Last month Porsche unveiled the GTS version of the new 991 Targa at the Detroit Motor Show, and we brought you its pictures and details. Now the car has made it European debut at the 30th Festival International Automobile in Paris, and what we have here for you is a more thorough and in-depth look at the Porsche 991 Targa GTS.

The video includes a complete walk around the Porsche 991 Targa GTS and the roof action, which we still maintain is needlessly complicated and a waste of money and space. I mean all that trouble for what’s in essence a big sunroof?
