Porsche 911 Carrera T: The Lightweight 911 For Porsche Purists

Adjust Comment Print

The Porsche 911 Carrera T is available to order now, with prices starting from £85,576 in the United Kingdom and deliveries commencing in January.

Available to order now prior to a planned start to United Kingdom deliveries in January, the new 911 Carrera T is differentiated from its standard sibling by a number of subtle exterior styling changes, including an altered front bumper with a more prominent splitter element, grey metallic exterior mirror housings, 20-inch alloy wheels, reworked slats within the engine lid and centrally mounted tailpipes pained in black.

That's because the new Porsche 911 Carrera T is about ditching everything that doesn't relate directly to driving fun - so much so that one of its options is an infotainment system (or as Porsche calls it the Porsche Communication Management system) delete.

It's lightweight, but not the highest performing 911 of the bunch (note "T" stands for "Touring"). It generates 370 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 339 lb. -ft. of torque from 1,750 rpm to 5,000 rpm. The manual model has a top track speed of 182 miles per hour. Combined with a manual transmissions with a shorter constant transaxle ratio and a standard mechanical rear differential lock, Porsche is promising a heightened level of performance and driving pleasure.

There are a few exterior upgrades, like a new front lip spoiler, Agate Grey exterior mirrors and 20-inch wheels painted in Titanium Grey. Finally, the GT sports steering wheel, red shift pattern for the shortened shift lever of the seven-speed manual gearbox, and black trim complete the package. The Porsche 911 Carrera T will be available from January 2018 and can be pre-ordered now in Europe.

The new 911 Carrera T is on sale now, with Australian deliveries set to start in the second quarter of 2018. 100km/h sprint will can be put away in 4.5 seconds whilst the PDK can do it in 4.2 seconds.

A special, optional T interior accent package gives you flashes of red, yellow or silver on the seat belts, the 9112 logo on the head restraints, the door opening loops and the centre panels of the seats. That's not all: rear-axle steering, which can't be had on the 911 Carrera, is available as an option on the 911 Carrera T.

If the buyer decides to fit it with the optional PDK, the Carrera T goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and reaches the 200 km/h mark in 14.5 seconds.

Top speed is rated at 'over 290km/h' regardless of which transmission is specified.
