2019 Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS Exclusive Manufaktur Edition – Video
Translated from German:
The Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur lays a new, highly refined edition model: The Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS Exclusive Manufaktur Edition was inspired by the charm of the North Sea island of Sylt. The edition is characterized by elegant design elements and exclusive features. The color combination of these vehicles is unique at Porsche: the achat gray metallic body paint is enriched with silky-gloss elements in white gold metallic as well as brilliant silver, which largely replace the black components otherwise characteristic of GTS models. Coordinated shades of brown in the interior and the soft top round off the appearance. The Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS Exclusive Manufaktur Edition was designed in collaboration with experts from Style Porsche for the German market. The delivery starts this November, the price is from 187.961,30 Euro. The Stuttgart sports car manufacturer shows the edition for the first time at “Porsche on Sylt”. The new temporary exhibition with the theme Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur will be opened in the showroom on the island.
The high craftsmanship of the small series, editions and individual customer requirements of specialized refiners Porsche is reflected in the new edition model in the love of detail. This is exemplified by the slats of the bonnet: they are painted like the lettering, model names and upper shells of the mirror panels in brilliant silver. The silver-colored tailpipes of the sports exhaust system fit into the overall picture of the Edition. Special highlights are the 20-inch alloy wheels in the RS Spyder design: They are available for the first time for a Porsche GTS model and, like the Targa temples, receive a satin-white finish in white gold metallic. The standard SportDesign package completes the customization.
The interior continues the special design concept. It is based on an interior in light brown natural leather espresso with contrasting white gold trim for the top of the dash panel, the door trim, the GT sport steering wheel and the seats. Natural leather espresso also refines the decorative panel of the control panel. The vehicle key picks up the body color. In addition, there are exclusively embroidered “911” lettering on the headrests and the embossed “Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur” for the armrest of the center console. The lettering “911 targa 4 GTS Exclusive Manufaktur Edition” decorates the interior twice: stamped on the dashboard and – in illuminated version – in the stainless steel door sills.
Limited – only not in the driving dynamics
The technical basis for the limited edition model is the sportiest and most emotional version of the 911 Targa series, the all-wheel-drive 911 Targa 4 GTS. It is aimed at ambitious drivers who appreciate a high degree of practicality. Its 3.0-liter six-cylinder twin-turbo boxer engine produces 331 kW (450 hp) and develops a maximum torque of 550 Newton meters, which is constant from 2,350 to 5,000 revolutions. The seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) is responsible for power transmission of the edition model, which combines lightning-fast gearshifts without improved traction with improved efficiency. Like the standard version, the 911 Targa 4 GTS Exclusive Manufaktur Edition accelerates from a standstill to 100 km / h in 3.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 306 km / h.
