The Targa has been providing an altogether different 911 experience since 1963, and now the 8th-gen car has been revealed. Not only does it provide the same the 911’s thrills with its 379-horsepower boxer-six engine found in the Targa 4, but it also boasts the balletic retractable roof system that’s like a robotic canopy of the best kind. You’ll play with it just to watch the 19-second transition from coupe to open-top Targa. The roof system includes a heated glass rear window, sound-deadening fabric, and an extendable wind deflector for those high speeds. Upgrade to the 4S, and you get 443 horses, and a drop in the 0-60 time from the 4’s 4.0 seconds down to a supercar-like 3.4. And yes, you can get them both in a seven-speed manual transmission, which is exactly the way it should be.

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
