Porsche only took the covers off its all-new 2014 911 Targa
back at January's Detroit Auto Show but a prototype for a new version has already been spotted. The prototype is wearing the revised bumpers and tail-lights seen on prototypes for facelifted versions of other 911 variants such as the Carrera
, but it’s also sporting the central-exhaust pipe design of the rumored GTS model
, hinting that the Targa may also come in GTS trim.
With the 2014 Targa, two variants are currently available: the all-wheel-drive Targa 4 and Targa 4S. The alleged GTS will bring the Targa family up to three variants, and we should eventually see rear-wheel-drive Targa and Targa S models as well. Most powerful would be the alleged Targa GTS, possibly with around 425 horsepower on tap.
Stay tuned for updates as development progresses and look for a debut of the alleged Targa GTS in the next 12-18 months. Many of the visual changes will also be applied to other Targa variants as part of the car's facelift due around the same time._______________________________________Follow Motor Authority on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
