Well, here it is – the all-new 8th Generation Porsche 911. No really, we promise it’s the new one!
As is always the case with Porsche’s 911, it’s a case of evolution rather than revolution so we have a car that to the casual observer looks almost identical to the previous 911, but is comprehensively improved in every area.
As seems to be the trend, the new 911 grows – the wheelbase is longer and crucially all 911s now have the wide-body previously reserved for the 4WD models. But power is also up across the board, with this Targa 4S model’s 3.0-litre turbocharged flat-six now producing 444bhp and 530Nm – that’s enough for 0-62mph in just 3.8 seconds (or 3.6 seconds if you choose the Sport Chrono option) thanks to this model’s 4WD setup giving superior traction off the line.
There’s a whole host of new tech for the revised interior too, but basically, this is New 911 just as it always was – pretty much the best all-round sports car on sale today.
The fact that this is the Targa model means you get the best of both worlds - with the roof up you have the sound deadening, security and rigidity of the coupe, but then the fancy roof mechanism does its thing and you have wind in the hair motoring with that classic Targa look.
