Porsche 911 Targa India launch price Rs 1,59 crores

Porsche first introduced the 911 back in 1963, but as a coupe. The open top, semi convertible variant came in 1967. This was called 911 Targa. Targa in Italian means ‘plate’. It is a registered trademark of Porsche AG, and is derived from a sports car race in Sicily called Targa Florio, where Porsche had notable success.
