Porsche Press Office: 911 Carrera T
Source: Porsche Newsroom
It’s always exciting to see Porsche add to the 911 model range and this new Carrera T is no exception.
This new lightweight touring sports car is described as “offering a purist driving experience with exceptionally sporty equipment”.
The standard 911 T features a seven-speed manual gearbox but an eight-speed PDK is also available. As standard, the 911 T rear seats have been deleted and with the reduced sound insulation, means the sound of the six-cylinder boxer engine is now even more striking within the interior.
Reported Performance Information
Standard with PASM sports suspension and Sport Chrono package
The new 911 Carrera T slots in between the 911 Carrera and the 911 Carrera S. The Carrera T takes its biturbo engine with 283 kW (385 PS; 911 Carrera T models: Fuel consumption* combined (WLTP) 10.9 – 10.3 l/100 km, CO₂ emissions* combined (WLTP) 247 – 233 g/km, Fuel consumption* combined (NEDC) 10.2 – 9.5 l/100 km, CO₂ emissions* combined (NEDC) 232 – 217 g/km) and 450 Newton metres of torque, and which accelerates the sports car from zero to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and to a top speed of 291 km/h, from the entry-level 911.
The standard equipment from the Carrera S with a manual transmission is augmented by Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with a mechanical rear differential lock.
The 911 Carrera T also comes standard with the Sport Chrono package and the PASM sports suspension (-10 mm) – features that only the Carrera T offers in combination with the 385-PS engine. This is available as an option in the 911 Carrera S. On request, the Carrera T can also be ordered with the optional rear-axle steering, which is also normally reserved for models from the Carrera S and up.
Customers will also be invited to explore the potential of the new car by participating in a bespoke driving experience around the unique tracks at the Porsche Experience Centre, Silverstone.
The Porsche 911 Carrera T features include 20- and 21-inch Titanium Grey Carrera S wheels in front and back, respectively, with 245/35 (front) and 305/30 (rear) sized tyres.
The Carrera T also comes standard with the GT sports steering wheel, sports exhaust system and Sports Seats Plus (four-way, electric). Weighing just 1,470 kg, the 911 Carrera T with a manual transmission is the lightest series 911 with the entry-level engine, coming in 35 kg lighter than the 911 Carrera with a standard eight-speed PDK.
The 911 Touring Concept
For those not in the know, the “T” in the Porsche 911 Carrera T stands for touring and traces its history back to the homologation of the 911 T as a touring car in 1968. This first 911 T was offered until 1973, and in 2017 Porsche revived the 911 variant with the 911 Carrera T of the 991 model line.
Since then, the concept of the stripped-down, yet exceptionally sporty setup has been successfully brought to other model lines with the 718 Cayman T, the 718 Boxster T and the Macan T.
Carrera 911 T Exclusive Details Insode & Out
On the exterior, the Porsche 911 Carrera T stands out from the rest of the model line with Dark Grey accentuating details. Contrasting elements such as the top and bottom trim on the exterior mirrors, the new door logos and the rear logos, and the trim strips on the rear lid grille feature Agate Grey.
The windscreen also features a grey top tint. The tailpipes of the sports exhaust system are in high-gloss black and it all gives the new 911 Carrera T a more extroverted and dynamic look.
Decorative trim in matte black and decorative inlays in high-gloss black round off the T interior. Customers seeking even more distinctiveness can choose the optional Carrera T interior package. In this case, they receive additional safety belts in the contrasting colours Slate Grey or Lizard Green.
The same goes for the decorative stitching, the 911 logo embossed in the headrests and the stripes down the seat centres. The floor mats also offer the logo and stitching in the contrasting colours of Lizard Green and Slate Grey as an option.
