In manual guise, the shortened ratios and new diff help the car hit 100km/h from a standstill in just 4.5 seconds – 0.1 seconds faster than the regular Carrera. The PDK deals with the same sprint in just 4.2 seconds, and keeps pulling to 200km/h in 15.1 seconds.
Inside, there is a leather bound GT sports steering wheel, decorative trims on the dashboard, lightweight four-way electronically adjustable seats with so-called Sport-Tex fabric upholstery and 911 logos on the headrest and a shortened gear lever when specified with the standard manual gearbox.
The Carrera T is slightly faster than its standard sibling though with the 0-100km/h sprint passing in 4.5 seconds in manual form, a 0.1 second reduction compared to the original version.
Because otherwise, working out the point of a two-seat 911 with no radio, nav or rear seats but without a GT3 drivetrain beneath might be difficult. It’s on sale now, from £85,576 (about £8,000 up on standard), which at least undercuts every other hardcore 911 by quite a margin.
