Before the 993 Targa came along with its fancy sliding glass roof, Porsche 911 Targas had real lift-out tops, just like the best 1990′s Japanese sports cars did (no doubt emulating what was perceived to be a suave alternative to a real ragtop). It looks like the 991 Targa will be returning to those roots.
Spy shots over at Autocar seem to indicate a lift-out roof for the next Targa, and the classic looking B-pillar is another giveaway. Hopefully, we’ll be able to order Fuchs wheels and an industrial-sized can of aerosol hairspray to keep things authentic. Bring your own car-phone. The Targa is said to debut at the Los Angeles auto show in November, alongside the Porsche Macan SUV.
