2018 Porsche 911 Carrera T first drive

The road ahead > the road behind

Through the road and behind the wheel, the Carrera T’s drama is every bit intact despite its parts-bin genesis. The existence in other cars of most of the bits that comprise the Carrera T doesn’t spoil it at all, it’s a whole-sum car.

It transcends its rear-weight bias of more than 60 percent to delight its front passengers beyond numbers.

The Carrera T responds in a progressive, naturally aspirated way, but with turbocharged immediacy. It rolls out of corners in ways that purists would recognize as vintage Porsche, sped up with new technology. The throttle presses forward directly proportional to my courage, and exponentially proportional to my smile. Small stabs make big grins.

It’s an occasion for remembering where the 911 can go as it enters a new generation. Where it has been matters, too, but not as much, we think.
The road ahead looks clear from here.
