Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Edition Takes Cherry Red To Another Level

First of four Porsche Heritage Models Coming

  • New Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Edition pays tribute to Porsche’s 1950s and 1960s

  • Cherry metallic red among five exterior colors offered

  • Five-spoke, Fuchs-inspired wheels also included


The new Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Edition is the first of four collector pieces to come from Porsche’s Heritage Design. Based off of the latest 992 Targa unveiled last month, the new Heritage Edition pays tribute to Porsche models of the 1950s and 1960s.

Five colors are available including Cherry Metallic pictured here. It combines with gold logos and white livery elements to replicate 1950s Porsche design elements. The two white spears on the wings recall Porsche’s first steps in competition racing in the 50s.

Back in the day, Porsche used to give 356 models that reached 100,000 kilometres a special badge on the luggage compartment grille. The new 911 Targa 4S Heritage Edition will have a similar badge which Porsche describes as a “seal of quality of the past with a special twist”.

The interior will be available in two two-tone layouts, Bordeaux Red leather with Atacama Beige OLEA club leather, or Black leather with Atacama Beige. Corduroy can be found on the seats and door trims as well, just like in the Porsche 356.

Only 992 units of the first Heritage Porsche model will be built and each will be numbered.

Porsche is planning three other Heritage Design models after this 911 Targa 4S. The special editions pay tribute to former Porsche interior and exterior designs from the 1950s to the 1980s. The Porsche 911 Speedster Heritage Package was an initial preview of what’s to come from Porsche.

Do we need to tell you we’re looking forward to seeing the next model in the Heritage lineup.
