    911 Targa 4S Exclusive Mayfair Edition

    I am thinking of this for my wife and fully realise its a colossal piece of marketing, but for those of us who cannot get a GT3RS or 991R as a last hurrah for naturally aspirated 911's what do people think?

    When I was OPC Mayfair about 3 weeks ago, they had 1 in the showroom. Back in late summer, they had 3.

    I suspect they will take an offer on the last one.

    I don't think it has any real collectibility status as it's just lots of Porsche Exclusive bits.

    Better get her a Targa GTS if you find a new one somewhere...same thing and I doubt the Mayfair Edition will become a collectible (however, you never know... Smiley). I love my 991 GTS Cab and my wife also loves driving it, actually she wants to buy it out when the lease ends, so I can concentrate on a new toy. Smiley

    I know that you can easily afford the Targa 4S Mayfair Edition but for the money you save, better buy her a nice ring or whatever she fancies. Smiley You could also get her a GTS Cab and you save even more...

    OK  - I pulled the trigger and am delighted that I did. The car is really a very special place to sit in and drive. There are a whole host of (expensive ) little details that make it worthwhile  - I plan to keep it a long time so the uniqueness  of the  interior design elements and the fact that  it is naturally aspirated will make up for the huge price hike over a normal 991.1 Targa 4 GTS (power upgrade and ceramics are on this car). The car has to be in Sports mode or Sport Plus mode  to be really enjoyed when the engine response and exhaust sound (sports exhaust fitted on this car) are wonderful. Its great to be in a 911 again after a big gap since my 997.1 Turbo. The only slight negative is the speed of the gear changes in manual mode  - they seem distinctly slower than McLaren/ Ferrari ( and Yes I know that is not the case on the GT3 or GT3RS). Here are some photos:

    That Dogtooth material still looks good.  kiss

    Next thing we know they'll bring back the Pasha Velour check seats. If they do, I want the blue/black option.

    Isn't it houndstooth??  No matter, the interior does look good - almost the same as the 50th Anniversary special cars, which I found very tasteful (and for a while seriously considered buying).   Nice overall package and I see why this may be a longer term car.

    Houndstooth seat inserts look great. May your next one have fine black corduroy. indecision   All up it looks smashing, enjoy!

    Yes, of course it is. I just knew "dogtooth" didn't sound right.  Smiley

    I'm still going to refer to my spaniel as a "dog" though so he doesn't get any exaggerated ideas about his fox-hunting abilities.

    Odd to think that I've sat in this very car (assuming it was in the Mayfair showroom?)

    Congrats - hope you enjoy the theatre of the roof mechanism for many years to come!

    A friend of mine who was in London a few weeks ago, came back and told me he saw a very special Targa in the Mayfair showroom. Talked to the sales lady about it etc.... and then asked me loads of questions about that model .

    Great to see it went to an RT member Smiley

    @ Gnil and @ bridggar - there were three left until recently  - all sold now - that's what the advent of baby Turbo engines does  Smiley. I asked for the "newest" one  - which came from Reading.


    Re: 911 Targa 4S Exclusive Mayfair Edition

    Congrats. I love that interior - looks amazing! Enjoy her and drive safely.


    Re: 911 Targa 4S Exclusive Mayfair Edition

    congrats.  love the houndstooth trim!   still looks great in a modern Porsche. 

    I love the shape of the targa, shame we rarely see it in Oz sue to it's high price.

     

    whats the decal "Florie" mean on the side door?  is that an exclusive option?

    The Florio is a nod to the Targa Florio race that Porsche dominated in the 60s and where the Targa name comes from.

    Congrats Crayphile, very nice 911.  Pepita seats and PTS make it very unique. Do you have by chance the PTS code? Which silver is that?   Btw in 2016 it will be exactly 60 years from the first Porsche win at the Targa Florio with a 550 Spyder.
