Porsche 911 Carrera T revealed as pared-back variant

Porsche 911 Carrera T revealed as pared-back special

Porsche has unveiled the 2018 Porsche 911 T, which is inspired by the puristic 1968 911 T. This special 911 does away with several features to drop a few pounds and also comes standard with a manual transmission and a mechanical rear differential lock.

The manual version of the Porsche 911 Carrera T goes from zero to sixty miles per hour in 4.3 seconds, just a shade under the 4.4 seconds on the base Carrera. Fuel consumption is 9.5L/100km. It uses lightweight glass in the rear windows, and has less sound deadening insulation. The rear seats can also be deleted when you order the optional Full Bucket Seats.

The net result is a 20kg weight saving over the standard 911, with the vehicle weighing in at 1425kg.

A war over bots & Rahul Gandhi tweets
The report has even stated the alleged bots were from Russia, Kazakhstan or Indonesia. Gandhi and Irani fought the political battle in Lok Sabha election 2014 from Amethi.

The backside has black exhaust tips. A black-and-gray theme runs throughout the outside of the auto, with gray mirrors, gray 20-inch wheels lifted off the Carrera S, gray badging, black exhaust tips, and a black stripe down the side that reads "911 Carrera T".

The T interior package allows for contrasting colours of Racing Yellow, Guards Red or GT Silver. Inside, the sports seats get a Sport-Tex fabric center area and "911" logos stitched in the headrests. Buyers can also get optional rear-axle steering on the auto.

Despite the focus on weight saving, Porsche has provided the 911 Carrera T with a number of features not available for the 911 Carrera, including a standard PASM sports suspension, which lowers its ride height by 20mm.

FDA approves 2nd gene therapy targeting non-Hodgkin lymphomas
DLBCL is the most common aggressive non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, accounting for three out of every five cases. While this therapy may be groundbreaking, it comes with potentially lethal side effects.

Available to order now prior to a planned start to United Kingdom deliveries in January, the new 911 Carrera T is differentiated from its standard sibling by a number of subtle exterior styling changes, including an altered front bumper with a more prominent splitter element, grey metallic exterior mirror housings, 20-inch alloy wheels, reworked slats within the engine lid and centrally mounted tailpipes pained in black. This shortens the 0-60 time to 4.0 seconds. It's a regular production model, unlike the 911 R, so demand won't surpass supply. Steering actions are completed via the GT sports steering wheel with leather rim, and the mode switch provided on the steering wheel as standard allows the driver to select different driving programmes. Exclusive to the T is the option of red, silver, or yellow accenting for the interior, while door loops replace handles as in other pared-back 911 models.

The first deliveries of available new items is scheduled for March 2018.
