THE PORSCHE 911 CARRERA T AWAKENS THE DRIVER’S SENSES WITH ITS ABILITY TO DELIVER THE UNADULTERATED DRIVING PLEASURE ENTHUSIASTS CRAVE.
As you tap on your smartphone, type out e-mails and entertain clients, it’s easy to forget that beneath the sharp suit you’re wearing, beats the heart of a driver. It’s also easy to forget that the sunshine that beams down on the simmering asphalt is also a golden light beckoning you to the open road.
As drivers, we desire to bathe in the cultured roar of an engine, operate a rifle bolt-like gearbox and feel the evocative caress of rubber on the road. Deep in our souls is a yearning to know the primal eruptions of pure sensual pleasure that only a visceral driving experience can arouse.
In our everyday lives, these feelings are smothered, ignored and almost forgotten. It is time to take off the blazer, strip away the excess… and take a deep breath. It’s time to reawaken your senses.
Finely honed and obsessively finessed to deliver the purest sensory experience, the 911 Carrera T (for “Touring”) is Porsche’s gift to the dedicated driver. The 911 Carrera T’s purpose is to fill every journey with unfiltered driving gratification.
The Porsche 911 Carrera T sends you down the road with 370hp and 450Nm of vivid and instantaneously responsive propulsion, which is titratable to millimetre precision with the throttle.
For purists, direct control is available via a 7-speed PDK with shorter transmission ratios and dynamic intermediate acceleration function. A sports exhaust system, with black centrally positioned tailpipes, thunders the twin-turbocharged flat-6’s intoxicating aural signature through reduced insulation and directly into your mind’s pleasure centre.
The road ahead, be it a serpentine mountain pass or the thronging cauldron of a bustling city network, is an enticing challenge on a limitless playground. Taking to it with so much firepower should be intimidating. Yet the Porsche 911 Carrera T’s controllability instils confidence in its driver, making it a sports car to savour and explore.
You’ll feel the 911 Carrera T wrap around you like a second skin, and you’ll be able to paint just about any picture you want across a canvas of bitumen. The 911 Carrera T’s dragonfly-like agility is delivered by a combination of technological integrity and weight-saving ingenuity.
Armed with a mechanical limited-slip differential, Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV), a lowered Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) sports chassis and a body made with lightweight materials, the 911 Carrera T is capable of annihilating corners with soul-stirring abandon.
Intimate. Emotional. Unfiltered. Made for drivers, not for collectors. Made for the next corner, not the garage. Made for the journey, not the destination. This is the thoroughbred 911: conceived, designed, and engineered to distil the very essence of driving pleasure. This is the Porsche 911 Carrera T.
