Porsche recently revealed the new Porsche 911 Carrera T. The ‘T’ stands for touring and the model is a tribute to the 911 T model from 1968. With less weight, a manual transmission with a shorter constant transaxle ratio, and a standard mechanical rear differential lock, performance and driving pleasure are taken to a new level.

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 and sound insulation has been reduced for an added reduction in weight.

Thanks to all the weight-saving measures, the new 911 Carrera Touring tips the scales at 1,425 kg. The car is 20 kg lighter than the standard model and is the lightest in the 911 Carrera family.

The twin-turbo 3.0 flat-six engine develops 276 kW and 460 Nm of torque, the latter of which is available in a broad range between 1,750 and 5,000 rpm. Thanks to the manual transmission with a shorter constant transaxle ratio and the mechanical rear differential lock, the 911 Carrera T accelerates from zero to 100km/h in 4.3 seconds and reaches a top track speed of 293 km/h!

When equipped with the optional PDK transmission, the 0-100km/h can be reduced to only 4 seconds using the launch control feature.
