Porsche has confirmed the 2015 911 Targa will greet the public for the first time at next month’s Detroit Motor Show.
Porsche is not releasing any details about the convertible but a batch of leaked images posted online by a French television station reveal the 911 Targa will be identical to the existing coupe and convertible variants from the rocker panels up to the belt line. Above that, it will gain a large wraparound rear window and a roll bar adorned by three small vertical air vents, design cues that characterized the first 911 Targa that bowed in 1967.
The roof panel directly above the occupants’ heads will be removable and likely made out of a lightweight material such as aluminum. The interior is not expected to undergo any major interior modifications, meaning its dashboard will be nearly identical to the one found in 911 Convertible.
Look for official details about the Porsche 911 Targa to emerge in the weeks leading up to its debut in Michigan next month. The car is expected to land in Porsche showrooms around the world by the middle of next summer at the latest.
