We are pleased to offer a fully-specified 997 Generation II Targa 4 PDK, in a special colour combination, that boasts an excellent optional factory specification.
During 2009 Porsche updated its 997 model line-up, which included styling changes, a revised engine (340 HP), direct fuel injection and the introduction of the company’s new “PDK” 7-speed dual clutch transmission. As a result, the updated 997 models were faster (0 – 60 mph in just 5.0 secs, 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.
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 a 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 Sutton Coldfield in 2009, the vehicle has benefitted from regular servicing. It has had only 2 keepers, and is complete with its drivers’ book pack and spare key and VTS fob.
