2019 Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS

There is very little that will attract my attention more than a black car looking its best. It may only look its best for the 15 minutes immediately after being detailed, but it’s a divine 15 minutes. I particularly like open-top black cars, which is why I own one. Sadly, it never looks its best since it always is parked outside. Meaning I end up looking longingly at the occasional exceptional examples I see. Some people will tell you black cars are boring and too common. They are wrong.

This one, a Black 2019 Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS with Espresso/Cognac natural leather interior and 557 miles on it, looks so devilishly good. I don’t typically feature many nearly new 911s other than the various rare GT and special edition models, but I saw this one and couldn’t take my eyes off of it. It’s been built pretty well too with a bunch of worthwhile options and it has a manual transmission. During the summer I walked past a black Targa 4 GTS parked in the neighborhood and it was stunning. This one rekindles that memory.

Let me get one thing out-of-the-way immediately: the asking price here is the full MSRP when this Targa was new. I don’t think you should pay full price because this is not a new Porsche. It doesn’t have a lot of miles, but why would you pay full price for something you could order precisely as you’d want it and with no previous ownership? To get it immediately is the only reason. Still, as I mentioned in a recent post, this isn’t a GT3/GT3 RS/GT2 RS so it isn’t going to appreciate in value. I wouldn’t expect a giant discount either, but I think you can do better.

The car itself: I love it. It has taken me A LONG time to warm to the 991 design (just in time for the 992!), but the Targa really sold me. For me these easily are the best looking of the current generation. I really wish you could get a rear-drive model, but Porsche doesn’t want us to have everything. I like the options on this one as they provide some nice sporty touches with some nice classy touches. You get a good combination of luxury and sport, which is just what the 911 is best at doing. It isn’t perfect for my tastes. I’d have gone with the Black/Bordeaux Red leather interior, but I do like the lighter espresso/cognac combination of this one. It contrasts very well with that dark exterior and I prefer either over a black interior.

So if you really don’t want to wait to order one or for that perfect one to come in stock this looks like a nice example. Keep it clean and for those fleeting moments your eyes will sink into its depths and you’ll turn the head of anyone nearby.

  1. So how much over sticker is this car??

    And interesting they have a manuals gt3 for same price

  2. Interesting…the price went up. When I wrote this the price was $165,990 (which was the price when new – here’s the build sheet: https://vinanalytics.com/car/WP0BB2A92KS125102/WP0BB2A92KS125102.pdf). It is now listed at $189,900 and you are correct they have a GT3 for the same price.

    I have no idea why the price changed, especially considering that I’m not sure it should have been priced at sticker to begin with, let alone $25K over!

  3. They must be living in crazytown. Very pretty car, but not worth $165, let alone $190.

  4. typical of these so cal dealers

  5. Beautiful design : if only they had done away with the fancy roof theatrics and had a simple manual clip on fabric top while retaining the gorgeous glass rear.

  6. Well the eBay listing has been ended and it’s no longer listed on their website. I guess they found a crazy buyer. I can’t believe it’d sell before the GT3.

    Here’s another with a pretty interesting interior. Priced at sticker.

    Arun, I’m with you on the simpler Targa top. Probably save a lot of weight too!

  7. the targas transformers act is pretty cool…id like that car in future for a daily and 100000 less money

  8. I’d take a GT3 over this anyday and twice on Sunday.

  9. They bumped the price because they had a buyer, they just hadn’t finalized the deal. These cars do NOT sell over sticker price. Porsche didn’t build a huge amount of Targa GTS’s but they could still be had for less than MSRP and surely less than all but the stripper GT3’s

  10. The trials and travails of this Targa continue. It is now for sale at a different dealer. Above sticker.
