Every new 911 traces its roots back to the original sports car from the 1960s, but only one draws rings back to the originals.
The 2021 Porsche 911 Targa 4 and 911 Targa 4S were revealed Sunday, the latest in the 992 generation and certainly not the last. The Targa 4 and 4S directly follow the 911 Turbo S and precede a handful more models that are certainly in the mail later down the line. (GT3, GT2, 911 T, GTS, who knows maybe a bear or something.)
