Viper Green 2017 Porsche 911 Targa 4S

Anyone who has been reading these pages for a while will know that I am a huge fan of the 911 Targa. My first experiences with a Porsche of any kind were in a Targa and I guess that first love has remained with me. I love the aesthetics and the versatility. I even love Porsche’s initial forays into the model’s development with the kind-of-crazy Soft-window Targa. I loved them right up until 1996 when the design was modified for the 993. The Targa basically had become a giant sunroof.

Thankfully that all changed in 2014 when Porsche returned the Targa to its true form. It wasn’t all roses. At its release the Targa was only available as either a 4 or 4S, i.e. no rear-drive Targa, but the Targa was back and it looked great! It fit the design of the 991 well. The new Targa allowed electronics to do all of the work so the top could be removed without too much fuss. You do have to come to a stop though. The horror.

Even with the Targa’s return I have seen very few of them on the road. So I guess the least loved of the 911s will remain that way. Maybe buyers aren’t sure what it is? I doubt anyone would fail to stop and look at this one: a Viper Green 2017 Porsche 911 Targa 4S, located in New York, with 7-speed manual transmission and 6,396 miles on it.

I do love seeing Viper Green on these cars. It’s a shame we only see it parked inside as the color really pops in the sun. I can’t say I love everything about this build since I definitely could do without the Porsche decal on the side and I have never been a fan of these wheels. Those are easily changed and entirely subjective. The red gauge faces, that might be a little more problematic. So it isn’t perfect, at least not for me. Oh well. It still looks really great despite its flaws.

This being a relatively new 911 it all really comes down to price (already assuming, of course, you want a PTS Targa). This mileage would be considered high for its age so we must factor that in as well. We quickly are in trouble. At this asking price you actually could get yourself a new PTS Targa 4 GTS. I don’t know that you could get every option on this list, but you certainly can get most of the good ones. With more than 6K miles on it the price here simply will have to come down. The Signal Yellow Carrera GTS (still for sale by the way!) I featured in early January came in nearly $30K less with half the miles. Granted, it’s not a Targa, but that is still a huge price difference. At the end of the day this Targa is priced more or less at MSRP, except someone already drove it 6K miles.

We must always consider the difficulty and time involved in getting a PTS allocation, but I think it’s fairly clear that if you can get one, then you could get the same car for the same money but with no miles. As always, if you have to have it RIGHT NOW then here it is, but I’d definitely try to work this price down a good bit. Or just forego the Targa and pay a lot less for that Signal Yellow Carrera GTS!

  1. The new targa design looks beautiful but I just can’t get on board with how complex the targa roof mechanism is. I wish they had a fixed glass targa back with manual clip on panels instead of the whole the thing doing this elaborate show and dance.

    Dare I say – like a corvette roof ?! Simple and the car would weigh a few hundred pounds less without all that automation.

  2. Also that mint greet GTS featured here is still available and can probably be had for a lot less that the signal yellow GTS :))

  3. Yep, the Mint Green as well is an option. I like Viper Green more, but for the money I’m not sure I like it THAT MUCH more.

    I do agree about the top. It’s nice to not have to do much, but anytime I see these elaborate electric tops I start counting the ways it could fail. Sometimes simplicity is really worth it.

  4. I asked my service advisor about the 991 targa roof reliability just a couple weeks ago. He said they have worked on a few minor issues, but nothing serious. Yet.

  5. It’s not that the 991 Targa is unloved. They’re rare because so few are made. IIRC there are far more GT cars on the road than 991 targas.
