The New 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T
Reincarnation is possible according to Porsche, because they are bringing back the spirit of the classic 911 T from 1968 with the introduction of the new 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T. The T for Touring has a lower weight body, a mechanical rear differential lock, and a manual transmission with a shorter constant transaxle ratio for an enhanced driving experience. The 911 Carrera T also has performance enhancements not available on the standard Carrera, including a PASM sport suspension with a lower ride height, a shortened gear lever, and the use of Sport-Tex in the seats. Owners can also opt for rear-axle steering, another feature not available in the standard Carrera.
The Porsche 911 Carrera T is the lightest model in the 911 Carrera group by employing features such as lightweight glass, interior door loops instead of handles, and reduced sound insulation. The result is a performance vehicle, with additional features such as an aerodynamic front spoiler lip, 20-inch Carrera S wheels in titanium grey, the standard Sport Exhaust system with black tips, and 4-way electrically adjustable Sport Seats Plus. Owners can order the 911 Carrera 911 T with full bucket seats (the first time on a 911 Carrera model) and eliminate the rear seat. The Carrera T interior package comes with a choice of contrasting colors in Racing Yellow, Guards Red, or GT Silver.
The new 2018 911 Carrera T has an improved power-to-weight ratio than its predecessors, thanks to a twin-turbo 3.0 liter flat-six developing 370 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque. It will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds, which is 0.1 seconds faster than the standard 911 Carrera. With the manual transmission, top track speed is rated at 182 mph. Using the optional PDK transmission with its standard launch control, 0-60 time is 4.0 seconds with a track speed of 180 mph.
