2023 Porsche 911 Carrera T


In 2018, Porsche debuted the 911 Carrera T for enthusiasts. It was a base model with optional performance enhancements, retro style, and a lighter curb weight.

On paper, not as impressive as 911s, but a great car. The Carrera T returns four years later, starting up where it left off.

What's remarkable about the Carrera T is that it combines the 911's base engine tuning (379 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque) with a manual transmission.

Before, you needed a Carrera S to obtain a manual, but the T's $118,050 base price makes it the cheapest manual 911.

With a curb weight of only 3254 pounds, the 911 Carrera T is also the variant of the car that has the lowest weight.

This is a 100-pound savings over the base Carrera, however 84 pounds of that is due to the inclusion of the manual transmission as standard.

Standard features include lowered, strengthened Sport suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) adjustable dampers, and a Sports exhaust

Inside, it's similar to a base 911 Carrera, but it has reinforced Sport Seats Plus and a smaller GT Sport steering wheel.

From the outside, you'll be able to spot a T by the decals on the doors, and unique metallic-gray mirrors and wheels

At $118,050, it is, of course, a very expensive car. Nonetheless, in the realm of 911, it has some significance.

A 911 Carrera S with the same performance upgrades costs well over $130,000, and many of those amenities are not available on the standard Carrera.
