A stripped-down version of the Porsche 911 will be available next year with the new 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T confirmed this morning by the German sports car maker.
Paying tribute to the 911 T model from 1968, the 2018 version will be the lightest car in the current 911 range and tips the scales at just 1425kg (around 55kg lighter than a standard 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera).

The model also gets lowered suspension (down 10mm), optional rear-axle steering, manual transmission with shorter constant transaxle ratio, and mechanical rear differential lock.
All that adds up to just a 4.3 second sprint to 100km/h – 0.1 seconds quicker than a standard 911 Carrera.
There’s also a more aggressive front spoiler, ‘Agate Grey’ wing mirrors, titanium grey 20” Carrera S wheels, black exhaust tips and distinctive decals and stripes.
On the inside, Porsche has confirmed the 911 T will boast a shortened gear lever with embossed shift pattern in red, and seat centres made of Sport-Tex material.
