So how’s this electronic roof going to work then?

991 Porsche 911 Targa prototype

This is one of the latest spy shots of the Porsche 911 Targa, expected to debut at the Detroit Auto Show later this month. Reports suggest the main roof panel will be removed electronically. But how?

Looking at the rear of the car you can see the engine cover looks like it will have similar opening to the 911 Cabriolet, which does fold away its roof at the touch of button. Meanwhile the spy shot after the break, which shows the Targa with the roof panel removed, the finish is neat and tidy. Suggesting the rollover hoop may somehow fold out of the way during the removal of the roof panel.

Regardless of how this system operates we trust Porsche can make it work. And for the first time, we think we’re going to genuinely lust after a 911 Targa.
