Less is more with hotshot Porsche 911 Carrera T

Less is more with hotshot Porsche 911 Carrera T

Given the cars' near identical performance attributes, Porsche tweaks the more expensive Carrera T's exterior styling to ensure that enthusiasts can convey with no more than a glance that they own the lightest 911 in the gated community. At 3,142 pounds, it's 11 pounds lighter than this year's base model Carrera.

Buyers can choose between nine different exterior colours, including Black, Lava Orange, Guards Red, Racing Yellow, White and Miami Blue, as well as metallic Carrara White, Jet Black and GT Silver.

Priced from £85,576, the new 911 T is not to be confused with the Targa model.

With the 911 Carrera T, Porsche is reviving the puristic concept behind the 911 T of 1968: less weight, shorter transmission ratios from the manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive with mechanical rear differential lock for an enhanced performance and intense driving pleasure. However, one of the biggest additions to the auto is the company's phenomenal PASM sports chassis set-up which, among other things, drops the car's ride height by 20mm, and which will come as standard, rather than optional equipment. Rear-wheel steering (an option normally reserved for more expensive 911s) is available at an extra cost. We're referring to the introduction of the 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T.

Along with 370 hp, the 911 Carrera T boasts 339 pound-feet of torque, resulting in a zero-to-60 miles per hour time of 4.3 seconds. The result: At an unladen weight of 1,452 kilograms, the two-seater is 20 kilograms lighter than a 911 Carrera with comparable equipment. The DCT drops this to 4.0 seconds. With the standard seven-speed manual, it gets to 60 in 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 182.

Inside, owners get a unique set of sport seats with fabric seat centers and "911" embossed in black on the headrests. The interior can be ha with contrasting colors in racing yellow, guards red, or GT silver.

Pricing starts from $103,150 including destination and it will start arriving dealerships in the U.S.by March 2018. Regardless of which gearbox you go for, a top speed of over 180mph is claimed.
