The Porsche 911 Targa 4S (991.2) is the top-of-the-line model in the second phase of the 991 generation of the Porsche 911 Targa.
Following an introduction at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, the 991 was received a mid-cycle facelift for the 2017 model year. The updated Porsche 911 (at Porsche internally referred to as 991.2 or 991 II) introduced new styling including updated front and rear bumpers, new dual exhaust pipes along with new head and tail lights and options, along with all new, 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six engines across the range.
This was the first time the standard Carrera models had adopted turbocharged engines rather than naturally aspirated ones, which were initially criticised for lacking the engine sound that previous non-turbocharged variations had. This criticism quickly dissipated as it became apparent the 991.2 offered a substantial step up in performance and feel over the preceding model.
The Targa 4 and 4S were unveiled in October 2015. The Targa 4S includes an upgraded 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged flat-6 engine generating a maximum power output of 420 PS (309 kW; 414 hp) and 499 N⋅m (368 lb⋅ft) of torque.

The Porsche 911 Targa 4S was added in the Summer Update as a high-end Class D car with the following rank statistics:
The Porshe 911 Targa 4S is like a Class D version of the Ford GT. It has the second-highest top speed in Class D, after the TVR Griffith. However, its acceleration, handling and nitro efficiency are atrocious, particularly its nitro efficiency, which is one of the lowest in the game.
The Targa struggles to get up to its top speed and is only usable on tracks such as The Himalayas or New York which contain straight sections where it can reach its high top speed. The Targa will run out of nitro extremely quickly, so nitro must be managed properly.
