The new Porsche 911 Carrera T (the "T" stands for Touring, not Turbo), which is a tip of the hat to the original 911 T from way back in 1968, checks in at 3,142 pounds, making it 11 pounds lighter than the base 911 Carrera. Rear-axle steering, an option usually reserved for Carrera S buyers, is also included in the Carrera T.

The interior can be as back-to-basics as you like, with reduced sound deadening, lightweight glass for the rear and rear-side windows, no rear seats, door handles (instead, you get these nylon loops) or even Porsche's infotainment system. At 1,425 kg, it's 20 kg lighter than a comparable 911 Carrera. The body parts and wheels function as clear differentiating elements.

The German company Porsche has officially unveiled the 370-horsepower 911 Carrera coupe T Coupe. The rear view is characterized by the slats in the rear lid grille, the Porsche logo, the "911 Carrera T" model designation in Agate Grey and the sports exhaust system are standard, with centrally positioned twin tailpipes painted in black. Peer inside and you'll also spot the fabric door pulls, some bespoke textile sports seats and colour-matched stitching in one of three shades.

In the same pursuit of sporting purity and instantaneous performance, the auto comes without rear seats (but if you ask nicely, Porsche will reinstall them at no extra cost), nor does it offer much, if anything, in terms of sound deadening. Steering actions are completed via the GT sports steering wheel with leather rim, and the mode switch provided on the steering wheel as standard allows the driver to select different driving programmes. Shortened gear lever, seat centers made of Sport-Tec material. The interior can be ha with contrasting colors in racing yellow, guards red, or GT silver.

Raiders Team Grades: Raiders Beat Chiefs In Huge Come-From-Behind Win
Amari Cooper , who had done nothing so far this season, caught a season-high 11 receptions for 201 yards and two touchdowns. The Raiders will have 10 days to get ready for a tough road game against the Buffalo Bills in Orchard Park on October 29.

Power comes from the 365bhp 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine common to the base Carrera models, but performance is aided by a better power-to-weight ratio and shorter gear ratios. Those opting for the PDK will get a zero-to-60 time of four-seconds flat, and a top track speed of 180 miles per hour. It's also capable of going from zero to 200 km/h in 15.1 seconds.

Top speed is rated at 'over 290km/h' regardless of which transmission is specified.
