Porsche Targa X France Gall: the birth of a myth

Launched in 1965, the first Porsche 911 Targa caught the eye of a young promising singer, France Gall. Described as a “convertible with a safety hoop”, this car brought together the best of the two worlds: you could ride with your hair in the wind with no worry that someone would cut the soft top of your car with a knife (that happens!). With a few new improvements, the Targa evolved to give birth to the 992 model by the following summer. Reaching 450hp, the brand new 4S can not only exceed the 300 km/h limit but also goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 3,6 seconds. With a large body and air intake, this new Targa is also a four-wheel drive equipped with with a “wet mode” that allows tires to stick to the road in case of rain. More exclusive than a convertible and with more character than a sports coupé, the Targa might just be the coolest of the Porsche collection! It was certainly tennis player Martina Navratilova’s opinion when she, also, was one of its ambassadors back in 1983.
