Description: The most striking visual highlight of the 911 Targa is its 16.58 square-foot glass roof made up of two segments - an elegant sliding roof at the front and a more practical tailgate at the rear. The roof slides smartly beneath the tailgate within seven seconds, conveniently offering almost five square feet of open space above the passenger cabin when opened completely. The sliding roof comes standard with a new sunblind offering even greater privacy than before. When closed, the sunblind covers the entire area of the sliding roof, opening and closing electrically independently of the roof itself. The glass roof and tailgate are made of special tinted glass, which protects the occupants from UV radiation and excessive heat even in bright sunshine.
The 911 Targa is a 2-door, 4-passenger luxury sports car, available in two trims, the 4 and the 4S.
The 4 is equipped with a standard 3.6-liter, H6, 345-horsepower engine that achieves 18-mpg in the city and 25-mpg on the highway. The 4S is equipped with a standard 3.8-liter, H6, 385-horsepower engine that achieves 18-mpg in the city and 25-mpg on the highway.

Strengths: great acceleration, awesome braking, incredible handling on turns, good highspeed control
Weaknesses: Probably exspensicve maintainence, but no maintainence so far for me
Summary: Had the car for about 3 days and just loving it. It drives so beautifully and extremely smooth. The best car made for california lifestyle. I completely endorse this car and recommend to buy this car whenever possible. Faster the speed on turns, the better handling. I would definetly encourage all sports car lovers to go out and test drive it i not purchase it.
