Porsche has sought to marry the past and the present again this week, with the unveiling of its new 911 Targa at the Detroit Auto Show.

The new version’s styling is a nod to the original 911 Targa of 1965, but in a first for a Porsche Targa model, it also features an electronically-controlled opening roof.

In classic Targa style, a wide bar behind the driver and front-seat passenger sits in place of a B-pillar, while a wrap-around glass section acts as the rear windscreen and C-pillar.

At the push of a button, the roof section - which was teased in a video from Porsche last week - is automatically stowed behind the rear seat.

The new Targa is largely based on the Carrera 4 cabriolet models and offers a choice of two variants, both with all-wheel-drive.

The ‘entry-level’ Targa 4 is powered by a 3.4 litre six-cylinder engine producing 257kW and is available with a seven-speed manual or Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) dual-clutch automatic.

Fuel consumption is listed at 8.7 l/100km for the manual and 9.5 l/100km for the PDK.

When fitted with the PDK and optional Sport Chrono pack, the Targa 4 can achieve 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds, with a top speed of 280km/h for the PDK and 282km/h for the manual.

The range-topping Targa 4S gets the same transmission options with a larger 3.8 litre six-cylinder engine producing 294kW. The 3.8 litre power plant improves the 0-100km/h time with the PDK and Sport Chrono pack by 0.4 seconds.

Top speed for the Targa 4S increases to 296km/h for the manual and 293km/h for the PDK, while fuel consumption is listed at 9.2 l/100km and 10 l/100km respectively.

Deliveries of the 2014 Porsche 911 Targa 4 and Targa 4S to Australia begin mid-year, with pricing starting from $247,900 plus on-roads.
