. The glass Targa roof operates as it should, as does the soft-close rear hatch.

Interior
The 16-way Adaptive Hardback Sports Seats come with Carrara White seatbacks, optional 2-stage Heating and Porsche Crest Embossed headrests, and just like the rest of the special order Carrera Red Natural leather interior, are in excellent condition and provide a perfect contrast to the Carrara White bodywork. There are numerous exclusive factory options that enhance the Targa 4S further over other examples, including silver seat belts, GT Silver centre console, GT Silver control panel, silver dials, aluminium PDK selector and handbrake. There are no marks or signs of wear to any of the trim, panels or switchgear, with the leather retaining a wholly fresh appearance throughout.

Engine and Transmission
Our 911 Targa 4S is equipped with the 3.8 litre flat six DFI engine, which addressed all previous weaknesses of the 996 and 997 first generation engines. The 911 Targa 4S engine produces 385bhp and 310ft-lb of torque. The axle load distribution of approximately 40:60 ensures high directional stability and superb road behaviour. The engine starts cleanly when cold or hot, there is no smoke whatsoever either at startup or when driving. There are no unusual sounds or rattles when the engine is running. It is equipped with the highly desired switchable sports suspension system PASM, which includes the dashboard switch that stiffens the suspension in an instant, increasing connection to the road. PASM equipped cars also sit 10mm lower than non PASM cars. The Targa 4S is also fitted with Sport Chrono Package Plus, which adds a SPORT and SPORT PLUS button that sharpen the throttle response, decreases shift speeds, hold gears for longer and blips the throttle on downshifts whilst also adding a dashboard mounted stopwatch to add to the sporting image of the 4S.

The optional 7-speed double-clutch PDK transmission system provides instant changes, unleashing the power of the engine with minimal fuss. Because it has been specified in combination with Sport Chrono Package Plus, it unlocks additional shift speeds in both SPORT PLUS and LAUNCH CONTROL modes. These modes are only available with these options selected from the factory along with PDK. They enable the Targa 4S to respond and accelerate faster than the standard car, reducing the in-gear acceleration and the headline 0-60mph time by 0.4 seconds to just 4.4 seconds.

Another addition is the exceptional Porsche Switchable Sports Exhaust PSE which significantly improves the sound of the 911 on any journey, without being too loud or intrusive. The mechanically locking rear limited-slip differential is also a choice addition to the equipment list on this 911 Targa 4S.

Wheels, Tyres and Brakes
Our 911 Targa 4S comes fitted with the optional 19-inch Sport Design lightweight alloy wheels finished in Agate Grey Metallic, which are unmarked, free of damage and corrosion. The brake callipers are finished in Guards Red with PORSCHE lettering in White. The brake discs and pads are in good condition with minimal wear. The tyres are Michelin Pilot Sport 4S high performance tyres, with lots of tread left all round as they were recently replaced in 2022.

History File
This 997.2 Targa 4S has a full Porsche Main Dealer OPC and Specialist Service History, with invoices and fully stamped service book. The 911 was last serviced at 72,695 miles in August 2021, which also included a four wheel alignment, it also had the 12-year PDK service in October 2021, which included the PDK Fluid, Sump and Filter as well as the Front Differential Fluid Change.
