Porsche just recently released some photos of their new Targa variant for their facelifted 997 models. As with all of the facelifted 997 models, the 2009 Porsche 911 Targa will receive the new Direct Fuel Injection engines and have its current Tiptronic S transmission replaced by Porsche’s 7-speed double clutch gearbox.

The Targa has a 1.5 square meter glass sliding roof has two components: the glass sliding roof and the top tailgate. The glass roof slides beneath the tailgate in 7 seconds. The glass roof and tailgate’s glass are made of specially-treated glass designed to effectively deflect and repel UV radiation to avoid excessive cabin heat.

The Targa models are only available in all-wheel drive. (ie Targa 4 or Targa 4S)

The 2009 Porsche 911 Targa 4 features a 3.6 liter 6 cylinder boxer engine yielding 345 hp. The manual transmission model takes it from 0 to 60mph in 5.2 seconds, but when equipped with the 7-speed twin clutch PDK gearbox, this time is cut down to 5.0 seconds.

The 2009 Porsche 911 Targa 4S has a 3.8 liter pumping out 385 hp and with it’s manual transmission 0 to 60mph is achieved in 4.9 seconds, give it the PDK gearbox and you get 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds!

The 2009 Porsche 911 Targa 4 is priced from $145,000 and the Targa 4s will start around $165,000.
