Porsche South Africa has released pricing for its new limited-run 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition.
When the Zuffenhausen-based firm’s local arm revealed pricing for its 992-generation 911 Targa variants towards the end of June 2020, the limited-run Heritage Design Edition model was shown on the website but no price was listed.
Now, however, the all-important number has been added. With a three-year Driveplan specified, pricing for the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition starts at R2 819 000 (opt for the five-year arrangement and the figure rises to R2 869 000). For the record, that’s some R510 000 more expensive than the model on which it’s based (which is now listed from R2 309 000).
While it’s not clear how many units have been set aside for South Africa, the global production run will be limited to 992 examples (fittingly matching this generation of 911’s internal model series code). The 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition will be offered with a choice of five exterior colour schemes.
You’ll find a “Porsche Heritage” badge on the engine lid grille at the rear, which harks back to the one awarded when a Porsche 356 reached 100 000 km. In addition, there’s a 1963 Porsche Crest on the bonnet, steering wheel, wheel centres and key, with the motif also embossed on the head restraints and key pouch.
The special model ships standard on 20-/21-inch Carrera Exclusive Design wheels with “classic-look” brake callipers finished in black.
Inside, you’ll notice the retro two-tone leather interior, as well as corduroy upholstery on the seats and door trims, along with a green-illuminated rev counter and stopwatch. A metal badge on the facia’s trim panel depicts the individual limited edition number.
As a reminder, the retro-themed model is powered by a 331 kW twin-turbo 3,0-litre flat-six engine. Fitted with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, this powerplant will shove the newcomer from standstill to 100 km/h in less than 3,6 seconds before topping out at 304 km/h.
