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 Carrara White, a striking colour for the 997.2, especially with the red strip reflector on the rear of the wider bodyshell. The Porsche Exclusive Order 19-inch Carrera Sport lightweight alloy wheels finished in Gloss Black with a diamond finished edge are the perfect contrast to the paintwork. The Exclusive Order Targa 4S Decorative Side Stripes also add to the aesthetic appeal of this example. The paintwork condition is excellent, with no blemishes on any panel. The 911 Targa 4S has been waxed with Autoglym Ultra High Definition Wax 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 12-way Electric Leather Seats come with the Lumbar Support System and drivers seat/mirror memory, and just like the rest of the leather interior, are in excellent condition and provide a perfect contrast to the Carrara White bodywork. There are some exclusive factory options that enhance the Targa 4S further over other examples, Carrara White Instrument Dials and Carrara White Centre Console. 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.

Our 911 Targa 4S is equipped with the switchable sports suspension system PASM, which includes the dashboard switch that stiffens the suspension in an instant, increasing connection to the road.

The 911 Carrera is also equipped with the highly desired Porsche Switchable Exhaust (PSE) system, which unleashes a more sporty sound both on acceleration and lift off.

With its compact design and low weight, the 6 speed manual gearbox is a simple, direct way to tap into the power of the 911 Targa 4S. The manual transmission system provides short gearshift travel and precise lever movement, giving you the highest possible level of accessibility with the minimum of fuss.

Wheels, Tyres and Brakes
Our 911 Targa 4S comes fitted with the optional 19-inch Carrera Sport Lightweight Alloy Wheels in Gloss Black spokes and a Diamond Finished edge, which are original, unmarked, free of damage and corrosion. The brake discs and pads are in good condition with minimal wear. The tyres are Pirelli P Zero high performance tyres with plenty of tread all round.
