Porsche 911 T returns 40 years after original model's debut

Porsche 911 Carrera T revealed as pared-back special

Porsche 911 Carrera T revealed as pared-back variant

You get hardware on this model that is optional or unavailable on the base Carrera. In the end, Porsche 911 Carrera coupe T Coupe is the lightest model in the range Porsche 911 Carrera. Of note here is that the top speed on the manual version, which is an offshoot of the PDK, actually happens on the sixth gear, not the top gear, which is basically an overdrive gear.

The drive mode selector switch is on the GT sports steering wheel, race vehicle style, and the four-way electrically adjustable stand sports seats are trimmed in black with centre panels in Sport-Tex fabric and the 911 logo stitched into each head restraint; full bucket seats are an option. The stripped-out Carrera T is £7685 more expensive than the standard version for some reason.

Pollution killing more people than war and violence, says report
Among the authors of the study are former environment minister Jairam Ramesh and IIT-Delhi's Prof Mukesh Khare. Air pollution, the leading cause , killed 6.5 million people around the world.

But because this auto is all about purity, the majority of owners are going to specify it with the six-speed manual gearbox complete with shortened gear-shifter, and that will mean a slightly slower (4.5 seconds) 0-100km/h time but the same 290km/h+ top speed. With the PDK transmission and the Sport Chrono Package, the cars run neck-and-neck, at four seconds flat.

It's the inside that counts though and the new 911 T takes true inspiration from the name by offering an interior devoid of rear seats, a radio (this can be installed upon request), and proper door handles in favour of lighter fabric straps. Here's more. Based on the 911 Carrera and producing 370 hp/450 Nm, the 911 Carrera T (for Touring) also boasts some equipment not available for the standard Carrera.

Up front, a different front spoiler lip signals the special nature of this model, while door stripes and a large "T" on the engine cover make sure Porschephiles know this is the lightest one of them all. Porsche offers the auto in nine exterior colors, nearly half of them also suitable for Jelly Bellies. They face a GT Sport steering wheel with a driving mode selection switch. The interior can be ha with contrasting colors in racing yellow, guards red, or GT silver. This new Carrera T model also comes with the option to choose full bucket seats for the first time.

Weight reduction plays a part in the Carrera T's incrementally improved performance, too: the car's rear and side windows are made from thinner glass, there's less sound deadening and Porsche has removed the rear seats. The SportDesign mirrors are painted Agate Grey and the auto has 20-inch Carrera S wheels in Titanium grey.
