The Porsche 911 Targa has a long and rich history and Jay Leno recently had the opportunity to drive the latest model in 4S guise.
Porsche unveiled the 992-generation 911 Targa 4 and 4S models back in May and most reviewers seem impressed with what the German car manufacturer has created. Sure, there are a handful of forthcoming 911 variants that will be much faster but the new Targa seems to provide just the right amount of power for most buyers.
Powering both the Targa 4 and Targa 4S models is a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six engine. Whereas the Targa 4 is capped at 380 hp at 6,500 rpm and 331 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque, the 4S that Leno tested has 444 hp and 391 lb-ft (530 Nm) of torque.
