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.

There was a new silver Targa GTS with manual transmission and red leather interior at my local dealer a year or so ago. Wish I could attach a picture, which I have. That's what you need.

The manual transmission is the only no-cost option available in the Porsche range. The definitive "salesman saw you coming" company.

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.

I am also a Porsche fanatic and owner of a 997 911 turbo s which is absolutely incredible and a joy to drive every single time. Great video Jay and thank you for all you do for car enthusiasts 🙏

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

I am in love with my 987 Cayman. Even with 245hp the mid-engine car gives you a thrill you expect from a Porsche. Much more fascinating than the BMW 325 Coupe from my brother.

I can enjoy a Targa but not at the compromise of being able to easily get at the engine. An older air cooled 911 Targa would be my druther. As with any new Porsche 911 that is one sweet ride!

This channel is obviously of interest to men and so is HAIR LOSS, so I post this important notice here because lucky JAY has a beautiful head of hair. Conventional medicine has FAILED to solve HAIR LOSS because it has focused only on blocking DHT. I cured my HAIR LOSS with a NEW method described at www.BornAgainHair.com which explains why the MAIN cause of HAIR LOSS is not DHT but a reduction in the BLOOD FLOW to the scalp due to a tight lower scalp layer called the GALEA and shows how to cure hair loss with no drugs, no lotions and no surgery. Get the book and learn how to cure your hair loss...it cost almost nothing.

Great description, Jay. I learned to shift a stick in a Corvair Monza convertible, during a snowy winter no less. That rear weight taught me a healthy respect to maintain traction while turning. Then I was given a rear drive 911 Targa with 5 speed gearbox. An entirely new experience of power to weight ratio and handling. I was so spoiled.

Yellow would not be my pick of colors, but it looks great on the new 911. In fact, ANY color would be great on the royal, mighty 911. Since I've been in my twenties, I guess(and I just turned 68), when I really came it understanding cars and how they rank among each other, one thing which has been on my bucket list has been owning a 911. A friend of mine in Lafayette, LA in the early '80's bought a slightly used Targa as a "toy" car. He told me that the performance of that thing was just so powerful it was beyond belief. Being an inexperienced driver(at least for that level of performance), he said he almost lost control of it under hard acceleration. He also confided in me that he had never completely "aired it out". i.e. like "launched" it from a dead start on any stretch of road up to and just beyond 1/4 mile. He confessed to me that he was SCARED of it!
