The all-new Porsche 911 Carrera T winks at the past

by Sales Team on October 30, 2017


Porsche knows how to take one model and divide it into several versions that cater to the various needs and interests of its clients. Case in point is the all-new Porsche 911 Carrera T unveiled late October. Porsche is not only bringing back a name that first appeared in 1968, it is also catering to owners who are very picky about weight and performance.
Porsche 911 Carrera T: A lighter Porsche 911

Like its predecessor, the new Porsche 911 Carrera T implements significant weight saving measures that are designed to lower the number that shows up when it goes on the scale.
The lateral windows are thinner and made of lighter glass, the interior handles are replaced by straps like you find in a Porsche Cayman GT4 (among other performance Porsche models), and there are no more rear seats. Buyers can also remove the PCM infotainment system, and there are no rear seats anymore.
Overall weight decreases by 20 kilos thanks to these changes. Power, on the other hand, stays the same. As we know, more power and less weight means improved performance, and the 911 Carrera T is all about going fast while maintaining control.
Powered by a flat-six twin-turbo 3.0-liter engine, the 911 T sends 370 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels. Top speed is

set at 293 km/h if you opt for the 7-speed manual transmission, and 291 km/h with the available PDK dual-clutch automatic. Getting to 100 km/h only takes 4.5 seconds.
A slightly different look for the Porsche 911 Carrera T
The Porsche 911 Carrera T isn’t remarkably different from other 911 models (excluding the GTS and Turbo models), but it can be recognized quickly thanks to the dark grey strip at the bottom of the door and its anthracite wheels. Three metallic colors are offered along with the four standard 911 colors (black, white, red, and yellow).
The Porsche 911 Carrera T starts at $ 116,500 with the manual, or $ 120,750 with the PDK.
Regardless of your needs, you are sure to find a Porsche 911 model that satisfies every single one of them. To learn more about the Porsche 911 Carrera T or the rest of the Porsche 911 lineup, contact us today at Porsche Center Calgary.
