Is Porsche Targa rare?
Targas are unusual and a rare sight, even if you don’t get them painted in Frozen Berry or Peridot Green. Our eyes have never adjusted to the Targa’s iconoclastic look, which is why it doesn’t get lost among black Priuses and rented Mustang convertibles. The Targa was born out of fear.
Why did Porsche make a Targa?
1967-1969 Porsche 911 Targa “Soft Window”
Buoyed by fears that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) might ban convertibles with fully retractable soft-tops, Porsche developed the first 911 Targa out of perceived necessity, and not ingenuity.
What is the difference between a Targa and Carrera?
The convertible-top Targa models are a little heavier with standard all-wheel drive while the comparable Carrera models are a little quicker. Ultimately, it’s up to you on which of these icons best fits your style and desires.
