Porsche Unveils The New 911 Carrera T Built For Raw Driving

Porsche 911 Carrera T revealed as pared-back special

The Porsche 911 Carrera T will be available from January 2018 and can be pre-ordered now in Europe. The new Porsche 911 Carrera T sees the carmaker revive the concept behind the 911 T of 1968 - measures include less weight, shorter transmission ratios from the seven-speed manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive with mechanical rear differential lock; the latter for "enhanced performance and intense driving pleasure".

The base price of the 2018 Porsche 911 T is $102,100 in the United States, or about $11,000 more than a base rear-wheel-drive Carrera. The auto is equipped with PDK transmission, the "shoots" to the first hundred (with 0 to 60 mph) in 4.0 seconds, and its maximum speed is 180 miles per hour. Fuel consumption is 9.5L/100km. And if you option the full bucket seats (which you definitely should) then the rear seats are deleted to save even more weight. The result is a kerb weight of 1425kg, some 20kg less than the standard Carrera.

The 911 Carrera T is powered by the same turbocharged 3.0-litre horizontally opposed six-cylinder petrol engine as the standard 911 Carrera.

On the outside, the Carrera T has 20-inch Carrera S wheels with a Titanium Grey finish. The exterior colour options are Black, Lava Orange, Guards Red, Racing Yellow, White and Miami Blue, as well as the metallic colours Carrara White, Jet Black and GT Silver. Rear-axle steering is available as an option. The DCT drops this to 4.0 seconds.

"The vehicle comes standard with PASM Sport Suspension boasting a 0.39" lower ride height.

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. It is based on the original 911 model.

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. Seen here are the GT sports steering wheel with leather and a mode switch. Everything inside is black, unless you specify the Carrera T Interior Package, which adds contrast-color seat belts, stitching, embroidery, and more. The model, when on sale, starts from £85,576 in the United Kingdom, and deliveries start in January 2018.

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