Diet for the entry-level Elfer

Different than nearly 50 years ago, Porsche has no cheaper basic car in mind. Rather, it is a 911 Carrera with special equipment, and reduced weight. The recovery of the missing seats and the Infotainment System PCM, but both are available at no extra charge. The door panels have normally closed loops, the discs on the rear and in the rear are made of lightweight glass. With 1.425 kg of curb weight, the 911 Carrera T is 20 kilograms lighter than his brother without, point.

At the rear of the 911-Fan encounters painted on the modified slats in the cover, and black, center-mounted tailpipes of the standard sports exhaust system. Inside counteract electrically adjustable sports seats with center sections in a Sport-Tex, the lightweight thoughts. Optional full bucket seats are available.

Slightly faster

Unchanged the Biturbo Boxer is left with six cylinders and three liters of displacement: He makes 370 HP and brings it to a maximum of 450 Newton-metres of torque. Because the power to weight ratio improved to 3.85 kilograms per HP and a shorter rear-axle-Translation plus a mechanical transverse lock on Board, sprints to the T in 4.5 seconds to 100 km/h. improving to the normal 911 Carrera: 0.1 seconds. Optionally, the PDK transmission is in the program, hereby the Zero-to-100-value at 4.2 seconds. Top? More than 290 km/h for both versions.

Pricing is for lovers

Unlike the historic model of the Porsche 911 Carrera T is not a bargain. Quite the contrary: 107.553 euros must be used to scroll from January 2018, are almost € 10,000 more than the 911 Carrera. As seen, the T is not only for Tradition but also for tax.(rh)
