Just because someone is rich enough to buy a Porsche 911 doesn’t mean they have enough money in the bank to buy a nearly $250,000 truck special. GT3RSOf course, those who want something wild and winged like that in the first place are likely to be driving enthusiasts lining up with the 2023 Porsche 911 Carrera T, and the 992 as the most cost-effective of the generation. Return. How to get a performance-oriented 911 (relatively speaking).

The price is correct (T)

Starting at $118,050, the new 911 T is priced right between the base ’23 Carrera ($107,550) and Carrera S ($124,450). Both of these prices are for the coupe. This is because it is the only body style offered in the T. There is also no all-wheel drive option. The Carrera T is rear-wheel drive only, with the rear seats removed to reduce mass and some of the sound insulation. But if you want the 911’s almost pointless rear jump seat, Porsche will reinstall it for free.

Other weight-saving features of the Carrera T include thinner glass, a smaller battery and a standard seven-speed manual transmission. All of this contributes to the T being 100 pounds lighter than the regular Carrera, which is only offered in eight gears, Porsche says. Dual clutch automatic (PDK). As with rear seat removal, PDK is available at no extra charge.

better parts than the base car

Both gearboxes are paired with the same twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six found at the rear of the regular Carrera. Both produce 379 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque. Porsche estimates that the 911 T will go from 0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds (manual) or 3.8 seconds (automatic), reaching a top speed of 181 mph. I think both acceleration times are conservative. 2020 911 Carrera with PDK scores 60 in just 3.2 ticks.

Compared to the regular Carrera, the T has performance hardware that even the base coupe lacks. For example, all 911 Ts are equipped with a mechanical limited-slip differential with Porsche’s torque vectoring system. It also comes standard with the brand’s active suspension (commonly known as PASM) with specially tuned dampers. Another feature not available on the Carrera but optional on the T is rear-axle steering. A set of gray 20-inch front and 21-inch rear wheels is also inherited from the Carrera S, with 245-section wide tires on the front and wide 305 on the rear.

A Peek Inside the Purist 911

The 911 T’s interior is nothing special. In base form, the cabin is trimmed with a combination of dark grey, matt black and glossy black accents (yawn). Its standard front seats have only four basic adjustments. Thankfully, these buckets can be upgraded to add 18 directions of adjustment. For those who find it too luxurious for a light car, Porsche offers a carbon fiber seat set.

For those who want a more sophisticated Carrera T interior, there are options. It includes packages to add stitched upholstery, 911 logos on the headrests and seat belts in Slate Gray or Spicy Lizard Green. One of these colors can also be applied to the stripes on the seat insert. Also available are gray or green logos and stitching on the floor mats and leather wrap on the dashboard, doors and center console. However, Porsche has not disclosed how much these extras will cost.

Another notable feature of the 2023 Porsche 911 Carrera T is that it is the first model that can be customized. Their cool Paint to Sample programcontains another 110 painting options. The coupe will hit U.S. dealer showrooms next spring.
