Available to order now, the Carrera T will reach customers in January of 2018.
Porsche has unveiled the 2018 Porsche 911 T, which is inspired by the puristic 1968 911 T. This special 911 does away with several features to drop a few pounds and also comes standard with a manual transmission and a mechanical rear differential lock.
The twin-turbo three-litre flat six is as per the Carrera, with 272kW and 450Nm, on tap from 1750-5000rpm, but thanks to a power-to-weight ratio of 191kW per ton and shorter gear ratios, it'll hit 100km/h off a standing start in 4.5 seconds (a tenth quicker than the "standard" Carrera) 200km/h in 15.1 seconds. Fuel consumption is 9.5L/100km. It can be had with Full Bucket Seats, an option that also entirely deletes the rear seats (if you can call them that).

Pierre attend the event along with 200 other guests at the National Museum of American History. Trump changed into sneakers for the arrival of Air Force One in Corpus Christi.
The result is a claimed kerb weight of 1425kg, some 20kg less than the standard 911 Carrera.
A sporty design and unique appearance The design of the 911 Carrera T highlights the emotionality and sportiness of the coupé with rear-axle transmission. Exterior color options include Lava Orange, Black, Guards Red, Racing Yellow, White, and Miami Blue, while metallic colors of Carrera White, Jet Black, and GT Silver are available. To balance the ledger the Carrera T also adds features including 20-inch wheels, a throatier exhaust, sports steering wheel and sharper front bumper that add well more than $20,000 in options to the price of a regular coupe.
Despite the focus on weight saving, Porsche has provided the 911 Carrera T with a number of features not available for the 911 Carrera, including a standard PASM sports suspension, which lowers its ride height by 20mm. The Sport Chrono Pack's driving mode switch on the steering wheel is fitted as standard, but not the trademark clock/lap-timer, Porsche spec-spotters will note. A new addition is the T interior package, which creates an even sportier look with the contrasting colours of Racing Yellow, Guards Red or GT Silver. The model, when on sale, starts from £85,576 in the United Kingdom, and deliveries start in January 2018. Technically that is faster than the 911 Carrera (though not Ford's 2018 Mustang GT), which takes 0.1 seconds longer to go from zero to 60 miles per hour. Either way, top speed is quoted at "more than 290km/h".
