Porsche 911 Carrera T 2023: lightest 992 model revealed, confirmed for Australia


The Porsche 911 Carrera T sits between the Carrera and Carrera S in the iconic sports car lineup and weighs just 1470kg

Porsche Australia has announced its latest addition to the 911 Carrera family, the Carrera T, that the Stuttgart manufacturer says is the lightest series 911 with an entry-level engine. 

With PASM sports suspension, 10mm lower ride height, reduced insulation and the option to remove the rear seats, the T slots in between the base Carrera and Carrera S in the 911 lineup

The new 911 Carrera T will cost $280,600 before on-road costs, with both a seven-speed manual transmission and a no-cost eight-speed PDK dual-clutch available for buyers.

The 911 Carrera T competes with other luxury sports cars such as the Jaguar F-Type, BMW 8 Series, Audi R8, Lexus LC500 and the soon-to-be-released Mercedes-AMG SL roadster

The new 911 Carrera T is available to order now from Porsche dealerships across Australia. 

How does the 911 Carrera T differ from a standard Carrera?

The new 911 Carrera T uses the same twin-turbocharged flat-six engine as the base 911 Carrera. That means outputs remain at 283kW/450Nm

However, the T model comes with the Sport chrono package along with PASM sports suspension – both of which are options on the Carrera S. 

Other standard features for the Carrera T include a GT sports steering wheel, a sports exhaust system and four-way electric sports seats.

The T is also lighter thanks to reduced insulation, lightweight glass and a lightweight battery. 

Porsche says the interior of the T is  unique compared to the rest of the Carrera lineup due to dark grey accentuating details. Grey colour contrast has been added to the exterior mirrors, door logos and trim strips.

Optional equipment for the 911 Carrera T 

The 911 Carrera T can be optioned with several features, including adaptive sports seats with 18-way electric adjustment. Also optional is an extended leather interior with armrests, centre console and upper parts of the dashboard finished in leather trim.

In terms of colour options, crayon, ruby star neo, carmine red, shark blue and python green are available as options. The paint-to-sample programme will be available, also, that offers over 110 different colours. 

Australian Carrera Ts will be additionally equipped with LED matrix headlights, automatic dimming mirror, park assist, adaptive cruise control, a Bose surround sound system, seat heating and digital radio.
