  • Porsche 911 Carrera T revealed as pared-back special

Pricing for the 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T starts at $103,150 with the destination fees.

Even the rear side windows are made from lighter glass whilst sound deadening has been minimalised to ensure drivers can hear the full song of the mechanics from inside the cabin.

Porsche has dipped into the parts bin created for the highly regarded 911 R and more recently unveiled 911 GT3 Touring in developing the latest in a long line of 911 models - the new 911 Carrera T (for Touring). As for the twin turbo engine, it allows for 370 hp and 339 lb ft of torque. Porsche claims a 0-62mph time of 4.5sec for the manual, 4.2sec if you order the dual-clutch automatic transmission. The recipe apparently works in 2017 as well, which is why the T version is slightly lighter and offers shorter ratios for the manual transmission as well as a mechanical rear differential lock. You're not going to want to hear this, but the T is actually quite a bit quicker with the PDK. The slight weight cut alone isn't enough to make the vehicle measurably faster, but with shorter ratios in the manual gearbox (hooray!) it's a cheeky tenth of a second quicker to 62mph, at 4.5 seconds.




Styling-wise, the 911 Carrera T can be recognized thanks to subtle details such as the aero-optimized front spoiler lip, Sport Design mirror caps in Agate Grey, and 20-inch Carrera S wheels in Titan Grey. 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.

Interestingly, the Carrera T swaps the regular car's seven gear ratios for shorter ones for the first few cogs, which gives it a little more zest off the line. The interior is black on black, but there's an optional Carrera T interior package that adds either yellow, red or silver contrast stitching. The 911 Carrera T will arrive in March 2018. The model, when on sale, starts from £85,576 in the United Kingdom, and deliveries start in January 2018. The optional rear-axle steering, which was not available for the 911 Carrera, can be had on the 911 Carrera T. This shortens the 0-60 time to 4.0 seconds.

With the manual, you're looking at 0-60 miles per hour acceleration in 4.3 seconds. Regardless of which gearbox you go for, a top speed of over 180mph is claimed. Note, with this option Porsche also removes the rear seats.
