Porsche's 1968 911T "Touring" model acted as a base model, more or less replacing the four-cylinder 912.

The 2018 Porsche 911 T revives the "Touring" trim, but instead of a base model, it's meant more as a mid-level performance offering.

The owner gets a choice of a seven-speed manual or Porsche's PDK dual-clutch.

With the manual, it'll hit 60 mph in 4.3 seconds, 0.1 second quicker than a standard 911 Carrera, thanks to shorter gear ratios in the transmission.

Inside, owners get a unique set of sport seats with fabric seat centers and "911" embossed in black on the headrests.
