A wonderful seven-speed manual transmission is standard, though you can get a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic if that's your style.

The 911 T uses rear-wheel drive and doesn't have the wider rear end of the Carrera 4 and GTS models.

The Carrera T comes standard with Porsche's PASM sport suspension, a short-throw shifter and is the only base 911 that can be optioned with rear-axle steering.

A unique aero lip spoiler and gray exterior accents set the T apart from other base 911 Carrera models.

The Carrera T gets the thinner rear-side and back window glass from the hardcore 911 GT2 RS, which saves about eight pounds.
