PORSCHE is honouring its classic 1960s 356B with an Exclusive Design Edition version of the 911 Targa 4S, which is decorated in the historic model’s standard hue of Etna Blue.

The limited-edition Targa was rolled out at Germany’s esteemed Nurburgring – nicknamed the Green Hell – as part of the AVD Oldtimer Grand Prix this week, with the Exclusive Design Edition on show for 60,000 spectators.

Using the unlimited 911 Targa 4S as its basis, the more exclusive version has been treated to a number of unique styling tweaks to set it apart from regular versions of the German car-maker’s hard-top convertible sportscar.

In addition to the Exclusive Design Edition’s sky blue non-metallic paint, the special wears 20-inch RS Spyder wheels decorated in a unique satin pale gold paint dubbed White Gold, with the rich tone also applied to the Targa’s defining roof bar and Porsche side stripes.

Exterior embellishments are completed with ‘black’ LED headlights to match the black sport exhaust tail-pipes and engine cover grille.

Unique aesthetic touches continue on the inside with Graphite Blue leather upholstering the 18-way adjustable adaptive sports seats and highlighted by contrasting Provence Blue piping and stitching. The colour is also applied to the air vent fins.

Occupants are reminded of the exclusive run of Design Edition cars with the words Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur on the dashboard and a profile image of the Targa embossed onto the central storage box lid.

Passengers are welcomed by the variant name illuminated in blue on the door sills, with the Exclusive Design Edition moniker etched into black steel below. The Targa name is also presented in blue on the roof bar.

Porsche has not revealed how many of the specials will be produced, but customers quick enough to get in before the run ends will also get a specially designed car cover and a unique photo album which documents various stages of each example, bound in the same interior leather.

Mechanically, it is business as usual for the 4S with 309kW and 500Nm sent from its 3.0-litre turbocharged flat six engine to all four wheels, via either a seven-speed manual gearbox or automatic equivalent.

Porsche will not be offering the special Down Under at this stage and Australian fans will have to settle for the standard Targa 4, which is available from $255,400 before on-road costs or $290,500 for the hotter Targa 4S.

The Stuttgart-based car-maker has produced limited special editions of its iconic 911, with Black Edition and 911 50 offered in recent years to celebrate milestones in the model’s history.
