A true driver's car, this tastefully updated and unpretentious mid-engine Porsche features on-rails handling, modern suspension and shifter, a head-turning orange finish, and an impeccably detailed interior. Equally at home cruising the highway or carving with confidence, the classic targa regularly offers its pilots a taut and sporty feel, and with a smartphone paired to the modernized Blaupunkt deck, a statistically-higher probability of smiles-per-mile.
