PORSCHE ADDS NEW 911 CARRERA T TO THE LINEUP - AND IT'S MANUAL!
Here at SXdrv Porsche is a much-loved brand, there are currently four different models in the SXdrv garages, and if a certain 6 numbers work like they should and the Lotto win happens, there will be at least two more added to the mix. There are so many to choose from all with different driving dynamics, engines and drivetrains that every time Porsche releases a new model, that’s the one wanted. Last week we wanted a GT3, same as a few months before that. Now attention has shifted to the latest addition to the lineup, the all-new Porsche 911 Carrera T. While it’s usually hard to choose what spec you want within a nameplate, for the 911 Carrera T it’s quite easy thanks to the mew in white coats at the R&D facility making sure the car can be had with a manual transmission. This is a win - we need to save the manuals! This new Carrera will no doubt be heaps of fun to drive while manually cog-swapping with a 7-speed manual. For those not willing to row a shifter there’s also an 8-speed PDK transmission available.
In the cabin the rear seats have been deleted which helps drop the weight of the 911 T to just 1,470 kg when optioned in manual, 35k kg less than that of the PDK option, and this makes it the lightest 911 with an entry-level engine setup. There is also reduced insulation, lightweight glass and a lightweight battery that helped drop the overall weight. The 911 Carrera T also offers optional Adaptive Sports Seats Plus or the even sportier and exceptionally lightweight full bucket seats featuring Race Tex seat centres. The interior package offers an optional extended leather interior that see the armrests on the door panels and centre console and the upper parts of the dashboard and door panel trim covered in the finest leather. Oh, and on that T in the model designation started way back in 1968 but stopped in 1973 and was only reintroduced in 2017 on the 991 911 Carrera T and has since been used on the 718 Cayman T, the 718 Boxster T and the Macan T.
The Porsche 911 Carrera T heads to showrooms in February 2023, but can already be ordered. The indicative pricing sees the car start retailing at € 123,845 including VAT (country-specific equipment dependant).
