The New 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T

The New 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T

June 6, 2018

The new Porsche 911 Carrera T is a welcomed addition to Porsche sports coupe enthusiasts. This is a lean, lightweight car with a curb weight of only 3,142 pounds. There’s the suspension upgrade for this Carrera model to bring the vehicle 0.39 inches closer to the ground. It also has its own transaxle ratio and a short-throw shifter. The red engraved shift pattern on the shift knob and door pull loops made from webbing put the cherry on this unintimidating sports coupe. Here are the answers to the questions you might have on the new 911 Carrera T.


Is the Porsche 911 Carrera T a new model?


Yes, the 911 Carrera T is a new Porsche. There was a Porsche 911 T introduced back in 1968, but this is not that. There are some basic similarities, though. By the way, the ‘T’ stands for touring.


Is there room for four in the 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T?


Porsche decided to eliminate the back seats in the new 911 Carrera T so, as is, it is a two-seater. You can special order it with the back seats, though, and they will put them back in for you. Standard upholstery is Sport-Tex material; however, leather trim is an available option for an additional $3,480. Heated and ventilated seats are also available as well as Porsche’s Adaptive Sport Seats Plus with 18-way electric adjustment and raised and extended seat bolsters for added shoulder support.


Is the 911 Carrera T expensive?


This is definitely not an entry-level Porsche. The 911 Carrera T with a manual transmission has a starting MSRP of $102,100. If you get the automatic transmission, the price jumps up to $105,830.


Are there multiple trim levels for the new 911 Carrera T?


The 2018 911 Carrera T is technically a 911 Carrera trim level. It is, however, available with either an automatic or manual transmission.


Is the new 911 Carrera T a front-wheel-drive sports car?


No, the 911 Carrera T is not available with FWD. It is a rear-wheel-drive car. It is available with optional rear-wheel steering, though. That option adds around $2,000 to the price. When driving at speeds under 30 mph, the back wheels turn in the opposite way of the front wheels. When traveling at 50 mph, the back wheels turn in the same way as the front wheels. Computers determine which direction the back wheels should turn for optimum maneuverability at all other speeds.


How fuel efficient is the new 911 Carrera T?


Fuel consumption figures are not available at this time, but the new 911 Carrera T is not likely to be especially fuel efficient. A guesstimate based on the engine size would be about 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.


What type of engine does the 911 Carrera T come with?


The only engine available in the new 911 Carrera T is a twin-turbocharged boxer 6-cylinder engine that is situated in the rear. This engine makes 370 hp at 6,500 rpm and 331 lb-ft of torque at 1,700 to 5,000 rpm. Top track speed when it is equipped with the manual transmission is 182 mph. With the PDK automatic transmission, it has a top speed of 180 mph.


Does the new 911 Carrera T have a hi-tech infotainment system?


It comes standard with the Porsche Communication Management system. This system includes a high-resolution touchscreen and connectivity for iPhones with either an AUX input or USB port as well as Bluetooth connectivity. Jukebox with two SD card readers is also included as well as a CD/DVD drive. A Bose stereo system is an available option, though, for $1,600. An even better Burmester stereo system is also available for an additional $5,300.


Is there a sports car that is comparable to the 911 Carrera T?


That’s a little difficult to answer since this new model has only recently become available in North America. Probably the most comparable would be the 911 Carrera. It isn’t exactly the same but is certainly similar and costs $91,100. The new Lexus LC should also be on your short test-drive list. It is a RWD luxury sports car with room for four. A 471-hp 5.0-L V8 engine comes standard in the Lexus LC along with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The LC has more active-assist safety features and has a base MSRP of $92,000.


Is the 911 Carrera T equipped with active-assist safety systems?


It comes with the Porsche Stability Management suite of safety features that includes traction control and stability control. Porsche doesn’t offer many of the more advanced active-assist safety features available on other new cars. Blind-spot monitoring should be available on the Carrera T for around $850. Porsche also offers adaptive cruise control that will apply the brakes if the driver doesn’t when a collision is imminent. Forward-collision warning, front and rear automated emergency braking and automatic high-beams should also be available.
