Love the car, but man...$150k is a lot of cheese. So many great alternatives for less money. I guess it does have a pretty cool party trick though.

The extra lbs may not affect dynamics, but it's no quicker than a base 911 with a manual transmission. Then again, that car is all about the traffic stopping targa top.

I love it. Style, plenty of performance, AWD practicality. Yes, it's huge money, but this is all the car you ever need.

i'd say its worth the asking price... GTS Targa may be the best 991 in terms of overall package...




all it needs is that targa bar blacked-out......

if a 3er wagon is 60k loaded, a CLA-AMG 45k, a C63 nearly 80k, then 150k for a 991 as such shouldnt really shock ppl... Your "entry level" V8 Ferrari will cost over 250k these days..make it a vert and your breaking 300k..

I love targa tops, but not on the 911. Yuck. I suppose it's better than the 911 vert. Saw the new 911 targa on the street last week and thought it looked ok.....$150k lol no thanks.
