Just when you thought Porsche had exhausted all possible permutations of 911 variants, here come the all-wheel-drive 911 Targa 4 and Targa 4S. In its 997 incarnation, this big-sunroofed/opening rear hatch model is not available with just two-wheel drive. Like the Cabriolet, the Targa has A-pillars reinforced with ultra-strong 1.18-inch steel tubes.

The Targa 4 gets the standard 3.6-liter 325-bhp flat-six in its trunk, while the 4S enjoys 355 bhp from its 3.8-liter engine. Cosmetic changes include an aluminum strip that traces the side glass's top line from the driver's mirror up and along to the rear corner. Other usual Porsche options like ceramic brakes and the Sport Chrono Package remain on the list of things that make Porsche salespersons happy and solvent. The Targas are now in US showrooms, starting at $85,700 for the Targa 4 and $95,900 for the Targa 4S.
