Powered by the 345 hp engine, and featuring Porsche’s new "PDK" 7-speed dual clutch transmission, the updated 997 models were faster (0 - 62 mph in just 5.0 secs, and a top speed of 177 mph), lighter and more fuel efficient than the outgoing versions, with improved handling. The four-wheel drive cars remained distinctively wider and more purposeful, and the Targas benefited from having a more tractable suspension set-up. More traction and more fun -in any weather.
The Generation II vehicles received numerous positive reviews from the worldwide motoring press; even British motoring journalist Jeremy Clarkson, a known detractor of Porsche cars, noted that the 997 will "make love to your fingertips and stir your soul."
The 997 Targas are equipped with a 1.54 sq/m glass roof and hatch. At any speed, the roof can be opened in just 7 secs, to slide back underneath the hatch. When the glass roof is retracted, a small glass deflector is raised above the windshield to aid aerodynamic stability, whilst still retaining that wonderful wind-in-the-hair experience. The glass itself incorporates a UV filter to keep temperatures comfortable in the cabin, letting through only 17 percent of the thermal energy of sunlight.
Supplied new by Porsche Centre Reading in October 2009, the vehicle has benefitted from Porsche main dealer servicing and is complete with its drivers’ book pack and spare key. Available to view now at our London showrooms.
