    Change of PCM main screen . Thank you for the suggestion. I had not time to try it, but you can be sure I will.

    Re: New targa 4S pics in real world

    That was the exact color combo I wanted to order, but without finding any pics of the 2-tone interior, I stuck with all beige. If only I had seen this earlier.

    Good luck

    Question is : Is there any chance to get a few pictures from both the inside and outside with the roof retracted?
    Here we go:



    Thanks for posting those sweet pictures of the Targa top retracted. Wow! Just stunning.

    Re: New targa 4S pics in real world

    Beautiful combo and fantastic pics thx!

    Re: New targa 4S pics in real world

    Wow - now I gotta get me one!!!

    Re: New targa 4S pics in real world

    Carlos:

    As a current 996 Targa owner and a future 997 Targa owner, I'm very jealous. Your car is beautiful.

    I do have a couple of questions, though.

    Is that the standard shifter, or is it the aluminium one? (sorry, my German isn't good enough to understand your options post)

    Also, how does the roof and shade mechanism work? I know that the button is now located on the rear console, but does the single button control both the roof and the shade? Also, is there now a one-touch open/close function like the windows, or do you have to hold the button as the roof is opening and closing?

    Viel danken.

    My 997s 05 doesnt have this.....



    Like altak wrote, I don't have that "vent" on the passenger side of the console. Is that for climate control?

    Re: New targa 4S pics in real world

    SWEET SWEET SWEET
    Gotta love that Midnight Blue
    The Targas debut, and what a COOL debut it is.
    Enjoy this car, looks great, wheels rock, interior color compliments..OMG, the stripe is even doable

    Re: New targa 4S pics in real world

    thanks for the new photos

    Re: New targa 4S pics in real world

    Simply gorgeous. Thanks for posting these delightful photos! Your car looks very classy indeed.

    IMO the 997 Targa has got to be the most beautiful 911 Targa ever. I'm so glad Porsche invested in this model and gave it the looks and image it deserves.

    I'm not Carlos, but I believe I can answer your questions.

    1) The Aluminium shifter is an Exclusive option. It is different from the regular optional shifter. I believe it's genuine aluminium, instead of alu-colored plastic.

    2) The shade and roof are operated with a single button. Press it, and the shade starts rolling back. Press it longer, and the roof starts opening after the shade is gone.
    From that, I'd gather you have to hold down the button until the roof is completely down. (I haven't tested myself, though, so I'll wait for Carlos to return and correct me ).

    Re: New targa 4S pics in real world

    LOOOOOOVE the two tone interior!

    Thanks Groom, but can you tell me whether Carlos's shifter is the Exclusive one or the standard one?

    Woofer!

    No it's the woofer for the Bose sound system. In the Targa and the Cab there's no room for the woofer behind the rear seats, as there is in the Coupe, so they put it in the passenger footwell.

    Re: Woofer!

    Looks great - nice pictures!

    Re: Woofer!

    Beautiful. Great job! Of course, you chose the best color!

    Re: Woofer!

    Gorgeous!!!

    I love the chrome stripe- great touch.

    Thank You The Groom to answer these questions. You are right. The button of the panorama roof is quite tricky at the beginning. You have to get used to it.
    I came home this eveniging from a fantastic 3 day travel through Switzerland with the new Targa 4S. Let me say that I had quite a few supercars in my life, but this is the best I ever drove on a public road. I will enter in more specific details in a report, but i need a few days to prepare it, because I have to write it first in french and translate it afterwards in englisch.
    It first started at lake Neuchâtel where I live.
    I thaught The "bum thread fetichists" might have pleasure to see this pic:

    Re: New targa 4S pics in real world

    Then I drove to Bern and Thun where starts one of the sort of "tail of the dragon" of Switherland on the north side of the lake Thun.
    I thought Vincenzina would like this, no..no Vincenzina, the Castel..., not the stripe...

    Re: New targa 4S pics in real world

    GREAT looking car, nice color combo and amazing interior You're a man of very good taste, congrats.
