The Targa name was inspired by the legendary Targa Florio road race in Sicily, where Porsche cars proved their competitiveness time and time again racing in the most demanding conditions.
The 911 3.2 had a redesigned engine inlet and exhaust system, along with the fitment of a service-free Digital Engine Management ignition system (DME), in conjunction with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel metering. This resulted in a significant increase in engine performance but a significant reduction in fuel consumption, through better engine efficiency and fuel cut-off when coasting. With a capacity of 3.2 litres, the air-cooled 6-cylinder, horizontally opposed engine produces an output of 230 bhp, at 5,900 rpm. Maximum torque is 284 Nm at 4,800 rpm, and the maximum speed is 152 mph. Acceleration to 60 mph is achieved in under 6 seconds. This Super Sport Equipment or SSE model, is the popular Turbo-look variant, which combined the normally aspirated air-cooled 6-cylinder engine with the Turbo’s looks. The style resembled the Porsche 930 Turbo with wide wheel arches and the distinctive “tea tray” tail spoiler also featured the stiffer Turbo suspension and the superior Turbo braking system as well as the wider Turbo wheels.
