This latest 991 model has far more than just a massive sunroof above you.
Indeed, available to hire from Prestige Car Hire, the Porsche 991 C4S Targa stays true to the 1965 original, and includes the traditional silver rollover hoop as well as that wind-in-your-hair driving experience.
Rather than having to remove the roof panel yourself, as the 1965 model required, the German sports car maker has made it entirely electric.
When your Porsche 991 C4S Targa car hire choice is stationary, the glass rear screen moves upwards and out, the metal hoop divides and the roof panel slides backwards and sits above the 3800cc, 400bhp lump that is the car’s engine. Only a few ticks of time later and the rear windscreen is back where it belongs - and you are at liberty to roar off topless, so to speak.
Hire the Porsche 991 C4S Targa from Prestige Car Hire and discover how it’s not unlike the 991 Cabriolet. However, the Targa car hire choice has a more retro charm and its style is just a shade more iconic. Both models of Porsche are, of course, stunning but the Targa seems to have that je ne sais quoi.
Behind the wheel, the car is sedate when you want it to be and a complete brute when you floor it. 0-62 arrives in 4.6 seconds and 183mph can be achieved at the top end.
This Porsche 991 C4S Targa rental hangs on to the bends effortlessly and not many cars can supply the out of the ordinary balance that Porsche weaves into the model’s DNA. The car’s engine is a perfect accomplice to that inborn stability - and the brakes erase momentum as quickly as speed is achieved in the first place.
If you’re looking to hire a 4 or 4S 991 convertible – there are no rear-wheel-drive Targas – then you should select the Targa car hire over the Cabrio. It looks astounding and it’s more comfortable without surrendering too much in the corners.
