Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS Revealed

New Cayenne Turbo S also introduced at 2015 North American International Auto Show

Porsche is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the 911’s targa top with a new variant (of course). Making its world debut at the 2015 Detroit auto show is the Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS, the latest Porsche to get the GTS treatment, which includes more power.

Specifically, the 3.8-liter flat-six puts out 430 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. It’s fast enough to propel the 911 Targa 4 GTS to 60 mph in an estimated 4.1 seconds when paired with the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox or 4.5 seconds with the seven-speed manual. For comparison, the 400-hp Targa 4S needs 4.4 seconds (PDK) and 4.6 seconds (manual) to run to 60 mph.

In addition to black 20-inch center-locking wheels, the Targa 4 GTS gets smoked-out bi-xenon headlights, GTS badges on the door, and a “Targa” logo finished in black. Pricing hasn’t been released, but expect to pay about $15,000 more than for the 2015 Targa 4S ($117,195 with manual), the current price difference between the 911 Carrera 4S and the GTS.

Also making its debut at Detroit is the Cayenne Turbo S. Porsche says the SUV will run to 60 mph in an estimated 3.8 seconds. It makes 570 hp and 590 lb-ft from its turbocharged 4.8-liter V-8. Porsche wisely makes composite ceramic brakes (10-piston calipers up front!) standard on the Cayenne Turbo S, along with LED headlights and 21-inch rims.

Fourteen years is an eternity for a chassis to remain in production without a complete redesign. We rarely see cars, even special interest or sportscars eclipsing the 10-year mark in the Japanese vehicle realm with a single chassis. Sure, it happens, but it’s not a common occurrence though Nissan seems to push those limits as

Alright, you know the drill: new car is introduced and immediately it’s regarded as the worst design of all time, a product of car X and car Y creating an unwanted baby, and, of course, the always popular, “they should have asked me to design it.” It’s expected in modern times, especially with social media’s

If there’s a Bentley Continental hovering around your neighborhood, chances are it accelerates only rapidly enough to jump in front of the next guy on its way to Starbucks for that $8 latte. It probably doesn’t have any intention of attacking the clock at a weekend track day, and certainly doesn’t aspire to climb a

Nothing makes Super Street fans angrier than a prototype or rendering and up until now, that’s all we could offer regarding the 11th gen. Honda Civic. The burnt orange Civic sedan prototype that we talked about in November of last year signified a new direction for Honda who, at least in the enthusiast market, spent

You don’t find many older Hondas in the sort of condition that this 1985 Civic 1500S was found in and, if you do, and you’re immediately hit with throwback vibes and rich memories of piloting the same sort of chassis during “spirited driving encounters” on the streets 30-or-so years prior, then you don’t let it
