2008 Porsche 911 (997.1) Targa 4 6-Speed: With its distinctive, model-specific, flowing arch characterized by bright-finished trim, the Targa's understatedly eye-catching concept allows for the enjoyment of the open-air whilst still retaining the 911's signature coupe proportions that are further exaggerated by way of the rear's iconic and intriguingly protruding widebody.
With the Targa, practicality is pushed as the convenience level is heightened by virtue of a rear glass lid that opens in true hatch fashion revealing a parcel shelf and with the rear seatbacks folded, usability only increases! Stepping inside is where the charming nature of the Targa becomes even more apparent as the nearly seamless glass roof offers panoramic views and adds an a unique element to the 911's lauded driving experience.
Elevating the model's specialness is its scarcity, production of the 997 began in 2006 and concluded in 2012 with about 2,571 units having left Stuttgart as Targa 4 models with approximately 545 Targa 4 Coupes bearing the 2008 model year designation.
Finished in the delectable and handsome hue of Macadamia Metallic, a rich and regal shade of brown that looks outstanding in all lighting conditions and even more so beneath direct sunlight with an interior upholstered in Sand Beige Standard Leather creates an incredibly appealing visual aesthetic.
This Targa 4 has only traveled 41,XXX miles from new, is equipped with a 6-speed manual gearbox, shows a Clean CARFAX Report, left the factory with an original MSRP of $95,670, and benefits from a recent and complete servicing rendered by our in-house Porsche tech with 30 years of expertise (servicing specifics are available).

The 997.1 Carrera's Specialty: The last of the svelte-shaped, "right-sized", "modern yet still mechanical", and naturally-aspirated Carrera models is simply perfection and provides for a culmination of traits that's highly unlikely to be readily presented again! Also, the 997.1 generation's manual-operated Targa 4 is the lightest of the new-age Targa 4 models!
