The impressive Porsche 911 Targa returns today with its official debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

With a huge wrap around glass window and a small convertible roof, the Targa allows drivers to experience the airy feeling of a drop top. Like past 911 Targas this new model features a wide bar in place of the B-pillars and a stunning wraparound rear glass panel, ditching the need for C-Pillars.

The large glass segment and convertible segment on the new Targa is now motorized and can be opened and closed at the push of a button. The top is stowed behind the rear seats for portability.
