Also. Seems to me this is a sign of things to come under VW ownership, they would sooner see a new SUV of some sort.

Not true. They fit the niche market 911 buyer who was 6 foot 7 inches and didn't like rag tops..

Targa is my favorite roof style. too bad
John Serely Jul 31, 2012
I am disappointed, I really liked the Targa

Very sad. The targa tops always looked nice. Only seen a handful of them so that's probably why

I don't think it's so much looks as it is the roof panels have problems with not fitting quite right anymore due to seals wearing out and body flexing. Plus rust likes to collect around the top as well.

Really? Why? I think this looks really good in a classic way.

In my opinion, this was the worst look for the 911. I think most collectors agree since these are the least valuable of the classic 911s.

And what a pain in the ass to fix....

It's a full glass roof. Offered since 1996 on the 993

It just looks like a moonroof what is special?
Craig Lafey Jul 31, 2012
That looks awesome

Not a particular fan on Porsche in General, but I like this model.

I'm sure it's fun to drive, but it looks like a bug now more than ever. The headlights are higher or something
Craig Lafey Jul 31, 2012
Agreed. Very nice
Bala Uncc Jul 31, 2012
This is one sexy car
Jackson Rojas Jul 31, 2012
style is the word, right
Matthew Crighton Jul 31, 2012
Oh this car is so sexy
Tonie Uy Jul 31, 2012
great looking rear!

@brad ya your right. I've only seen a couple 991s on the road and they looked amazing, but the 997s still look "new""
Brad Wood Jul 31, 2012
It's amazing how the new 991 makes the 997 look dated.
