2023 Porsche 911 Carrera T debuts with seven-speed manual, no rear seat
The 2023 Porsche 911 Carrera T packs the entry-level model with performance parts for buyers who want something fun to drive but don’t need the fastest machine in the lineup. Deliveries begin in spring 2023 for a starting price of $118,050 after a $1,450 destination charge.
T stands for tour, and Porsche positions this model between the standards 911 Carrera and the more powerful Carrera S. Power comes from a twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six engine that generates 379 horsepower (283 kilowatts) and 331 pound-feet (449 Newton-meters) of torque.
The Carrera T’s standard transmission is a seven-speed manual transmission, which buyers can’t get on the base 911 Carrera. As a no-cost option, buyers can opt for the PDK eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. Plus, this model gets a mechanical limited-slip differential with Porsche Torque Vectoring, which is standard on the Carrera S but not available on the base vehicle.
With a seven-speed manual transmission, this model reaches 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 4.3 seconds. PDK shortens the acceleration time to 3.8 seconds. Regardless of the gearbox, the car reaches a top speed of 291 km/h.
Porsche loads the 911 Carrera T with a lot of other performance equipment. It comes with PASM Sport Suspension which lowers the ride height by 0.39 inches (10 millimeters). The Sport Chrono package and sports exhaust are also on the list of standard equipment. Rear axle steering is an option.
In order to save weight, Porsche installs less sound insulation, thinner glass and a smaller battery. This model also comes standard with a rear seat wipe. At no cost, the customer can designate the company to return the chairs. With a seven-speed manual and all the weight reduction, the Carrera T weighs 100 pounds (45.36 kilograms) less than the base 911 Carrera.
Aesthetically, the 911 Carrera T wears Agate Gray trim on the mirror caps and model badges. The exhaust has black tailpipes. It rides on Titanium Gray Carrera S wheels that measure 20 inches in diameter at the front and 21 inches at the rear.
Inside, this model comes with a GT Sport steering wheel and four-way adjustable Sport Plus seats. Dark gray, matte black and high-gloss black accents decorate the cabin. The optional Carrera T Interior Package allows buyers to choose Slate Gray or Lizard Green accents for seat belts, seat belts, stitching, 911 logos on the headrests and floor mats. If one ticks this box, it is possible to add leather upholstery to the doors, center console and dashboard. Separately, full bucket seats and 18-way adjustable sport seats Plus are available as upgrades.
