Porsche 911 Carrera T, A Brand-New Lightweight Sports Car

014_911_

Porsche is adding the 911 family’s lightweight sports car, the 911 Carrera T. The letter “T” stands for touring and describes models that offer a purist driving experience with exceptionally sporty equipment.

The seven-speed manual gearbox found on the 911 T is standard. There is also an eight-speed PDK available. The back seats are missing. The new 911 Carrera T is the pinnacle of purism and exciting driving pleasure, sporting a PASM sports suspension with a 10-mm-lowering and reduced insulation. On crooked country and mountain roads, you can hear it as well as feel it. The interior now features an even more striking presence from the six-cylinder boxer engine’s sound.

Standard with PASM sports suspension and Sport Chrono package

The brand-new 911 Carrera T sits between the 911 Carrera, and the 911 Carrera S. The 911 Carrera T models use a 283 kW (385 PS) Biturbo engine in the Carrera T. Fuel consumption* combined (WLTP) 10.9–10.3 l/100 km, CO2 emissions* combined (WLTP) 247–233 g/km, Fuel consumption* collective (NEDC) 10.2–9.5 l/100 km, CO2 emissions* combined (NEDC) 232–217 g/km, and 450 Newton meters of torque allow the sports car to reach speeds of 291 km/h and accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds. Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) and a mechanical rear differential lock are added to the Carrera S’s standard features for manual transmission models.

In addition, the 911 Carrera T includes two optional features exclusive to the Carrera T when coupled with the 385 PS engine: the Sport Chrono package and the PASM sports suspension (-10 mm). The 911 Carrera S offers this as an option. The optional rear-axle steering, typically only available for Carrera S and higher models, is also available for the Carrera T upon request.

T-specific equipment features include front and rear Titanium Grey Carrera S wheels measuring 20 and 21 inches with 245/35 show and 305/30 rear tyre sizes, respectively. The GT sports steering wheel, sports exhaust system, and Sports Seats Plus are included with the 911 Carrera T as standard equipment (four-way, electric). The 911 Carrera T with a manual transmission, which weighs just 1,470 kg and is 35 kg lighter than the 911 Carrera with a standard eight-speed PDK, is the lightest 911 in the series with the entry-level engine. There is no longer a manual transmission option for the 911 Carrera. Beyond the removed back seats and reduced insulation, lighter glass and a battery help to reduce weight even further.

Touring car concept successful across several model lines

The Porsche 911 Carrera T’s model designation includes the letter “T” for touring. Its origins can be found in the 911 T’s 1968 homologation as a touring vehicle. Up until 1973, this original 911 T was available. With the 911 Carrera T of the 991 model line, Porsche brought back the purist 911 variant in 2017. Since the introduction of the 718 Cayman T, 718 Boxster T, and Macan T, the idea of the streamlined yet incredibly sporty setup has been successfully applied to other model lines.

Exclusive details inside and out

The Porsche 911 Carrera T’s exterior details in Dark Grey stand out from the rest of the model lineup. The new door logos, rear logos, top and bottom trim on the exterior mirrors, and the trim strips on the back lid grille all have Agate Grey accents. The top of the windscreen is tinted grey as well. The sports exhaust system’s tailpipes are high-gloss black. It makes the new 911 Carrera T look even more outgoing and athletic.

The standard four-way Sports Seats Plus made the car’s interior sports tourer. The T interior is finished off with decorative high-gloss black inlays and matte black trim. Customers who want their vehicle to stand out even more, can select the optional Carrera T interior package. In this situation, they are given additional safety belts that contrast with each other and are either Slate Grey or Lizard Green.

The 911 logo embossed on the headrests, the decorative stitching, and the stripes running down the center of the seats are all examples. The logo and stitching on the floor mats can also be ordered in contrasting shades of Lizard Green and Slate Grey.

Small but exquisite selection of options and colors

The optional Adaptive Sports Seats Plus (18-way, electric) and even sportier and remarkably light total bucket seats with Race Tex seat centers are available on the 911 Carrera T. An extended leather interior is an option for the Carrera T interior package. The armrests on the center console and door panels are also made of leather, along with the upper portions of the dashboard and door panel trim.

There are four solid colors—Black, White, Guards Red, and Racing Yellow—as well as four metallic finishes—Deep Black, Gentian Blue, Ice Grey, and GT Silver—that are all offered for the new 911 Carrera T. There, are special color variations of Chalk, Carmine Red, Ruby Star Neo, Shark Blue, and Python Green. The 911 Carrera T’s Paint to Sample program offers paintwork in over 110 different color tones and is also available to buyers.
