Porsche 911 Carrera T revealed, arriving Down Under Q2 2018

Porsche 911 Carrera T revealed, arriving Down Under Q2 2018”

Because all new 911 Carreras are turbocharged, you might think that the T stands for Turbo. 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. In addition, the 911 Carrera T comes with features that are not available for the base 911 Carrera, including the 20-mm lower PASM sports chassis, the weight-optimized Sport Chrono Package, as well as a shortened shift lever.

Building on the basics of the standard entry-level Carrera, the new Carrera T (for Touring) features a lighter weight thanks to 20kg of savings through thinner glass, reduced sound deadening and the deletion of rear seats.

Conceived as a back-to-basics model based upon the standard 911 Carrera, the 911 Carrera T revives the puristic approach brought to earlier 911 models, including its 1968 namesake the 911 T, with a stripped out interior and the adoption of a series of performance enhancing features not usually made available on the 911 Carrera in a bid to ramp up its dynamic properties and provide a more visceral driving experience. The "911 Carrera T" logos represent another distinctive feature at the side. The manual gear stick is also shorter than standard. It also says the 911 Carrera T reaches 124mph from standstill in 15.1sec. When ordered with the optional Full Bucket Seats (available on a 911 Carrera model for the first time), rear seats are deleted. The driver enjoys black, four-way, electric sports seats with a seat centre in Sport-Tex fabric, while the headrests feature a "911" logo stitched in black. The manual version reaches a top track speed of 182 miles per hour.

All that adds up to just a 4.3 second sprint to 100km/h - 0.1 seconds quicker than a standard 911 Carrera. Finally, the GT sports steering wheel, red shift pattern for the shortened shift lever of the seven-speed manual gearbox, and black trim complete the package.

Landing in U.S. Porsche dealerships in March 2018, we will keep you updated with further info around Australian availability as more details on the 2018 911 Carrera T come to hand.
