The Exceptional Porsche 911 Carrera T Returns

For those who truly appreciate the Porsche driving experience, the 911 Carrera T awaits


  • T is for Touring.

  • 911 is for driving pleasure.

  • The 911 Carrera T is timeless.


Porsche has recently opted to further elaborate its collection of “T” models by introducing not only the 911 Carrera T but also both the 718 Cayman T and Boxster T, and the Macan T.

A Porsche “T” is the simplest and purest way to indulge in the automaker’s unmatched driving experience. This is why the Carrera T, like the others, starts out as a “base” model. Based in the Carrera, the Carrera T will be powered by the twin-turbocharged 3.0L H6 engine that produces 379hp and 331 lb.-ft. of torque. Buyers will have the choice between a seven-speed manual gearbox as standard with an eight-speed PDK.

The 911 Carrera T will include standard equipment found in the Carrera S and will also be privy to options typically reserved for this car. They include Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV) with a mechanical rear differential lock (with the manual transmission), rear-axle steering, and more. To note, the base Carrera cannot be equipped with the manual transmission. As such, the manual Carrera T, with the same power, weighs in at 35kg less for a total of 1,470kg.

For the $132,000 admission price, the Porsche 911 Carrera T will be delivered with the Sport Chrono package and the PASM sports suspension (-10 mm), 20- and 21-inch Titanium Gray Carrera S wheels in front and back, respectively, with 245/35 (front) and 305/30 (rear) sized tires. The 911 Carrera T also comes standard with the GT sports steering wheel, sports exhaust system, and Sports Seats Plus (four-way, electric).

The Carrera T will also feature a number of visual highlights such as Dark Gray as the top and bottom trim on the exterior mirrors, door logos and rear logos, and more. At the rear, the sports exhaust system’s tailpipes are high-gloss black. The cabin, delivered without rear seats for extra weight savings, earns decorative matte black trim.

As always, Porsche owners can truly customize their cars with an optional Interior package, full bucket seats, and access to Paint to Sample program.

The first Porsche 911 Carrera T cars are expected to arrive in Canada next spring.
