New weight-optimized sports car: Porsche 911 Carrera T

Porsche enriches the 911 range with the launch of the new 911 Carrera T, a weight-optimized sports car. In the Porsche world, the letter “T” stands for the name “Touring” used to designate the brand’s models designed for transmission. A pure sporty driving experience. The 911 Carrera T comes standard with a 7-speed manual gearbox. An 8-speed PDK is available as an option. It also comes as standard without a rear seat (even with the free option you can add on as needed). Soundproofing has been intentionally reduced to a level that is absolutely necessary. Featuring a PASM sports chassis lowered by 10 mm, the new 911 Carrera T is an agile model designed to deliver an emotional driving experience. From winding mountain roads to long, straight country roads, the flat-six engine’s sound signature enhances driving pleasure indoors. PASM Sport Chassis and Sport Chrono Pack Standard The new 911 Carrera T sits between the 911 Carrera and the 911 Carrera S. Carrera T models are equipped with the twin-turbo engine found in Carrera models. With an output of 385 hp (283 kW) and a torque of 450 Nm, this block allows the sports car to go from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds (4.0 seconds with PDK transmission) and reach top speed. 291 km/h. In the Carrera T version, the standard equipment of the 911 Carrera S with manual gearbox is complemented by the Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) torque vector control system with mechanical limited-slip rear differential.

On request, the 911 Carrera T can also be equipped with rear-wheel steering, an equipment normally reserved for the 911 Carrera S and higher models. Among the equipment are 20-inch (front) and 21-inch (rear) “Carrera S” rims in titanium gray with size 245/35 ZR 20 tires on the front and size 305/30 ZR 21 on the rear. The 911 Carrera T, exclusive to the T model, is fitted as standard with a GT sports leather steering wheel, sports exhaust system and sports seats (4-way, electric).
