Porsche 911 Targa 4

Going back to their design roots, Porsche has unveiled the 2014 Porsche Targa 4 ($101,600+) and Targa 4S ($116,200) models, with the key Targa style elements borrowed from the original 1965 Porsche 911 Targa.  Both Targa 4 models note a wraparound rear window and a removable front roof section, with the modern difference being the roof opens and closes automatically in a mere 20 seconds (with the roof stowed neatly behind the rear seats when down).  As its name implies, both models come with all-wheel drive configurations, with the 911 Targa 4 noting a 6-cylinder 3.4-liter engine with 350 bhp and 0-60 mph time of 4.6 seconds.  For added power, the Targa 4S makes use of a 3.8-liter 6-cylinder with 400 bhp and a 0-60 mph time of 4.2 seconds.  Top speed on both is faster than you'll ever go, coming in at about 174 mph and 182 mph, respectively.  Look for both 2014 Porsche 911 Targa 4 models to go on sale this summer.

Adding to its performance-oriented SUV lineup, Porsche has introduced their new 2014 Porsche Macan – a smaller baby brother to their Cayenne SUV.  Available in two models – the Macan S ($50,000 base price) and the Macan Turbo ($72,300 base price) – both models note impressive performance figures, which is exactly what you expect from Porsche.  On the Macan S, the 340 hp V6 3.0-liter twin-turbo powerplant helps propel the model from 0 - 62 mph in 5.4 seconds before reaching a top speed of 158 mph.  As for the Macan Turbo, its 400 hp V6 3.6-liter twin-turbo propels the SUV to 62 mph in just 4.8 seconds before hitting a top speed of 165 mph.  Both models adopt a double wishbone front suspension and a multi-link rear arrangement with variable damping control and an electro-mechanical steering system, with Porsche noting the Macan boasts "the most agile handling in its class".  You can check out more of the 2014 Porsche Macan in the gallery below.
