Looks sweet! I love the Targa! Too bad I can't afford one.

Thats pretty cool, ive never really been a big fan or targas because of the weight. How much more does it weigh? I ask only because im all performance oriented. I could never see myself getting some luxury car, id like a stripped racing car like the F40 (they even put a coat of paint so thin that you can see the carbon fiber through it) or a 911 gt3 rs (has a porsche sticker on the front instead of an emblem). My girlfriends completely the opposite tough, so guess what kind of car we will drive when we get old... I bet its an automatic squishy suspension car.

Very nice. I think I will eventually upgrade to a 911 and I am torn between the coupe and convertible. The targa makes a good option right in the middle, stiffer frame but still get the open cockpit feel with the roof back.

I need to see one in person and see how the air flows through that roof.

Sweet pics though.

Feh... There has not been a real Targa since 1994, they should call these models the "Big honkin glass sunroof car" cause it aint no Targa!
