Spy Shots: Uncovered Porsche 911 Targa Spotted in Sweden

By SEMA News Editors

Porsche is working on updating the current 911 lineup and SEMA News sources recently captured images of a Targa model prototype on the roads in northern Sweden.

The recent sighting was the first of the uncovered 911 Targa, revealing its updated design without camouflage, except for the decal covers on the headlights and the Porsche and Targa logos on the rear and B-pillar.

The refresh introduces a new front bumper design featuring vertical slats in its air intakes. This alteration was necessary to accommodate the integration of vertical and active slats, differing from the design of the current model, sources said. The rear bumper will also undergo some modifications, particularly in its lower section, as will the rear air outlets of the engine cover.

According to anonymous company insiders, the base variant of the 911 (which isn't the model seen here) is rumored to revert to naturally aspirated engines. Speculation suggests that the base model might adopt an engine derived from the 4.0L unit but with a smaller displacement.
