Porsche Unveils the New 911 Carrera T
A car made for drivers, not collectors, adopting a 'less is more' philosophy, the Carrera T is based on the already much-celebrated Porsche 911 Carrera.
Less is More
The T stands for 'Touring', however luxuries such as a radio, navigation system and phone connectivity are all optional extras. Along with removing the rear-seats, using thinner glass and a reduction in sound-proofing has helped save over 20kg compared with a standard Porsche 911 Carrera. This is a proper driver's car after all.
Style-wise, the Carrera T can be recognised by a number of styling ques. At the front, an optimised aerodynamic front spoiler lip is used, along with 20" Carrera S wheels in a 'Titan Grey' finish. Carrera T logos which run along the bottom of the door above the side skirts ensure you know this is a Carrera T, along with Carrera T model designation on the rear of the car. A sports exhaust is included as standard, which uses two pipes, both centrally positioned to set it apart from the standard Carrera.
Thanks to the unrelenting appeal of the 911, demand is always high. The recently launched new 911 GT3 and 911 R have seen demand and prices climb dramatically, and this will in all likelihood be the case with the all-new 911 GT2 RS, which was unveiled earlier this year; the most powerful 911 ever.
Interestingly, only a couple of weeks ago, Porsche announced a trio of 911 Carrera 4 GTS British Legends Editions. Essentially, a special edition version of the Carrara 4 GTS made to celebrate various drivers racing success. These again, will demand a premium over the regular 911 Carrera GTS.
With Porsche stating that this 911 Carrera T is a car for drivers rather than collectors, and being based and priced more towards the standard Carrera, the brand-new Porsche Carrera T seems to be yet another glowing success for Porsche.
