    Targa looks Interesting

    Targa looks Interesting for someone who wants the open feel of a Cab and keep the lines of a coupe .. would love to see how it looks with the top open .. looks like it will open up the car much more than the sunroof and not as much as the cab

    Re: Targa looks Interesting

    Looks like it will be a beaut.
    It would be perfect though if it comes out with that technology that ferrari used on the Superamerica- where you can get the glass to dim or be completely transparent by the push of a button.


    Re: Targa looks Interesting

    Thanks for the Pic Ocean!

    This was another dilema... wait for this or buy a Cab... I just could not wait that long...

    Do targa's come with wider bodies too?

    Re: Targa looks Interesting

    There really is no substitute for a cab in my opinion but for something in between a cab and coupe this may be a nice option for some .

    Hi!

    - Targa is wide body - you can see the black stripe below the door

    - You can dim-out the glass roof

    My thoughts exactly - you beat me to it!

    Re: Targa looks Interesting

    On sunny days with my top down going down Pacific Coast highway it is sheer bliss ..... In california my top never is up unless it is raining and that is not too often .... I think a lot depends on where you live .. kind of like owning an indoor swimming pool .

    Re: Targa looks Interesting

    ^^yup.



    Re: Targa looks Interesting

    I wasn't trying to start the cab vs. coupe debate...really.

    I understand the attraction of topless motoring as I have an M3 convertible now. For my trips down the PCH and other area twisties I would rather have a less weight and a rigid, flex and rattle-free chassis than the glorious sensations and views available without a top.

    With that said, I still wouldn't turn down a trip in a cab. Unless it's raining. Or through some SF neighborhoods. It's all about trade-off and benefit in both cases so drive what you enjoy.

    Re: Targa looks Interesting

    ^@tnunnery ^ ... yup same here

    Re: Targa looks Interesting

    Ahhh...when is the Targa going to be available and anyone have info on pricing?

    Does the added weight of the glass roof make it a little slower?

    Re: Targa looks Interesting

    I think the Targa will share the same body as the 997. I doubt it will have a wider body. Not sure thou! Im assuming its going to be slower too!
