2014 Porsche 991 Targa Testing on the Nurburgring (Video)

Porsche has made no secrets about their plans to release a 911 991 Targa. Reports peg an unveil for as early as next month’s Frankfurt Motor Show, although no official word has come down from the boys in Stuttgart quite yet.

But the real question here is whether or not the car in the video is actually a Targa. The quite obvious black cloth roof makes it seem like nothing more than a Cabriolet — but is it?

Looking at stills from the video, we  think the cloth roof is  being used as a clever covering to hide the glass from the Targa roof. The back roofline also looks a bit, well, off for lack of a better term. But with all the development gear strapped on test cars these days, it could very easily be radio or data cables bulking things up.

Do remember, however,that the 991 Cabriolet has already been released, leading credence to the disguised Targa theory.

Then again, maybe we’re just a bit too eager for Porsche news.

Take a look at the video below and let us know in the comments and on Twitter. Do you think this is a disguised 991 Targa or just a Cabriolet?
