Porsche 911 Targa

The first spy photos hit the front pages at the end of 1994, which fuel speculation: With the new 911, code-named type 993, Porsche interprets the targa concept in an entirely new way. Less than a year later, the rumours become reality. A 911 with a roof consisting of three layers of laminated safety glass goes on display at the Frankfurt International Motor Show IAA. The glass roof is bolted and bonded to the modified body of the convertible. It consists of two glass panels, the front of which is electrically activated to slide smoothly backwards within ten seconds, opening up the sky above the passenger compartment. Closed in another ten seconds at the press of a button, the noise level in the targa is almost as low as in the coupé. Thermal insulation glass, an automatically-operated window shade and an extremely efficient air-conditioning system keep temperatures inside the car pleasant regardless of weather conditions. With 4,583 units built, this 911 Targa is today one of the rarer versions of the classic sports cars.
