Paying tribute to tradition: the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design edition

TORONTO, June 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A state-of-the-art 911 with design elements from the 1950s and early 1960s: Porsche presents the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design edition as the first of four collector's models from the Heritage Design strategy. Historical exterior and interior design elements have been reinterpreted and combined with the latest technology in an exclusive special edition from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. It is now available to order and will be in Canada from fall 2020 with pricing starting at $205,900. The edition is limited to 992 models, matching the internal model series abbreviation. Along with the introduction of the special edition, selected interior elements will be available as part of the Heritage Design package for all current 911 models. Porsche Design has created a high-quality chronograph, also a limited edition, exclusively for anyone purchasing the collector's model.
a??We are evoking memories of the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s in customers and fans with the Heritage Design models. No brand can translate these elements into the modern day as well as Porsche. In this way, we are fulfilling the wishes of our customers. With the exclusive special editions, we are also establishing a new product line which stands for the a??lifestylea?? dimension in our product strategy,a?? says Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG.Exclusive paintwork in Cherry Metallic and four other available exterior colours along with gold logos create an authentic look in the 1950s style. The exterior of the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design edition features high-quality white livery with a historical design. The spear-shaped graphic motorsports elements on the front wings are particularly striking. These a??spearsa?? recall the early days of Porsche motorsports. A further highlight is the Porsche Heritage badge on the engine lid grill in the rear, which is reminiscent of the one that was awarded back in the day when a Porsche 356 reached the 100,000 kilometers mark. The quality seal from the past a?? with a modern twist a?? will grace the rear of all four Porsche Heritage Design models. A further connection between past and present is provided by the historical Porsche Crest of 1963 on the bonnet, steering wheel, wheel hub covers and vehicle key, and embossed on the head restraints and key pouch, along with the standard 20/21-inch Carrera Exclusive Design wheels and the Black classic-look brake calipers.A A The interior also pays tribute to the past: the exclusive two-tone leather interior combines Bordeaux Red leather with OLEA club leather in Atacama Beige or Black leather with OLEA club leather in Atacama Beige. The use of corduroy on seats and door trims signals the return of a material already used in the Porsche 356, reviving the zeitgeist and fashion of the 1950s. The rev counter and stopwatch in a classic look with green illumination underline the emotive nature of the concept in the same way as the perforated roof liner in microfibre fabric and extensive Exclusive Manufaktur leather trim. A metal badge on the trim panel of the dashboard visualizes the individual limited edition number.The first Heritage Design model is based on the new 911 Targa of the 992 generation introduced just days ago, and has been equipped with the latest technologies for chassis, assistance systems and infotainment. A 443 HP twin-turbo engine powers it. Combined with the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, the high-tech boxer engine can reach a maximum speed of over 304 km/h and accelerates the 911 Targa (with Launch Control) from zero to 100 km/h in less than 3.6 seconds.
