Porsche Sydney South launches the Porsche 911 4S Targa in Australia

Porsche Sydney South held the exclusive unveiling of the Porsche 911 4S Targa in their Alexandria showroom on Thursday 16 March 2017.

This was the first of its kind launch in Australia. There are about 20 variants of this vehicle and prices start at $296,150 plus on road costs but can be as expensive as $500,000. The vehicle is a fast luxury car that combines elements of both the coupe and the convertible and harks back to the Targa models of the 1970s. It includes Porsche’s Active Suspension Management, a retractable roof, a leather interior and Bose surround sound system. it has the same 3.0-litre six cylinder turbocharged flat-six engine that debuted in 2016 model. In the 4S, it is tuned for 309kW of power at 6500rpm and 500Nm of torque at 1700-5000rpm. It also comes with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, all-wheel drive and fuel use of 8.0L for 100km.

The vehicle that was unveiled on the night was one built by the team at Porsche Sydney South for the launch and featured an oak green metallic exterior finish.

Unlike other parties that invite celebrities, this event was for the customer who had previously purchased a Porsche. The only publicly known person in attendance was Porsche racing car driver Aaron Zerafos.

The boutique special event production agency, Team Event PL, organised many aspects of the event, including the catering, the band, the Moet and wine bar and the customised Martini bar that served four types of Archie Rose vodka or gin martinis.

Guests got to emboss the Porsche crest on a piece of leather (with three colours to choose from) and take it home to use as a mouse pad.

So what does a typical Porsche customer look like? Well, according to sales staff, they are people who have done well out of property and are now interested in buying cars. And although it is advised to never invest money in anything that moves, some Porsche cars have risen by $300,000-$400,000 in the space of half a decade. It is all about the rarity of the car, so if the vehicle is a limited edition or Porsche decides to stop making a certain model or variant of a model, you may be in luck.
