Porsche is reinvigorating the concept of the puristic 911 T model from 1968 with the new 2018 911 Carrera T. With less weight, a manual transmission with a shorter constant transaxle ratio, and a standard mechanical rear differential lock, performance and driving pleasure are heightened. The 911 Carrera T (“T” stands for Touring) is also equipped with several performance-enhancing features that are not available on the standard 911 Carrera. This includes the PASM Sport Suspension with a 0.39-inch (10 mm) lower ride height, a shortened gear lever with an embossed shift pattern in red, and seat centers made of Sport-Tex material. Rear-axle steering is not available for the standard 911 Carrera but is an option for the 911 Carrera T.
Based on the 370 hp 911 Carrera Coupe, the new model features unique design elements. The 911 Carrera T is equipped to be light and sporty: The rear windshield and rear side windows are made of lightweight glass, and door opener loops on the inside replace the conventional door openers. Similar to the 911 GTS models, sound insulation has been reduced. Weighing 3,142 pounds, the 911 Carrera T is the lightest model in the 911 Carrera range.
