Porsche 911 Carrera T revealed, arriving Down Under Q2 2018

Porsche 911 Carrera T revealed as pared-back variant

The Porsche 911 Carrera T will be available starting March 2018.

Conceived as a back-to-basics model based upon the standard 911 Carrera, the 911 Carrera T revives the puristic approach brought to earlier 911 models, including its 1968 namesake the 911 T, with a stripped out interior and the adoption of a series of performance enhancing features not usually made available on the 911 Carrera in a bid to ramp up its dynamic properties and provide a more visceral driving experience. Porsche is also offering this model with a PDK (Porsche-Doppelkupplung) semi-automatic twin-clutch gearbox, which hits a top track speed of 180 miles per hour but accelerates from zero to 60 miles per hour in 4.0 seconds, using the standard launch control feature. Fuel consumption is 9.5L/100km. Thanks to lightweight glass used for the side and rear windows, fabric interior door straps instead of handles à la the firm's most hardcore GT offerings, and a deleted infotainment system and rear seats, the T is the skinniest 911 one can buy. Porsche will also offer the same "full bucket" seats available on the GT3 as an option, another feature denied to buyers of other 911s.

The result is a claimed kerb weight of 1425kg, some 20kg less than the standard 911 Carrera.

The rear is characterised by the slats in the rear lid grille, the "911 Carrera T" emblem in Agate Grey and the standard sports exhaust system, with central tailpipes painted in black. Keep an eye out for a model-specific spoiler attached to the front end, 20-inch alloy wheels taken from the Carrera S, and gray accents all around. The shortened manual gear lever with shift pattern in red remains exclusive to the 911 Carrera T. The decorative trims on the dashboard and doors are black, as are the door opening loops.

The drive mode selector switch is on the GT sports steering wheel, race vehicle style, and the four-way electrically adjustable stand sports seats are trimmed in black with centre panels in Sport-Tex fabric and the 911 logo stitched into each head restraint; full bucket seats are an option. It is based on the original 911 model.

Porsche has priced the 911 Carrera T at just over £85k in the United Kingdom, representing a £12k jump in price over the standard Carrera. The DCT drops this to 4.0 seconds. They face a GT Sport steering wheel with a driving mode selection switch.

Deliveries of the 911 Carrera T will begin in January 2018 in Europe and March 2018 in the USA, with prices starting from €107,553 in Germany and $102,100 in the United States (plus $1,050 destination). Both transmissions enable a top speed of over 290 km/h.
