2002 Porsche 911 Targa

The 2002 911 Targa updates a sliding glass roof design first used on the previous-generation 911 Targa, offered in the U.S. in 1996 and 1997. The all-new 911 Targa shares the new 3.6-liter, 320-horsepower engine, 911 Turbo-inspired front-end styling and interior enhancements with the redesigned 911 Carrera models that Porsche introduced for 2002. The new engine makes these the most powerful normally aspirated 911 models ever offered in North America. In profile, the 911 Targa can be distinguished by its sharply tapered rear side glass.

The new Targa expands on the concept of the previous model, which introduced a large power-operated sliding glass roof that slid under the rear window. The biggest difference from the previous 911 Carrera Targa is that the rear window in the new model is hinged to open, providing convenient access to the rear luggage compartment.
