There once was a time when everyone’s favorite German rear engine pendulum on wheels did not have a cabriolet variant. It was thought that due to tightening US safety regulations regarding vehicle rollovers, that convertibles may have trouble being imported into what was then one of the 911’s most important markets, the United States. So for the 1967 model year, the Targa was born. Essentially a convertible with a single stainless steel rollover hoop and removable roof panel, the Targa became an icon of open air motoring to those who want the wind in their hair, but none of the vulnerability of a soft top.
Fast forward to 2008 and the Targa name plate is alive and strong. Gone is the manually removed roof panel, in favour of a coupe-styled body sporting a sleek power retracting glass arrangement which includes a built-in power sunshade. So say goodbye to messy wind swept hair, the Targa gives you all the open air you want, without any of the downsides. Throw in some heated seats, extended leather package, and a Targa specific rear hatch (the only 911 available with a rear hatchback) and you have Grand Tourer ready to hit the California Coast whenever your little heart desires to leave the rat race that surrounds you.
So it has a cool roof, and all the comfort you need. What about speed? How, you ask, will one be able to hit 180 MPH? When the time is right, and it’s just you and the long mundane straight that separates you from destiny, a 3.8 liter Flat six producing 355 HP is connected to a 6-speed manual transmission. Throw in full time all-wheel drive, and 0-60 MpH comes up in 4.9 seconds, along with the ability to throw on some snow tires, mount some skis to the available Porsche roof rack, and take this open air bullet up to your local ski hill. There once was a time when Porsche thought that open air motoring was over. Perhaps you feel the same way to this day. Well have a seat, because the 2008 911 Targa 4S would like to show you how it does open air.

Advantages of Lotus Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles:
We have you covered:
Drive with confidence knowing your vehicle is backed by an industry leading warranty with Superior Coverage. Our Lotus Certified Pre-Owned warranty program includes most of your car’s components, not just the drivetrain. For example, power windows, sunroof motors, even heated seats are all covered, as is your engine and transmission – but there’s lots more. Call or email us here for details.
Most of our certified pre-owned vehicles offer at least one year of coverage, with no mileage restrictions whatsoever. If the vehicle you purchase from us is still covered by the factory warranty, our Lotus Certified Warranty starts the day that warranty ends.
Warranty Valid throughout Canada and the USA:
If you’re traveling and cannot bring your car back to us for service, have the confidence knowing your car is covered when you travel. You can take your car to any licensed mechanic for warranty service, across Canada and the USA.
You Can Upgrade your Coverage:
One year not enough? You can easily upgrade your coverage up to as much as 10 years from the original factory warranty at nominal cost with varying options; we’ll give you the credit for the first year on us! Speak with one of our experts to learn more.
Out of Town Purchases + Delivery:
We have customers across Canada, the US, and through parts of Western Europe. As much as we want to sell cars in British Columbia, we recognize that our brand and business has earned its reputation internationally.
In Canada, every province has different taxation rules and we can accommodate them all. We can help you secure worry free shipping to your door, and assist you with vehicle registration once your car arrives.
You have a number of choices available to you:
The first step is to contact us. We always have our professional photographs, our inspection reports, lien checks, service records, CarProof, and CarFax Reports available to you. We’re happy to refer you to previous out of town customers so you can get a reliable third party account of their experience with us, to give you peace of mind when purchasing a car sight-unseen.
Should you prefer to see, touch, and drive your vehicle prior to purchase, we will pick you up at Vancouver International Airport (YVR). From there, you can choose safe, insured door to door delivery in enclosed transporters that guarantee the arrival of your purchase in the same condition that it left our showroom.
Or, should you opt for an exceptional drive home, we will happily pay up to $250 toward your overnight stay en route.
Please contact us if you have questions or need further information on out of province or international purchases, shipping, and/or sales tax exemptions.
