    First Drive: Porsche 911 Coupe 3.6 Targa

    Quote:
    The new Targa 4 makes a very talented GT. It rides with more quiet compliance than any 911, and yet sacrifices almost none of the 997 coupe's body control. Over the most rutted asphalt we could find, a slight shaking of the roof structure betrayed the fact that this car, though torsionally stiffer than a 997 cabrio, is still only half as stiff as the coupe. On most roads, however, this 911 cruises with amazing refinement and yet it still has the wherewithal to entertain you superbly when prompted.

    The Targa 4 might therefore be all the 911 you ever want; not the fastest or the most visceral, but certainly the most complete car in a very impressive bunch.

    Does anybody have any accurate official data for torsional rigidity for the 997 coupe, cab & targa ??

    Re: First Drive: Porsche 911 Coupe 3.6 Targa

    Nice car very pretty. My 996 Targa did squeak and vibrate some. I am sure this is by far better.

    Re: First Drive: Porsche 911 Coupe 3.6 Targa

    Nice that the reviewer was able to see beyond the "comprimise between cab and coupe" and write about the Targa's merits.
