Me Targa, You Jane

The on-again, off-again production of Porsche’s Targa resumes with the 2015 version. While the Cabriolet gets most of the love, there’s still something to be said for the Targa. Appearing first in 1965, it was dubbed the “safety Cabriolet”. Its removable hardtop gave some protection for those wanting a choice in between a soft-top convertible and fixed-roof car.

Specs include 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds on 350 hp. Porsche figures the 2015 Porsche Targa will be a good choice for those in colder areas of the country, where buyers might want something sporty, but offering more weather proection than a Cabriolet. Expect to pay $100-115k.
