Porsche 911 Carrera T, sport sans excès

Porsche 911 Carrera T (2017)

Comme évoqué voici quelques semaines déjà, Porsche ajoute à sa gamme une version plus radicale de la 911. Une 911 Carrera T qui se veut plus sportive, sans non plus recourir à une débauche de puissance. Dans la très large famille de la Porsche 911, les Turbo, GT3 ou GT2 tiennent le haut du pavé. […]

Cet article Porsche 911 Carrera T, sport sans excès est apparu en premier sur le blog auto.

Introducing the Porsche 911T. The Lightest Modern 911 Yet!

There are now eight families of 911. There are the Carreras, the GTS, the Targa 4, the Turbo, the Turbo S Exclusive Series, the GT3, the GT2 RS, and now the 911 T. If you count each body style family variant individually, there are now 23 distinct 911s to choose from.

Where does the new 911 T fit in?

It shares its 370 horsepower, turbocharged flat-six with the base Carrera, but not the short ratio gearbox it’s equipped with. That short-ratio gearbox also includes a mechanical limited slip differential. The 911 T is rear wheel drive only. The rear glass is thinner than in the standard Carrera. The seats have cloth center sections. It is 20kg lighter than a standard Carrera, making it the lightest 911 in the range at 3,142 pounds. Porsche calls it a successor to the original 911T of 1968. Is that accurate?

Divining the T

The new Porsche 911 T features unique graphics, a unique front fascia, as well as Agate grey badging not used on the standard Carrera. Under the skin, the T also has PASM Sports Chassis standard, 20mm lowered suspension, weight-optimized Sport Chrono, and a shorted shift leather. Rear-axle steering is also available as an option, though it is not available on a standard Carrera. The interior door handles are cloth pulls, 4-way electrically adjusted Sport Seats Plus are standard but GT3-style fixed back buckets are available as an option (when so ordered Porsche will delete the rear seats as well). That’s all well and good, and the car will probably be a great drive.

Does All The Above Make it a T?

Back in late 1969 (the article was published in January, 1970) Car and Driver brought together what was then Porsche’s full lineup. Oh, and they also brought along Mark Donohue for his professional opinion. At that point the lineup contained just four models; the 912, 911T, 911E and 911S. The 911T was the « touring » oriented model, and it was also the least expensive and least powerful six-cylinder model in the range. Fair enough, as the new T shares its engine with the standard Carrera. The Car and Driver staff of 1969 also praised the original T for its tractable, forgiving engine. Given the current Carrera’s broad, flat, accessible torque, the story will likely be much the same for the new car.

What About The Interior

Where the original Porsche 911T did not come unglued was the cabin. The original T was praised for being comfortable and easy to drive. It was not a model with thin windows, reduced sound deadening, and a more merciless approach to performance than lesser 911s. Apart from the 912, there wasn’t a Porsche model below the T. Apart from poor heaters and bewildering ventilation in all of the classic 911s, the Car and Driver staff actually praised the level of equipment in all three 911s and the 912, though the 912 was said to be a bit under-instrumented.

Why then does the new T used in the press photos lack even a radio? Instead, the radio is a $1,600-$5,300 option. A radio comes standard in a GT3, with radio delete available as a no-cost option. The rest of the option list is baffling as well. The rears seats are deleted when ordering Full Bucket Seats, but rear footwell lighting is available, for example.

While Porsche went to great lengths to save 20kg, you can add it all back with a full suite of options. As on virturally all other 911s, extended leather and a sunroof are available. So is the option to delete the lightweight rear glass. Deleting the lightweight glass is a no cost option.

I want to love it, because it looks so right, but maybe I just don’t get it

The new fascias look spectacular! The Sport-Tex upholstery is great, indeed I was a big fan of it in the GT3 Touring. I think cloth is extremely appropriate in a sports car. In the T the Sport-Tex is available with body colored elements in Speed Yellow and Guards Red, and the gauges can be color-keyed as well. It really looks the business.

Indeed, the T will probably be excellent, quibbles about the name aside.

I don’t want to come out and say this makes the T a bad Porsche. It’s just that given the position of the original T in the lineup, I think the nomenclature makes this new version confusing.

The 991s are so good that a Carrera S even made it into Motor Trend’s Best Driver’s Car. It fared very well against much more focused machines, like the Viper ACR, Acura NSX and Camaro SS 1LE, claiming third place overall. The T’s upgrades over the standard Carrera only seek to improve the driving characteristics of the standard Porsche, an approach adding performance in a different way to the S.

Perhaps the best way to think of the T is as an analogue to the GTS.

What the GTS is to the Carrera S, the T is to the standard Carrera. It’s a more focused version of essentially the same tool. Being the lightest 911 in the range is no small honor, even if negating that advantage seems a little too easy.

2018 Porsche 911 T Pricing and Availability

Porsche’s website lists the T’s base price at $102,100 for US buyers, and $116,500 for Canadian buyers. Both of these prices undercut the S, while offering a lot of equipment the S does not include as standard. Deliveries will begin in the first quarter of 2018 for the US and Canada.

Our Favorite Porsches on eBay: Volume 97

We’ve been compiling some amazing Porsche models on eBay for over two years now, and we’ve seen some pretty astonishing cars pop up now and again. Keep in mind, some of these Porsches could be great collection investments, while others might prove to do more financial harm than good.

Interested in Having Your Porsche Featured Here

Every other week, we feature 5 of our favorite Porsches on eBay. That post is sent out to our mailing list of more than 17,000 Porsche owners and fans and is seen by 10s of thousands of other readers who visit our site directly. If you’re selling a Porsche on eBay and would like to see it featured here, just shoot us an email with the details and we’ll be back in touch. Otherwise, feel free to check out all the other eBay listings we have on our Porsches for sale pages.

1. 1972 Porsche 911T Targa For Sale

1972 Porsche 911T Targa for sale

There’s hot and heavy bidding on this ’72 911T Targa said to have 96,885 original miles on the odometer. While the detailed listing mentions that the motor is original, they don’t specify the same thing on the transmission so I would want to look into that before bidding. Apparently stolen over 25-years ago, and the original VIN markings removed in an attempt to conceal the fact, this Porsche has a Massachusetts assigned VIN now. However, the seller has documentation about the theft and the original title and VIN. If you like your Porsches as drivers and you like them with a story (for negotiating benefits) this just might be the 911 for you.

For more pictures, pricing and information, check out the full listing on eBay.

2. 2004 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet For Sale

Brown is beautiful and Burgandy is better. At least that’s the way I feel about this Burgandy over tan 2004 996 Carrera S Cab. So many of these examples are silver or black it just gets boring. This 996 is for sale by the third owner. According to the listing it seems to have a solid service history, but still retains its original clutch and IMS bearing. So, budget for those when bidding and you should be all set.

3. 1960 Porsche 356 T5 Euro Twin Grill Coupe For Sale

Porsches were meant to be driven and driven regularly. However, with pricing for air-cooled and classic version through the roof, it’s hard to justify putting miles on a collectible version. But what about a driver’s car? That’s what this Porsche looks like. While definitely the recipient of an older restoration, it would be hard to consider it concours ready. That’s what we like about it. Sure, some of the gaps and panels need a little adjustments, but do you really care? For the right price this could be a unique daily driver that will turn heads everywhere you go.

4. Porsche 962 Race Car Jim Busby Go-Kart For Sale

Jim Busby Porsche 962 Go Kart for sale

We’ve featured these Jim Busby Porsche 962 karts before. In fact, this one sold to one of our readers just a few weeks ago. The cart we’re featuring this week is every bit as nice, it’s just been painted. As a result, there’s an opportunity here for someone to pick up one of these rare karts on the cheap and perhaps custom paint it to match their favorite livery or their own Porsche’s color combo. For those who want originality, it wouldn’t be too hard to go back to the simple BFGoodrich livery the Kart originally came equipped with.

For more pictures, pricing and information, check out the full listing on eBay.

5. 1993 Porsche 928 GTS For Sale

While not as rare as the 5-Spd Unicorns you see on sites like Willhoit (one of our long-term sponsors). This ’93 928 GTS is still a very rare beast in its own right. According to the seller its one of only 406 brought to the North American market between ’93 and ’95. While this Porsche does have a story (the nose was repainted after a mechanic drove it into tool cabinet in the shop) the seller says they have complete documentation on the incident including a receipt for $8,000 in paint work from one of only two Porsche Certified Body Shops in their state. With just under 65k miles, this looks like it could be a great find for a 928 enthusiast. In fact, with the lower asking price I would consider it a driver vs. a collectible and enjoy the hell out of it!
