A new Targa roofline that mimics Porsche’s original ground-breaking 1965 design has been announced at a time when the coupe roofline is starting to look a little familiar.

After corrupting its definitive and often-copied 911 Targa from 1965, Porsche has returned to the original design with a striking new version premiered at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.

Porsche’s original Targa replaced the traditional 911 Coupe roofline with a wide roll-over hoop in the centre of the passenger area. This hoop not only doubled as a B-pillar for the door glass but was hefty enough for Porsche to eliminate the 911’s C-pillar.
