Porsche expands the 911 model line with the 911 Carrera T (“Touring”) variant that comes with equipment that enhances both driving pleasure and performance. The new vehicle is fitted with a seven-speed manual transmission and rear seat delete as standard, though the rear seat is available as a no-cost option if desired. With the help of the standard seven-speed manual transmission and several features that focus on saving weight, the new 911 Carrera T weighs 3,254 lbs., making it 100 lbs. lighter than a standard 911 Carrera (PDK only). It is equipped with a PASM Sport Suspension as standard.
The new 911 Carrera T adopts the twin-turbo six-cylinder engine from the 911 Carrera generating 379 hp and 331 lb.-ft. of torque. The T variant also utilizes the mechanical limited slip differential with Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) that is standard on the 911 Carrera S and is not available for the 911 Carrera. Additionally, the new model also comes standard with the Sport Chrono Package and PASM Sport Suspension, the latter of which is optional for the 911 Carrera S and not available for the 911 Carrera. Rear Axle Steering is optionally available with the T variant only. With the standard seven-speed manual transmission, the 911 Carrera T accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds. With the no-cost eight-speed PDK the 0-60 mph sprint is reduced to 3.8 seconds. The top track speed is 181 mph regardless of transmission choice.
The car sits on Titanium Grey Carrera S wheels measuring 20 inches in diameter at the front and 21 inches at the rear. The wheels are fitted with tires measuring 245/35 (front) and 305/30 (rear). The 911 Carrera T also comes standard with a GT Sport steering wheel, Sport Exhaust System and four-way Sport Seats Plus. Along with the deletion of the rear seats and the reduced sound deadening, the 911 T is fitted with thinner glass and a smaller, more compact battery.
The interior of the 911 Carrera T is charcterized by special dark grey accents. Contrasting elements such as the upper and lower mirror covers as well as the model designation on the doors and rear of the car are painted in Agate Grey. Furthermore, the Sport Exhaust System features high-gloss black tailpipes. There are standard 4-way adjustable Sort Seats Plus. Interior trim in matte black and decorative inlays in high-gloss black round off the T package. Customers can also select the optional Carrera T Interior Package. This adds seat belts in Slate Grey or Lizard Green, stripes on the seat centers in one of these colors, decorative stitching and 911 logos in the headrests. Floor mats with logos and stitching in Lizard Green or Slate Grey are also part of this optional package.
Optionally, the 911 Carrera T can be ordered with 18-way Adaptive Sport Seats Plus or the particularly sporty and light Full Bucket Seats, the latter of which feature seat centers in RaceTex. The deleted rear seats can be re-equipped at no charge, though not in conjunction with carbon fiber Full Bucket Seats. The Carrera T Interior Package can also be enhanced with leather, which is used to cover the door armrests and panels, center console and dashboard.
The new 911 Carrera T is available in, black, white, Guards Red and Racing Yellow as well as the following metallic colors: Jet Black, Gentian Blue, Ice Grey and GT Silver. Chalk, Ruby Star Neo, Carmine Red, Shark Blue and Python Green are also available as special colors.
The new car will reach U.S. dealers by Spring 2023 and has an MSRP of $116,600 not including a $1,450 delivery, processing and handling fee.
