T is for touring - Porsche entices connoisseurs with the 911 Carrera T

Porsche 911 Carrera T revealed as pared-back special

The rear view is characterized by the slats in the rear lid grille, the Porsche logo, the "911 Carrera T" model designation in Agate Grey and the sports exhaust system are standard, with centrally positioned twin tailpipes painted in black.

The "T" in the new 911 Carrera T is Porsche's way of reminding people of the 911 T of 1968, which favored a pure driving experience above everything else. Color options run the gamut from yellow to orange, black, red, white, silver, and blue. Now, Porsche has brought the name back, but not as a base model.

Fitted with Porsche's sports chassis, a lower ride height, Sport-Chrono package and shorter gear shift, this vehicle is built to be even more dynamic than the standard edition. Steering actions are completed via the GT sports steering wheel with leather rim, and the mode switch provided on the steering wheel as standard allows the driver to select different driving programmes.

In keeping with the "pure" brief, the 911's seven-speed manual is standard, with a shortened lever for an even more precise feeling shift. This new Carrera T model also comes with the option to choose full bucket seats for the first time.

From the Carrera and the Carrera 4S to the Targa GTS and beyond, the 911 range is growing so quickly and offers so many standard and optional equipment choices that it can be the automotive equivalent of trying to order breakfast in an American diner.

Visually represented by a 2-door auto differs from other models of the family Porsche 911 new original logo, slim black external graphics, adjustable seats and reduced sound insulation, which helped reduce the car's weight.

The Carrera T shares its 3-litre flat-six turbocharged engine with the standard Carrera, producing 365bhp and a stout 332lb ft of torque. At 1,425 kg, it's 20 kg lighter than a comparable 911 Carrera.

Inside, the 911 Carrera T is presented in black "Sport-Tex" fabric for the sports seats, which are adjustable in four ways. The manual model has a top track speed of 182 miles per hour. However, thanks to the improved weight-to-power ratio (3.85 kg/hp), the shorter rear axle ratio, and mechanical differential lock, the 911 Carrera T is 0.1 seconds quicker from 0 to 100 km/h, covering the sprint in 4.5 seconds. Vehicles are expected to reach U.S. dealers by March of next year. Regardless of which gearbox you go for, a top speed of over 180mph is claimed.
