EXTERIOR

The introduction of the second generation 991 saw some subtle but notable exterior design changes, whilst retaining the iconic 911 formula that has worked so well for the past 50 years. The Carrera T was introduced as the lightweight alternative to Porsche’s model range, with driver engagement and sensory enjoyment at the forefront. This example is finished in the timeless shade of Flat Black, offset by the Carrera Classic alloys. Paintwork remains in good condition overall having recently benefitted from our professional detailing. The bodywork presents free from any dents, scuffs, or major blemishes, with just a couple of stone chips to note.

INTERIOR

Echoing the subtle upgrades to the exterior, inside the 991.2 also saw a shift in modern touches. This Carrera T boasts an incredibly high spec, with the all-important carbon fibre bucket seats. Welcome premium options such as Burmester, heated Alcantara steering wheel and Porsche Dynamic Lighting System Plus (PDLS Plus) set this example apart from others available on today’s market and condition wise, the interior presents incredibly well with only the lightest signs of use to report.

THE DRIVE & ENGINE

The 991 took the Porsche 911 in a new direction. The Carrera T takes it back the other way.

The Porsche 911 Carrera T is designed to make you think of old 911s. Its name references the 911 T of 1968-1973, a basic model designed to lower the barrier of entry for Porsche’s then-new rear-engine six-cylinder sports car. There are grey painted mirrors, a modern reinterpretation of the single chromed mirror you used to get on a 911, while optional cloth seats and fabric door pulls also recall days gone by.

Old 911s are simple machines—small, lightweight, and unburdened by technology. That’s why people love them so much. They offer a joyous, pared-back experience that’s increasingly hard to find elsewhere. The Carrera T encapsulates everything good about old school and delivers it in a modern, incredibly capable package. 

The T nestles between the 370-hp Carrera and the 420-hp Carrera S in the 911 line-up. It uses the former’s 370-hp twin-turbocharged flat-six yet takes on the adaptive suspension (PASM) from the Carrera GTS, a Sport Exhaust system with black exhaust tips, a shorter final-drive ratio, a limited-slip rear differential and a lightweight version of the 911’s Sport Chrono package.

This 911 Carrera T (having been exclusively cared for by Porsche Main Dealer) performs without fault as you’d expect and presents itself as perhaps the pinnacle of an all-round, useable sports car that can turn its hand to any activity. One of the only cars available with the highly sought-after bucket seats, along with an enviable spec list, a viewing is highly recommended.
