Kuala Lumpur. Sime Darby Auto Performance (SDAP) introduces the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition, a state-of-the-art 911 with design elements influenced by the ‘50s and ‘60s. Its historical exterior and interior design elements have been reinterpreted and combined with the latest technology from Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur.
The Heritage Design Edition is based on the new 992 generation 911 Targa and is equipped with the latest technology for chassis, assistance systems and infotainment. It is powered by a high-tech 331 kW (450 PS) biturbo boxer engine which, in combination with the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, accelerates the 911 Targa (with Launch Control) from 0-100 km/h in less than 3.6 seconds on its way to a top speed of 304 km/h.
“We’re bringing back our iconic looks from different eras and proving that Porsche stays true to its roots, even in the age of electrification. The 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition evokes the memories of the 50s, 60s, 70s, and 80s and translates these elements into a modern day sports car that excites Porsche customers through the lifestyle dimensions,” said Christopher Hunter, Chief Executive Officer of SDAP.
“In addition to the arrival of the new 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition, Porsche Centre Johor Bahru will be the first Classic Partner Centre in Malaysia and is scheduled for launch at the end of this year. This will further enhance the customer experience where Porschephiles can now refurbish and upkeep their classic Porsches at this new facility,” Hunter added.
This top-of-the-range 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition in Malaysia starts from RM 1,677,409* with SST exemption.
The exterior: Exclusive exterior colour and “Spears” motorsport graphics
The Cherry Metallic exterior colour exclusive to the 911 series takes up the style of the 50s in a modern interpretation. Alternatively, two solid colours (Black and Guards Red), a metallic colour (GT Silver Metallic) and a special colour (Crayon) are also available for the special model. Porsche also offers selected individual colours on request for customers wanting to design the exterior of their car for maximum individuality.
One striking design feature is the “Spears” motorsport graphic on the front wings: high-quality white livery elements in the shape of a spear. These “spears” recall the early days of Porsche motorsports history, when the race cars were painted after collisions to hide any marks. Later, the spears were used as a kind of “warpaint” and were one of the first design elements customers used to personalise their vehicles. There are also motorsport graphics with a historical design on the sides of this special model, conveying a high level of recognition of the 911 Speedster Heritage Design package of 2019. The sporty look can be supplemented by race numbers from 0 to 99 on request.
Gold-coloured lettering at the rear and on the Targa bar, as well as the historic Porsche crest on the wheel hub cover and the bonnet, complete the overall picture. The 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition has 911 Carrera Exclusive Design wheels in Black high-gloss (or, optionally, in Platinum satin gloss) in the 20 or 21-inch format and black-painted brake callipers with the classic look. Other design features include the Porsche Heritage badge on the luggage compartment grille and silver sports tailpipes.
The interior: Comeback of corduroy
The special design of the exterior is also reflected in the interior. Even as you enter, the brushed aluminium panels bearing the words “911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition” indicate the vehicle’s exclusivity. The Heritage Design floor mats are a matching detail.
The Bordeaux Red two-tone leather upholstery and Atacama Beige OLEA club leather were designed exclusively for this edition. Customers can also choose two-tone leather upholstery in Black and Atacama Beige. Corduroy, a fabric already used in the Porsche 356, makes a comeback and brings the fashion style of the 50s back to life. This soft ribbed fabric is used on the centre panels of the seats and in the door panels. The overall look of the interior is rounded off with perforated Alcantara® in Atacama Beige on the headlining and the A and B pillars.
The modern instrument cluster with two high-resolution seven-inch displays creates historical bonds in many ways: the analogue rev counter has a classic pointer. When the engine is started, the colour of the hands and digits changes from white to green. And the equally green scale lines are derived from the Porsche 356. The clock from the standard Sport Chrono package on top of the instrument panel also has green digits.
The historical Porsche crest is also reflected in the interior. It underlines the exceptional craftsmanship on the headrests and steering wheel, together with the embossed “Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur” lettering on the cover of the stowage compartment. The individual limited-edition badge on the decorative panel above the glove compartment is applied by hand. The car key painted in the exterior colour and the key pouch made of two-tone leather, also enhanced with the historical Porsche crest, are further examples of the attention to detail. The leather document folder and the specially designed indoor car cover underline the vehicle’s aim of being a true collector’s item.

Along with the introduction of the 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition, selected interior elements will be available for all current 911 models.
