Jay said he don‘t know anybody who put snow tyres on a enzo or lamborghini, he compares a enzo With a normal porsche , this is stupid a enzo is worth more them 2 milion a normal porsch macan you can buy for 30-40000 used in a good condition this makes no sense what he said, AND NOBODY PUTS SNOW TYRES ON A CARRERA GT HOW ABOUT THAT!

If Porsche goes to the trouble of making a folding fabric top, why don't they just make it a folding hardtop? - but nice car though.

I agree with him about just wanting the coupe. I have a 991.2 coupe and prefer it to the cab and targa. My only regret is that it's PDK. The next one will definitely be manual.

I’m with you Jay on preferring the manual. It must be an age thing, but I don’t want an automatic. I have some younger friends in my Porsche club that think I’m crazy. One thing is they can’t drive a manual. Lol.

I always liked the 911 Targa, with the exception of the 90's through 1st part of the 2000's when it was more of a glorified sunroof than a true targa top. That said, I would prefer if they had left it a manual removal and storage. No need to make it like a convertible top. That whole automated system just looks like something that will eventually break and be very expensive to fix, and yes, it adds unnecessary weight. Given we live in SoCal where the weather is usually good 9+ months of the year, I normally leave the T-top or Targa top off the vehicles I've own. So being able to quickly and mechanically remove or restore the roof at a light isn't a feature that I ever knew I wanted, much less want to pay for.

Mr Leno I have a very important question and I think it's a question that a lot of us that share your beliefs and old vehicles want answered rather sooner than later. We pride watching your show on one fact you drive the cars you drive them all the time you love them your kid in a candy store and you own the candy store now God forbid when you pass away who's going to drive your cars then? I think it should be a museum but also an enthusiast playground should let anybody that is took the time to study the car get a chance to drive it because no other museum no other place on Earth would let you do that even if it's just for a couple miles you know me people want to drive one of those old Stanley steamers or what are your mini sports cars or motorcycles something you might want to think about now instead of later. Thank you very much

In regards to the Targa vs Coupe, If you are spending enough time on track that the coupe makes a difference, you should be looking at the GT cars regardless.

The car is wonderful. One thing that I feel that is not an improvement are those '80s era door handles for which you have to rotate your wrist. Unnatural.

Jay says the "targa" covers up the engine, but that's true of any 911 these days, even the coupe. You pop the rear "hood" and all you see is a cover over the engine and the fluid intakes. You have to take an additional step and remove the cover, and even then it's hard to see anything because the engine's packed in about half the space of a front-engine sports car like a Mustang. The closest you can come to casually looking at the engine is to crouch behind it and look up.

I've come to appreciate AWD in a 911 on dry pavement. Jay mentions in passing that it's really stable, and that's exactly what I like about it. The car really wants to over-rotate due to the weight in the rear, and the AWD makes that a non-issue for a guy who isn't an expert race car driver. The car feels ridiculously planted and safe in a way that no that no previous sports car I've owned has felt.

Completely unrelated, but I couldn't help but notice the Citreon 2CV and DS in the background. My father was a Citreon fanatic and he owned copies of both cars. I never warmed to the 2CV personally, but the DS was a funky streamlined car in the 70's when you never saw cars with those sleek curves. He was getting 30 MPG on the highway in the 70's!

Targa is perfect for someone who likes the thought of having a convertible, but doesn’t like being so exposed and on display. The introverts convertible! And it’s really a Grand Tourer instead of a pure Sports car, imho

911 is the first car I remember really making a big impression on me as a young lad. I'm not a fan of the "targa" top because the roofline is a big part of what makes 911s look so awesome.

These cars that are low to the ground and I'm talking in general even other cars that are low to the ground are becoming increasingly DANGEROUS because your head these days are at the same height of someone else's bumper because of the huge popularity of the SUV and Jeeps were they love to lift them even higher than factory so good luck with that.

Regarding the Hard Top Convertible (HTC): I've had a C5 and C6 and rarely took off the targa top. I now own a 2020 MX5 RF and love the HTC! Any sunny day (Huntsville, AL) Winter or Summer I'll hold the HTC button and 15 seconds later it's up or down. I also have a 2021 C8 HTC on order which should be here in a couple of weeks and from what I can tell the 911 HTC, MX5 RF and the C8 HTC all pretty much use a similar multi-motor HTC mechanism. At 6'1" I found that you really had to try and look at the C8 coupe engine, i.e. a good lean over the side w/o touching the side was required. Given that you're looking at a plastic intake manifold along with the fact that the glass (it's an engine compartment) gets grimy fast I don't feel like I'm going to miss much not seeing the engine. As long as it sounds good I'll be happy! lol
