|Porsche Centre Bahrain welcomes an exciting arrival. Looks, performance and efficiency are just a few words that can be used to describe the new Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS.
This seductive, head-turning, mean machine wears the GTS badge for the first time in its history, and its combination of class and capability makes it the most dynamic Targa to date, its makers say.
The concept of the Targa, which made its debut in 1965, delivers safe driving enjoyment with all-wheel drive and a wide rollover protection bar. Its retractable roof, which opens and closes in just 19 seconds, adds an element of fun.
Ironic as it may seem, Porsche’s future lies in its past by taking design cues from classic models and bringing them into the 21st century, building upon the sporty heritage.
Colin Sattar, brand manager at Porsche Centre Bahrain, says: “The 911 Targa 4 GTS personifies the brand’s heritage in creating true sports cars for every day; delivering the latest in motor sport technology in the comfort, safety and luxury of a road car.
“Its iconic roof concept provides the ultimate in automotive enjoyment, whilst the GTS badge it wears with pride signifies unrivalled driving dynamics and performance. This is an exquisitely styled addition to our model line-up – and the GTS family – and I look forward to seeing it welcomed to Bahrain with much excitement.”
The GTS is the most dynamic in the range with a 430bhp engine taking the car from 0 to 100kmph in 4.3 seconds thanks to the standard Sport Chrono package, chassis and PDK transmission. Despite its additional 30bhp of power, its combined fuel consumption equals that of the 911 Targa 4S.
Unmistakable as a GTS, the front view is defined by the sport design of the front end with an opening for the auxiliary middle radiator and smoked bi-xenon headlights with the Porsche Dynamic Light System. Side-on, the car’s characteristic GTS attributes are the silky gloss black 20-inch 911 Turbo S wheels with central locks, sport design door mirrors and GTS signatures on the doors.
This model combines capability with comfort, and the four-way adjustable Sport Plus front seats – with their black GTS logos on the head restraints – provide additional lateral support and long-distance cruising comfort for the driver and passenger.
The new 911 Targa 4 GTS is available at Porsche Centre Bahrain with a basic retail price of BD53,700.
