Default Video: 2014 Porsche 991 Targa Spotted Testing

The upcoming 2014 Porsche 911 Targa was recently spotted testing for the very first with its new roof down and wearing almost no camouflage.

The following video was filmed in a district of Stuttgart, Germany and shows the new 2014 Porsche 911 Targa stuck in a traffic jam giving us our best look at the new targa roof design thus far. Recent spy shots as well as this video seem to suggest that the 2014 Porsche 991 Targa could in fact be the very next variant of the facelifted and upgraded Porsche 991 series to be released based on the minimal camouflage recent prototypes have been spotted wearing. If this is the case, then an official launch will take place just prior to the Los Angeles Motor Show in November where the 2014 Porsche 991 Targa is expected to have its world debut.

Differentiating the 2014 Porsche 991 Targa from the previous generation Porsche 997 911 Targa will be its redesigned glass roof which instead of simply sliding back like a huge sunroof on the 997-generation Targa, the 2014 Porsche 991 Targa will in fact have a removable glass panel as well as thick B-pillars wrapping around the roof.

When the 2014 Porsche 991 Targa is released in the coming months, itís expected to feature an all-wheel drive system similar to that found on the previous-generation car. The 2014 Porsche 911 Targa will then be offered with a 345hp, 3.4-liter flat-six engine and a 395hp, 3.8-liter flat-six engine from the Porsche 991 911 Cabriolet.

The top looks to harken back to the 964 and earlier targa models. Wonder if there will be a hard and soft rear window option.
