Detroit 2015: Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS

Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS

What do you get if you cross a Porsche 911 Targa 4 with a 911 Carrera GTS? Well, a 911 Targa 4 GTS, of course!

This variation will stand at the top of the Targa model line and gives you a cool retro roof and 316kW to play with. It’ll spit you out to 100km/h in 4.3 seconds (ugh, that’s slower than the Cayenne Turbo S) and has a top speed beyond 300km/h.

The Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS goes on sale down under in the second quarter of 2015 and is priced from $305,300.

Detroit 2015: Porsche Cayenne Turbo S

Porsche Cayenne Turbo S

Just in case anyone cares, Porsche has launched a Turbo S version of its Cayenne behemoth at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The super SUV boasts 419kW/800Nm thanks to its 4.8 litre biturbo V8, which is rather impressive. Even more so is the fact (or claim) that it can lap the Nordschleife in under eight minutes.

If you want to buy one in Australia, start getting $284,700 together and turn up to your local Porsche dealer sometime after March.


Details about the new Porsche flat-four

981 Porsche Boxster

The new flat-four cylinder engine from Porsche will underpin a variety of models and will come in three different engine capacities, Car magazine reports. All will feature direct injection and have turbochargers to achieve the peak power Porsche demands.

Kicking off the flat-four family will be a 1.6 litre engine producing 210hp (155kW), followed by a 2.0 litre offering 286hp (210kW) and topping the range will be a 360hp (265kW) 2.5 litre.

The 2.0 litre and 2.5 litre engines are expected to find their way into the next-gen Boxster and Cayman, as well as the Cayenne. We reckon the Macan should be on that list too.

It’s not clear at this stage what purpose the 1.6 litre has, although it could be earmakred for use in Volkswagen/Audi products such as the on-again, off-again Audi R4 and associated acts.
