Porsche have just released one of the prettiest tribute car of 2020
Whenever you are heading to a dealership or looking online to buy a car, you will always do your best to make sure you have a vehicle that you like. If you are lucky enough to build a car from scratch, then chances are you will add touches and traits to make sure you have a car like no else and unique to you. A privilege yes, but even more so when a manufacturer builds one for you in limited numbers. Following the launch of the new 992 Targa, today we see the introduction of the new Heritage Design Edition.
With one of the world’s richest histories in motorsport and car making, we do owe it to Porsche for continuing as long as they have. Perfecting the greatest sports car to man is no easy task, and I can go as far as saying that even the most basic Porsche is very good in its natural form.
Combining this and the history of the 50s and 60s, the new Targa 4S Heritage Edition will recieve unique paintwork in Cherry Metallic as well as four other exterior colours that are combined with gold logos.
The Heritage Design Edition Targa features lots of tributes from the era it came from including racecar-like livery in white, with a historical design, spear-shaped graphic motorsports elements on the front wings and a heritage badge on the luggage compartment grille, which was the one that was awarded back in the day when a Porsche 356 reached the 100,000 kilometres mark.
All these design cues can be found around the car, but most notable are the new model’s standard 20/21-inch Carrera Exclusive Design wheels and classic-look brake callipers finished in black.
The interior receives a new and exclusive two-tone leather interior in Bordeaux Red with Atacama Beige or Black leather with Atacama Beige. The use of corduroy on seats and door trims signals the return of a material used in the Porsche 356.
If you know your older Porsches then you will recognize the classic looks of the green-illuminated rev counter and stopwatch and since this is a limited edition model, a metal badge on the trim panel of the dashboard records the individual limited edition number.
The Targa Heritage Edition is only available in 4S, which means that being all-wheel drive, powering it will be the new 3 litre 331 kW biturbo boxer engine with the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, accelerates the 911 Targa from 0-100 km/h in less than 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 304 km/h.
Exclusive, gorgeous to look at and unique. What do you think of the Heritage Edition?
